Just a question - if & when DH & I finally have a baby I'll be stopping work for at least 6 months or so. I only work part time on a casual contract so once I stop that's it for one of our incomes. As such I'm telling myself it's better to get some big ticket items now while we still have 2 incomes & no outgoings as far as Dr's fees etc. BUT I can't help but wonder if I'm counting my chickens so to speak! I already have children from my first marriage but the youngest is 9 this year so now baby things at our place! Anyone else get in early for baby goods or are you waiting for the BFP (or even 12 or 20 weeks etc)?
