I broke the rule. Okay, I don't know if it's actually a rule, but still.

I bought baby stuff. A car seat, stroller, pack 'n play, a portable swing, and a regular swing.


Of course I feel like a lunatic, but I know that I shouldn't. Think positive, right?

Why did I buy all of this stuff now, you ask? Well, a certain massive baby retailer who shall remain nameless ran a huge promotion: Turn in your old baby stuff and we'll give you 25% off new stuff.

I caved, and it saved me $100.00. That's worth it, right?

Still, I can't believe I bought all this stuff. I'm not even 15 weeks yet! With LJ we didn't buy anything until I was closer to 30-35 weeks. I can't believe how silly I feel. I know that so far, everything looks fine, and like this baby will actually make a healthy appearance in August. But I still can't believe we did it! My house looks like this certain massive baby retailer threw up in my living room!

Sigh. Maybe seeing all this baby gear will help it sink in that I'm currently growing the tiny human that will use it all. Hopefully.

Wow, you are brave! And that's a nice chunk of cash you saved. Even if you had paid full price, it would still seem cheap compared with how much making an IVF baby costs!

Everything is going just fine, and you got a great deal... nothing to stress about. Enjoy having your baby's things around!

All that said, I totally get it... I had this horrible suspicion that I jinxed my first two pregnancies by buying early (much much earlier than you). With Ginny, I refused to buy anything baby until I was well into my second trimester.
