    You're not alone...I haven't bought anything yet but I've been brousing through stores and picking out strollers, car seats and furniture. I guess I'm kinda superstitious but will buy necessities (blankets and such) in my 7th or 8th month. It's sooo tempting though!

    Nope you are not the only one.

    I've not bought a single thing. I've browsed Mothercare twice, decided on the pram/buggy I would like in a few months time and thats about it.

    I am not superstitious but it doesn't feel right to buy things now. Its a long time till May. Other than the buggy, which my parents may try to get in the sales, I'll wait till I am 7 months plus before I buy the things we'll need.

    I only just brought my cot yesterday.... :rotfl: :rotfl: We were starting to panic... we still haven't got everything yet... and I'm nearly in my 8th month... :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    I didn't get anything other than order a pushchair (at 15 weeks which I'm still waiting for) until my 20 week scan... :)

    I'm the same .... first I was going to wait till after the 12 week scan, now I'm at the "after the 20 week scan" stage.. It's never ending worrying about everything being ok this pregnancy lark I tell you!!!

    I havent bought anything as we are waiting for our scan on Tuesday. I had a mc earlier in the year and still a bit worried even though I can feel the baby kicking all through the day. We thought we would ask for Mothercare vouchers for Christmas and then look for stuff in the sales in Jan! We're also desperate to know whether we are having a boy or girl, and then I think I'll start buying loads of bits! Baby clothes are so cute, especially baby shoes and socks!!

    All I've bought so far is a changing bag cos it was on offer for £10. Really wanting to buy stuff now but know it's better to get James' birthday and xmas sorted first.

    Have been doing lots of window shopping so far to get an idea of what I want, then will probably shop around online for it.
    Might get some bargains in the sales if I hold off too :D

    It's probably a good thing I haven't bought anything yet actually cos I've changed my mind about what pram I want about 5 times already! :lol:

    I haven't bought anything yet either, my parents have bought us a few bits and pieces but we are waiting till after christmas to buy the big items. I think I'm still in denial to be honest :shock:

    We have bought alot of things, but it's been gradual. From week 12 - 23 we only bought clothes, and in the last few weeks we have bought a moses basket, wardrobe for the nursery, a bath set and OH's parents have bought the cot which was delivered on Weds. We only got that so early because it was on offer..My mum and I went and had a look at prams yesterday and she agreed that the Silvercross would be the one to get, but I don't think we will get that till after Christmas.

    we haven't bought anything yet. It would be too much like admitting it was going to happen if we did. We will make a start after Christmas.
