so.... um.... I am guilty!!! Today I found the cot that I want so bad it is on sale and I will save myself $700
Whats upsetting though is I only just had a miscarriage a few days ago what should I do? DP says its up to me if I can handle it then get it... I am a bargain hunter in all aspects so this is just too good of a thing to pass up!
We went to the USA for our honeymoon and I bought lots of gorgeous baby clothes and blankets over there. They have so much more choice and everything was so cheap at the outlets in Las Vegas. I also bought maternity clothes over there. I wasn't pregnant, but I was three months later!
I've been wanting to buy baby stuff for the last 12 years since I got my first wave of cluckiness at the age of 18. I was working at Target back then and one day I caved and bought a pair of tiny socks (for about $1) and a small bottle (cause it had stars and planets on it so I thought it was cool ). These two things have been sitting in my cupbaord for all that time, along with my old baby blanket and a tiny pink cardigan that my mum knitted years ago for fun and I insisted on keeping. Apart from the socks I probably won't end up using any of it, lol.
However as much as I would love to, I won't buy anything now. With DF and I having to do IVF it would be tempting fate as far as I'm concerned. We do refer to one of the spare bedrooms as "the baby's room" and there is a video baby monitor on our wedding registry list (it's $400 though so we're not expecting anyone to buy it, hehe). But I draw the line at buying stuff.... even that nice nappy bag I saw a few months back.
I have always wanted to buy baby stuff! I've always made do by wandering through the baby sections in shops and looking at all the adorable things to buy (even the baby section at Coles with formula and nappies and stuff lol!). When DH finally agreed to TTC, I went and bought two little onesies, one that says "Mummy loves my cuddles" and one that says "Mad about Dad" that I'll give him when we get a BFP. I'm not doing anymore than that...no matter how much I want to buy a Baby Jogger City Select!
