preparing for baby before there is a baby

Did you do anything as far as purchasing items go, before you even conceived?

I have severe baby fever. It should be a real medical condition. It is all I think about. Not to the detriment of my family, but it really affects me.

The women in my birth family have a lot of children. I wont say how many, because I wouldn't be believed anyway, but I'm not talking about just 10 children. My 25 year old sister has 7. With my daughter, we decided we wanted a baby, I tacked when I ovulated, and that month I was pregnant. My husband and I have been ttc since the end of 2010. In my family, that's a lifetime.

Dr's have suggested my husband find a way to medicate me. Dh has told me that I can start decorating a nursery. I know that he doesn't truly understand how much pain I'm in, but I appreciate that he is making an effort.

I gathered for years. I knit blankets. I quilted. I wanted a baby for two years before we got pregnant.

I feel like if I do nothing but wait, there will be so much sadness and tension in the house. You know? A nursery takes a while to take care of, so it will give me something to do for quite some time.

Sadness and tension inhibit pregnancy. You need to try to rid yourself of it. I know that is hard.

 my cousin's (2 of them) has ove 7kids (this is 7 kids for each cousin)

 they i guess like "big families" i am a big fan of "big families" after my 1st child being 9pounds 3oz's..... yeah NO MORE BABIES FOR ME!

 it is good to prepare IMO up to 6 months to a year (so nothing will be a "rush".)

I didn't do anything to prepare for a baby before I even conceived but that does sound like a good idea.

No not until i got pregnant. Although when we started trying for our third I did start saving the older kids stuff for hand me downs.
