    Urgh.

    Just been sorting out our spare room.

    The second we started TTC last summer I started baby shopping!

    I didn't even consider it might take this long (was anticipating an April 2012 baby!?!) so took a free Ikea changing unit I was offered and the thing was full by September.

    I've got so many cloth nappies. 2 changing bags, bottles, clothes.

    I don't go near it really anymore. I was just looking at one of the changing bags today as I could get £80 for it and I'm not convinced it'll be big enough for cloth.

    Anyway. Looking at it all really made me feel like an idiot. :( And it's made me feel so hopeless. :(

    oh dont be too disheartened, im sure we have been ttc for the same time - cycle 8 now for me, it will happen!!

    when we first started ttc i was soooo excited i could spend hours researching prams, looking at cribs etc on the internet, now i dont ever go on those sites, its getting too hard. i dont even do hpts at the end of my cycle now, just wait for AF as I know its coming cause of spotting and temp drops :(

    i never bought anything but i know what i want when i can - an UppaBaby Vista or Bugaboo or iCandy pram. A beautiful dark wood cot, cream bedding, a nursing rocking chair etc etc. i gonna stop, i might cry, aarrgghhhh :cry:

    im exactly the same...been trying nearly 7 months and never imagined it wood take this long (how naive indeed)

    first couple of months i too was on all the baby websites etc (i also know what pram and nursing chair etc im having), but recently become a bit disheartened and feel silly.

    I think after a certain amount of time u cant believe ul ever get that bfp....i know i dont

    it WILL happen for us tho girls...it has to for our own sanity lol cupcake there will come a time (very soon i hope) that all the things u have bought will be used xxxx

    Oh, I know how you feel, I thought it would happen straight away but it took 13 long cycles for me.
    Chin up girls, at least you're all prepared!

    I was the same. Thought it would happen straight away, just like last time.
    I have still got stuff from when AJ was small. I now have a full set of bottles, Steriliser and bottles, change bag nappies etc too.

    I stopped buying a while back, cant believe its been over a year now since starting ttc :( x

    I can't help myself looking at prams and baby clothes etc I have not bought anything for myself but have come very close. I think it's natural to plan and be keen to buy baby things when TTC.

    I'm sure you will be making good use of your baby items soon

    I think we all do it, look, resrearch and buy. I haven't bought anything but I'm always looking at stuff I'd love. I am buying now something every week but it's not for me it's for my 1st grandchild due in April, both my son and his girlfriend are in college so I'm trying to get bits for then as they are going to struggle, I've been pram shopping with them as I said I'd get it for them I got so down after but at least I've something to look forward to, I keep thinking to my self this will be the little angle I can't have :-(
