    Is it just me or is time standing still right now? I am dying to start buying stuff for my baby but really can't at 7 weeks pregnant!! Husband has said no way and my sensible head agrees. I've seen this really cute teddy bear chair thing for the nursery. As soon as we get the all clear in 12 week scan I'm buying it :)

    At 9 weeks my husband made me go and buy one baby grow, he saw how much I was worrying and fretting so he thought a baby grow would make it seem more real.
    I found a really cute Giraffe one from H&M, now I want baby to come so they can wear it :)

    I'm the same, only 9 weeks but I can't stop secretly window shopping on the net. Hubby would think I was insane if I went buying! So I am keeping my secret for now and just saving the money ready!

    When I get to my first scan I'll be hitting those shops with a vengence and my credit card! I'd start saving now, put a bit aside each week and then have a big splurge once you get to 12 weeks x

    I already bought a pram but only because it's worth £800 new and I got it for £150 from someone. It's a travel system too so multi-use, good reasons I keep telling myself. I felt bad afterwards though. Although I bought it with the mind that if I don't need it I can resell it to someone who will. Nope, still feel bad, doh!

    I had friends give away their baby clothes
    So I've loads vacuum packed for boys, girls and unisex
    Even before getting pregnant id bought loads already
    When I found out, David spotted a travel system worth about a grand being sold at work, so we got that as so good an offer
    All we need is nursery furniture, bedding , some toys and the medicationy type bits in
    I'm that sorted
    I've even got a moses basket so im already set up for a newborn

    I don't see it as jinxing
    I've no reason to fear that I can't carry a child to term
    If I couldn't, I could foster or adopt
    Sorted :)

    I am so pleased there are a couple of people on here that bought things before they were pregnant. We bought stuff before I was pregnant. I am a Winnie The Pooh fanatic and wanting the Winnie The Pooh nursery range from mothercare. They have lost the rights to make the furniture so I found out 10 weeks ago it was half price £500 rather than £1000 but once the stock was gone that was it they wouldn't be making anymore so after much thought we bought it. It's just sitting in it's boxes in the spare room. We said if we had problems we could always sell it on. However I am 6 weeks and 6 days now so fingers crossed we did the right thing x

    This this 100% this.

    This is exactly where I am at right now, we have been through a lot to get to 13 weeks pregnant, so I've considered a hell of a lot of options, but before my scan we went to a baby show and bought bottles and a carrier (about £150 worth of stuff) and I said to my husband "If something DID go wrong, then we will use it for the next one, or if we ever adopt" :)
    I think it's quite a healthy attitude to have.

    I was quite excited about getting the pram and told my manager, she didn't react how I thought and she called me a silly girl. ugh.
