    My pram has just been delivered to store and we are going to pick it up soon! Yey! I'm nearly 34w pregnant so just thought it would be easier keeping it at our house, even if is 'bad luck'

    My MIL has quite openly said we are silly for doing this and we are tempting fate! Aren't we tempting fate by getting anything before the birth? And I doubt people wait until baby is here to do all shopping!

    Anyways she's really got my back up! How do you all feel about this superstitious? Xx

    wow theres superstitious and theres superstitious lol.

    I am a little superstitious but to the point where we didnt tell anyone or buy anything till i reached 3 months (but thats just my personal choice). But i think at 34w i think your quite alright :) What are you ment to do not buy a thing until baby arrives? You have to prepare and to be honest im hoping to get as much as possible sooner rather than later as i think when i get too big im not going to be bothered with getting stuff so i want to be ready and waiting.

    I think your MIL is being a bit OTT on the whole superstitious thing, im sure it would be more awkward if you had nothing for the baby when he/she arrived!

    Get your pram and be excited about it, think she is being a bit of a kill joy he he.

    Crickey what with everything we have to deal with we have the MIL also :)

    Sorry but I agree with you mil! I'm very superstitious and when I get my pram will be keeping it at my mums until we bring baby home from hospital, I know it sounds stupid but Iv just heard that its bad luck to have the pram in the house before the baby! But if your not superstitious then I would just do what you want! X

    I must admit all my family and OHs are superstitious with the whole pram thing so we have ours at his parents and then once the baby is born we'll bring it home. I dont believe you cant buy anything before the baby comes, we have everything sorted now and nursery is all decorated and furniture up its just the pram superstition we believe in. Suppose everyone has their own opinions and if you dont believe in it then go and pick your pram up and ignore your MIL lol :) Just tell her you dont believe in it and your happy for the pram to be at your house. Xx

    We had pram home when I was 38w (it had been at my parents before that)

    IMO If you believe in one superstition then you have to believe in them all and everything would be bad luck lol!

    MIL can keep it then, but might just keep car seat!

    Well my parents live 50 miles away so I'm not leaving anything there :lol:

    I'm going to put mine in the garage once I get it, so technically, its not in the house is it.... :)

    To be fair my in laws live a mile down the road from the hospital I had LO at and OH ended up there most nights for his tea etc, so it was actually easier leaving it all there!

    we had ours delivered when i was 36 weeks. What about with second babies? the pushchair is already in the house.

    The reason it was seen as bad luck in the olden days was because the mortality rate was so high and they had no way of selling a pram when they lost babies which sadly happened so often that it was something to blame etc. x

    I don't believe things like that are going to have the slightest effect on my pregnancy. We got given our pram, so have had it up in the house since I was about 7/8 weeks!!

    The only things I've not got are whatever my mum has bought us, apparently that's "a gift" for when the baby arrives - nothing to do with superstition though!!

    My nursery has been complete since around 22weeks and the pram has been here since then also all ready to go. What on earth has a pram being stored in the house have to do with how the pregnancy is doing? Just nonsense.
