    I'm 20+2 and I'm just wondering when you ladies think I should start buying the big things like the pram, the cot, and all the other stuff the baby will need? :/

    I don't wanna jinx it! Xxx

    Im waiting until my scan before i get anything else, if you are ordering furniture most take a while for delivery so may need ordered soon. You can still wait a couple months yet if you want or buy and store it in someone elses house if you dont want to have it in your house yet x

    I haven't bought anything but my family have got bits for me, so I have two travel systems. One is in my flat. I'm dot believe in jinxing, not superstitious at all. Going to get a Moses and buy a cot probably just before or after baby is here xxx

    I'm not superstitious at all.

    I bought my stuff when I had the money to buy it, no particular time line.

    That's probably the best way to do it to be honest, money is so tight at the moment I've only got a few bits of clothing up to now! :| Really need to get a shimmy on!

    We started after 20w scan, we wanted it all paid for before I went on maternity leave! Gave us plenty of time to pay off the credit card etc...

    We had all our big stuff ordered before 20 week scan but chose to have it delivered later on so could cancel orders if needed but don't really believe in superstition or jinxing it, just thought what will be will be and that's it. Am pleased we did order bits as now have all our big bits and mostly set up in nursery. Still got lots of little bits to buy to keep me busy for the last 13 weeks or so.

    Enjoy shopping!! Xxx
