Hello all, I was wondering is there any moms that waitied until your baby was born to get thing's. A Facebook friend of mine was 38 weeks and lost her son last night. Im 29 weeks and nervous to get thing's now, much as I hate to think about it anything can happen.

I waited, but mainly because we did not know the gender.

I get stuff before then. It does make you nervous, but the chances of baby making it through the pregnancy are way higher than the chances of a loss like that so you need at least the basics.

I got at least a carseat, clothing, place for baby to sleep and bottles

No we prepared well in advance. Although, that fear of coming home without my baby to a home full of reminders was on my mind, but we still had everything we needed for our babies.

I'm 37 weeks and I only have the essentials, mostly given to us by friends. We've only waited so long because of money issues. You're definitely going to want some things before the baby comes - carseat, bassinet/crib, diapers, clothes...
