Have you ever been tempted to buy baby gear/clothes while ttc? Or have you bought anything?


Do you believe that it's bad luck (tempting fate) to buy baby gear/clothes while ttc?



Once pregnant, how long do you think you'll wait before buying baby stuff?

Have you ever been tempted to buy baby gear/clothes while ttc? Or have you bought anything? Yes. The only time I bought something though was after I got my BFP in August.


Do you believe that it's bad luck (tempting fate) to buy baby gear/clothes while ttc? Yes, but I am overly superstitious to begin with.



Once pregnant, how long do you think you'll wait before buying baby stuff? Probably 12 weeks - for the same reason above!

I've been tempted, but more at the beginning of TTC when I was NAIVE and thought it would happen quickly

Do you believe that it's bad luck (tempting fate) to buy baby gear/clothes while ttc?

I am mildly superstitious...but when I do get that BFP, I will probably not be able to resist buying something!

I will probably buy SOMETHING, like a gender neutral onesie, right away...but then hold off on other stuff until 12 weeks...

I'm always tempted but never buy. I do have one thing-an Australian rugby onsie that we bought when we were over there visiting DH's family in July 2007. I just couldn't resist-and it was kind of a special thing-so I figured "what the heck"....


Do you believe that it's bad luck (tempting fate) to buy baby gear/clothes while ttc? I'm pretty superstitious...so I'm always worried about tempting fate...wish I wasn't though....

I'm going to try to hold out until the BIG ultrasound at around 18 weeks. That way-I can be sure that everything is ok thus far-and we'll hopefully know the gender.

Realistically-I'll be lucky to wait till 12 weeks

I have a whole bunch of stuff that I have bought while TTC. I wasn't really planning on buying ahead, but it all started one day at Target when I found some maternity t-shirts on sale for $3.99. I bought 3 of them, figuring no matter when I got pregnant I would definitely need solid-color t-shirts, and I couldn't pass up such an awesome deal. Since then I have bought a bunch more maternity clothes and quite a bit of baby stuff. I shop only clearance sales, and I have gotten some amazing bargains. I figure when I do eventually get pregnant, I won't have to stress about buying the basics since I have a nice little stockpile.

I have often wondered this myself. I know some people that have TONS of baby things and are still working on the baby thing. For me, I just haven't been able to bring myself to do it. Not sure if it's a superstition thing or not but I would worry that my friends would think I'm weird because I'm purchasing things for something that just may never happen.

I usually get my baby purchasing out of my system by spoiling all of my friends kids! I love to go shopping for baby stuff and usually have at least one friend I can buy something for.

Once I'm PG... I'll be lucky if I wait at all... . At first I'll probably get really excited and want to buy tons of stuff, but that's what we have husbands for right girls...

Have you ever been tempted to buy baby gear/clothes while ttc? Or have you bought anything? No. I just can't do it. It kills me too much to look at it....


Do you believe that it's bad luck (tempting fate) to buy baby gear/clothes while ttc? No not at all. Just something I can't do.



Once pregnant, how long do you think you'll wait before buying baby stuff? When I finally concieved Luke, I was so darn petrified of getting excited and losing him that I actually didn't buy anything until I was about 4-5 months along. It was a bouncer for christmas....My mom had bought a blanket, but I kept it hidden. I was so darn paranoid. I didn't start really getting ready for him to come until my 7th month.

Do you believe that it's bad luck (tempting fate) to buy baby gear/clothes while ttc? No not really.



Once pregnant, how long do you think you'll wait before buying baby stuff? I have waited until I found out sex of the baby, about 15 weeks, I went shopping for little girl clothes right after I left the doc office.

Its really bad luck to buy stuff before the end of the first trimester IMO.

Do you believe that it's bad luck (tempting fate) to buy baby gear/clothes while ttc? not at all...It helps me cope, everytime I get a BFN I buy stuff, makes me feel a little better


Once pregnant, how long do you think you'll wait before buying baby stuff? I will be buying stuff probably as soon as I find out!

I bought some gender neutral items immediately when I found out I was pregnant with Mason. When I was pregnant the second time, I ordered maternity clothes online (oldnavy was having a sale) even before I got my positive pregnancy test-- I was that certain I was pregnant. I also bought a tiny pink baby blanket and pink shoes b/c I was convinced I was having a girl. I lost that baby at 11 weeks with a missed miscarriage, and I used to take those items out and hold them after for several months, and it just made me so sad. I finally was able to give the shoes away to one of my best friends, when we knew she was having a girl. I told them how special they were to me. I still have the blankie. Since then, I was shopping for one of my other friends who had a baby and I bought a new diaper bag for myself. It was so cute and I just have faith that someday, I WILL need that diaper bag.
