Has anyone made any purchases for baby-related items? If so, what have you bought and why? If no, why not?

I haven't bought anything and I'm quite happy I haven't. I'm always afraid to jinx my chances but I guess at this point my luck isn't too good anyway. I just can't bear the thought of spending money on a "maybe", no matter how cute something is!

I haven't either. When I got my positive test before my m/c I almost bought the cutest little Cleveland Browns onesie and socks

I've started looking for sure, but I haven't bought anything.

No...well, I did buy one thing, but more for me when I'm pregnant than for baby. When we first started trying (almost a year ago) I ordered a t-shirt that I plan to use to tell everyone we are pregnant. It is a black maternity (stretchy) t-shirt with the words "Baby on Board" in white rhinestones across the chest and a little red rhinestone heart on the tummy. I haven't even showed DH, as I had planned to surprise him with wearing it when we get our BFP. It is in the bottom of my dresser drawer collecting dust. I have seriously thought about giving it to my SIL for Christmas if we aren't pregnant by then, she will be about 6 months pregnant by then. But I feel like if I do give it to her, it's like admitting I have given up on getting pregnant....so I probably won't give it to her...because I still have hope.

I also have a Pregnancy Week by Week book...I had bought it for my SIL, not knowing she already had it and felt like if I returned it, it was like admitting I would never need it.

Sorry, I'm a weirdo with my weirdness.

I haven't bought anything, but last week on of my Hispanic cooks told me that she had something to give me. She comes to my office with 3 adorable knitted jackets! I then had to explain to her (in Spanish) that I'm not pregnant! And her response? But u just got a ring and ur going to get married! Then a baby comes' aw, so cute!
