    I know how it feels, Sunset, but unless it's something VERY unusual and that won't go out of use, I wouldn't do it. I'd be careful about buying too much for babies anyway even when the time comes. Wait until you know what others will get you and the baby. :halo:

    We have my parents and his within 10 minutes drive. Our child (whenever s/he decides to arrive) will be incredibly spoiled.

      Ok so like I did something similar. I chose baby names like 10 years ago and I remember him saying the same thing about tempting fate. So......he was right. I have no kids. But a bunch of baby names

        Depends on how many months pregnant you are.

          I've heard this "tempting fate" thing from him as well. But not about kids - other things. Everytime he said it, I'd get annoyed. But now... I am just scared.

            When my sis got pregnant, we waited until the last trimester and then started buying things and had a HUGE baby shower. Most of the baby things were bought by guests and family. All she had to do was buy the necessities like bottles and wipes.

            We bought a crib, changing table, stroller, baby armoire, diapers, clothes, onesies, socks, etc etc etc. My sis didnt buy any clothes until my niece was about 8 months.

                      My advice: Keep praying for you and your baby's health and wellness and at the same time - go all out!

                      Enjoy these moments by shopping and pamperig yourself - your life will never be the same again once you have a baby.
                      A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

                        How do you say "dont tempt fate" in urdu?
                        it's the heart afraid of dying, that never learns to dance; It's the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance; It's the one who won't be taken, who cannot seem to give; And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live.

                          For both my kids I bought stuff the minute I found out I was pregnant, but not in the planning for a family stage. It was easier to buy stuff slowly out of the montly budget and stock up on diapers, clothes etc. not tomention the sales, I even got to stock upon out of season clothes for when teh kid got older.
