  • IMO yes that would be nuts lol
    What if theings didnt go right and you never had another one?
    Id personally wait it out til you are at least pregnant.
    You could always set the money aside as a " save for baby" fund

  • Yes. If something happened and you didn't get the baby you planned, how could you get rid of all the stuff? It would be heart wrenching to say the least. I would start putting money away for the possibility, but would not buy anything until the second trimester.

  • I don't live in the US. Adoption in my country is extremely easy.

  • I dont think its crazy, i think if you are asking the question you are feeling like you are crazy. Buying stuff here and there but not alot is fine. My MIL got dresses for a girl because she swears our next baby will be a girl lol

  • i don't think it is crazy! when you do get preggers you will have less $ needed at that time! if things really end up not working out, then you have baby shower gifts galore!
    good luck!

  • ok you sound obsessed with the idea of a baby, I was too when we were TTC. I agree with PP not to buy yet, but start a "baby fund" but just to keep you and your baby excitement busy, why don't you go to target or walmart and do a baby registry. Have fun pretending all the stuff you want to buy, you can even add and adjust it online daily. That should keep you busy with baby stuff for a while.

  • I'd make absolutely sure that baby was on the way before buying anything.
