If you aren't pregnant yet I wouldn't, not because I'm superstitious but because you don't need them generally until well after 12 weeks in your first pregnancy, and if you miscarry or have any trouble getting pregnant it can be quite painful to have maternity or baby things around. Also you won't know what season(s) you end up needing maternity stuff for yet. There will always be stuff on sale, there's nothing special about now.
I should have said, it'll be my 3rd! With my second I was in my maternity jeans quite early ! Also conceived quickly with both so don't expect it'll take too long this time either (I know it's not guaranteed) .
I wouldn't buy any seasonal bits it was just jeans really that I'd seen so they can be worn any time of year
I don't think it's bad luck but I wouldn't buy until you need, stuff can be bought pretty cheap second hand on facebook/ebay if and when you need it otherwise it's a bit of a false economy really given that there are no guarantees.
I don’t think it’s bad luck - I bought a maternity dress before I got pregnant not for practical reasons but to help me think positive as I was starting to despair that it would ever happen! It was a nice feeling when I finally got to wear it.
ReginaPhalange89 I'm guilty of this. We've been TTC 10 months and once we decided "Yes, let's TTC" I bought a fair chunk of stuff. Aldi had a baby event on so loads of cute little things (no clothes) but practical stuff that won't go off or will come in handy. I also have boxes of nappies hidden around the house to spread the cost when we finally do get our BFP.
That gives me the fear ! My first was unplanned and second conceived first month, so obviously feel optimistic it'll happen quickly again but it's not always the case ! A close friend of mine was the same, mc after 2 healthy, quick pregnancies and then took a while to conceive. I know I'm lucky to have caught quickly before but fingers crossed it's ok again this time !
@patienceofatoddler yeah I can imagine it would be a shocked ! I'm trying not to get my hopes up just in case but it's hard not to think about it. So impatient already and we aren't even starting TTC til next month 🙈
Yeah I'm going to hold off buying anything . I can't stop googling baby names and different things like prams, cribs etc. Getting so ahead of myself !
