Would you do this or is it silly??

We are TTC child number 3 right now and hopeing at the end of July we get a positive. Do you think its silly to have already started to buy diapers,onesies,burp clothes and all the other basic essentials? I personally think its smart and by the time the baby gets here we diff. will have just about everything we need plus we wont have to buy it all at once cause we started buying it early and a little at a time. Have you or would you do this?

  • I don't think is is silly, but I would not do it. I would think that would jinx me.

  • gee by the time kid #3 rolled around all i had to buy was diapers lol. but no i wouldn't buy anything until i get a positive test. it would make me sad seeing all that stuff and then getting a negative test. but gl and hope you get a +!

  • I guess it would depend on how easily you get pregnant. if you've never had trouble before, I say got for it.

  • I don't see anything wrong with it, but what if your not pregnant by then. I would just save the money up in a baby piggy bank and when you find out that you are, you can shop all you want.

  • I would probably wait for the positive, but I don't think it's silly. I do the same thing with Christmas shopping - that way in December I dont' blow all of our money, I spend the money bit by bit, instead of all at once!

    Good luck with getting the positive! I hope to get one around that time too ... baby dust to both of us!!!!!!!!!!!
