Are you saving more than usual for a baby fund? No, not really, only because we're not even sure we will be able to get pregnant during the time frame necessary for it to fit with school and all of that...once we do get pregnant, that will definitely change
Have you bought any baby items pre-BFP? I did with my DD, or rather I had a rubbermaid container that I would purchase amazing clearance items or outfits that I just couldn't pass up since I was in college. Most of the items were green (my favorite color anyways) and neutral. For example, I purchased a Lime Green Boppy pillow that Target had on clearance for $7 years ago. It was pretty amazing to be able to use the items when my DD was born. As for this time around, I have purchased nothing specifically for this potential new baby, but I always have new clearance baby clothes on hand since so many of my girlfriends are pregnant and having babies!
Do you splurge on higher priced tests like FRERs or just stick to the internet cheapies? Usually $ Tree tests until I get a positive, then FRER or digi. But this time around, one of my girlfriends who was blessed enough to conceive the very first month of trying gave me like 25 internet cheapies that she had purchased and didn't need anymore That's the only reason I've been POAS since 4dpo. They didn't cost me anything!
Are you saving more than usual for a baby fund? I wouldn't say we are saving more than usual necessarily, but we do think of what we have saved as our baby fund. With me not working it's hard for us to save anymore than we already do. We did recently pay off our January cruise out of savings but we try not to touch it other than that big expense we've planned for.
Have you bought any baby items pre-BFP? I have not. With me having such a hard time O'ing I've kind of convinced myself it won't happen for us, and I don't want a bunch of baby stuff around after we decide it's time to have my hysterectomy.
Do you splurge on higher priced tests like FRERs or just stick to the internet cheapies? Back when I O'd the first time I got some digis, got a BFN and AF showed up quickly after so I only used one. The other two expired before I O'd again. Now I just use the ICs and if I get a faint line on one of those I'll get a FRER or digi.
