    I think it's a very personal thing whether or not you do!

    I'm hapy to buy a few things here and there when I just can't resist, but I think once I get my :bfp: I'll stop as I'm super paranoid and quite superstisious, and I wouldn't want to jinx it then.. :dohh: don't question my logic on this, it's hanging on a super thin thread :haha:

    i think that if your ok with it then do it! youll be saving money buy getting things gradually, because it wount seem like so much in the end, plus there are lots of lovely items out there. i buy stuff for friends babies, but half think i could buy for myself! x

    DH and I will be trying the end of August. We aren't telling family, who frequently visits our house. We weren't going to buy anything simply because we don't want to jinx ourselves and we don't know where we would put it all without family finding it when they visit! However, I couldn't help myself!

    My sister passed along all of my niece and nephew's baby clothes to me. So I now have 4 storage totes full of baby clothes in my spare bedroom/ soon to be nursery closet. Then, I went shopping and couldn't help but buy a beautiful nursery set at a gently used clothing store! My photo to the left is actually the design. I'm a sucker for monkeys :)
    I was able to get a quilt, bumper pad, crib skirt, fitted sheet, diaper hanger, monkey rug, monkey wall hanging, mobile, lamp, and pillow all for $50. I came home and found out to purchase new would have cost just over $350.

    As for other items like crib, bassinet, carseat, etc. I have made a list of ones that I like so that when I get my BFP I can just click the link online and start buying!!!

    i personally wouldnt just because i think it would be hard to focus on other stuff and also just make the wait harder if i let myself get ahead of things like that. and also just because i want to find out the gender of my baby so i can buy boy or girl clothing someday.

    I guess jinx isn't the proper word for my feelings about originally wanting to wait. I guess I didn't want to have a ton of baby stuff sitting around if I'm not pregnant right away. I thought it would make it hard on me to see it all. But, I gave in and started purchasing stuff. Because my gosh even if I have to adopt I'm going to have a baby! The stuff is also a nice reminder that we are TTC soon and I will be prepared when my BFP comes :)

    i never used to like the idea, but we are going to start buying things now so when it does happen one day we don't have the stress of having to get everything, i dont think i would buy clothes but like toys, bedding, prams, car seats etc and store it all away..
    i dont think there is anything wrong with it, saves the big rush and panic when you actually are pregnant, and you don't have to fork our thousands of bucks within a few months you can drag it out, we will be over 5 years haha

    ^^WSS^^

    Iv put a ban on buying anything else coz Iv gone a bit silly recently. Iv got a suitcase full of baby things (including things Iv knit and books) I bought 3 outfits last week, oops! I want to leave it until I'm pregnant now so I can get all excited buying. If I feel the urge now I'm going to transfer the money into my baby fund instead so I can get something newer (in the shops at that time) at the time
