Anyone else afraid to make bigger purchases? I don't know what it is this pregnancy. As soon as I see something I love with an awesome deal I hesitate last second and don't get it. Part of me fears that it's so early that by the time I reach around 7 months new things will come out (fall items come in) and I'm going to be upset I bought something. But the other part of me knows I've never made it past 8 months and with my last pregnancy even approaching 7 was miserable so I know (in the back of my mind) that I'm not going to want to go all out in the 80 degree heat and humidity to baby shop but I can't bring myself to make any real "decisions" right now :/ Anyone else in this funk?

YES ME! I only need a few things. New infant seat, diapers, wipes, pacifiers. And then any nursing supplies breast pads, lansolin ointment, etc. But even with those few items I'm just having a hard time bringing myself to actually purchase anything '

I don't need too much, and we are hoping to be moving before baby comes along so I don't want to buy something and have to move it.
You make a VERY good point about the heat towards the end of our pregnancies. Ugh! That's not going to be fun!

I am afraid, but I am just paranoid. I found a bassinet at a consignment shop today for 45.00 and I'm kicking myself for not buying it. Then, I came home, to find out Geoff's cousin's baby was born and passed today at 22 weeks, and now I remember why I am so superstitious. So sad.

I'm definitely paranoid. I need to get a new car seat and I don't even have paranoia for that one because the car seat will be for my oldest and newbie will go in his old one. I'm pretty sure I'm getting a Diono but I don't feel like deal hunting at the moment!

That is just horrible Lisa! Love and prayers for your family. I think that is the reason why I am hesitant as well. I'll probably be more comfortable with big purchases after 20 weeks. We just have to keep telling ourselves that situations like the one above are not normal, they are rare compared to the healthy pregnancies and babies people have every day!

Yes, I am pretty paranoid too. I can't go more than a week after my appointments worry that something went wrong.

Last night we were at walmart, and ended up getting the boys so shoes since they were marked down 70% off. Anyway, I saw some really cute boys and girls hats on sale for $1.00, I should have gotten some, but couldn't bring myself to put them in the cart.

I haven't bought any big items yet but its not really because i'm nervous, i'm just waiting because i know i still have time and don't have room in my house to store stuff longer than necessary.

I just saw a few really nice things posted on craigslist... if my bank account looked better I'd really consider the jumperoo and excersaucer.
