My mil doesn't like buying the Pram before the baby arrives, she's Scottish and thinks its bad luck.
The capsule we bought should do bubs until she is around 12 months old, so we were happy to invest in it.

The safe'n'sound unity capsule holds bubs up to 12kg and with a fairly high height limit. My nephew has just moved out of his at 14 months and I have some cousins who were all in theirs until they were over 12 months old.
Funny you talk about superstition. My mum is the same. She told me that in her family it was badluck to have the pram in the house before the baby was born, even claiming miscarriage in the family. When my sister had her baby some years ago she was unaware of this and she bought her pram early lol and I've got my pram too I just haven't told mum. She would flip!!!!!
I've been having dreams of twin boys frequently. Last night I dreamt they came premmie it was weird. I'm not expecting twins lol and I don't think about having twins although I think my little one is a boy. Will be finding out the sex on the 7th hopefully. We have 3d scans booked!!!! I can't wait to see baby. Secretly hoping bub will have more if the polynesian look as opposed to my looks lol. My mum is Italian but doesn't really look Italian although she has the gorgeous olive skin and my father is English fair skinned that is always red looking and tanned from being out in the sun. I'm yellow olive skinned, my younger sister is pale white pinky and my little brother soaked up all the gorgeous warm italian skin. We all have blue eyes and mine have a hint of green in them. Sorry for the carry on lol I've just realized!!!!!

Another superstitious thing - if I talk about food and then don't eat that type of food (even if it's not a craving) I'm not allowed to touch my face - causes birthmarks apparently lol!
4/6 of my nephews are circumcised. The other 2 have a bit of trouble with washing properly, heat aggravation (sweaty, grimy and the occasional infection etc) but seem to manage ok! It's such a personal choice. If I had a boy I am not sure what I'd do, but my 13 y/o nephew had to have his done - ouch... (if i was going to do it i would rather they didn't remember). There are so many views (don't flame me, this is just mine). It is the parents job to do what they think is best for their child considering their circumstances. I know its controversial with the whole (my body, my choice) but parents pierce their kids ears etc etc, and I do think MOST parents will do what they believe is in the best interest of the child... Tradition, religion or otherwise.
