@NCSUchick27:  I don’t see anything wrong with it. I’ve debated on creating a (ugh) Pinterest board for baby stuff necessities should the opportunity arise. πŸ™‚

I love browsing baby stuff when I am out shopping (haven’t browsed online yet but I am sure I will!) and Fiance and I are nowhere near the TTC stage. Probably in about 5 years, but I still love looking!

Ugh, me too.  I love looking at knitting patterns for baby things.  I tried casting on a baby hat once “for charity”, but it made me too sad, so I stopped.

The thing is, I’m ready now, but Darling Husband wants to get all his ducks in a row first.  And, man, those ducks do NOT want to line up.  It sucks πŸ™

Ha, you are for sure not alone πŸ™‚ If you want some proof, just head over to the Waiting to TTC thread, there are plenty of us there who aren’t quite close yet!  http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/waiting-to-ttc-chat-part-3#axzz2R75OSAuB

 

For me, I’m not a few years away (hopefully only 6-7 months), but I’ve been checking out baby stuff for a while.  I have two private boards on Pinterest, one for products and nursery ideas I like, and one for links to good info about pregnancy, birth, and babies.  Especially if you tend to be a planner, I think it’s totally normal to start looking into this stuff even when you aren’t really even close to trying for a baby.

Guilty! We’re getting married this summer and probably won’t start TTC for another year at least, but we do know that we want a baby and I can’t help but see cute little baby clothes at the store and daydream πŸ™‚ I don’t think there’s anything wrong with looking forward to it.

Oh I have been doing this for quite some time. We are finally coming up on being close to TTC, only 2-4 months away!!  I have been to two huge consignment sales, have multiple private and public pinterest boards and have even bought clothes, a moby wrap,books, bebepod seat, and bath towels…..  At this rate I wont have anything to do when I actually get pregnant!  So you are definately not alone!!

This is totally me. Only I’ve pinned baby stuff since I was about 18. I’m looking forward to having kids and I have baby fever a lot. He’s about to graduate as a music teacher and I’m going into music and children’s ministry so we both can’t wait to have kids, but we’re need to wait 2-3 years so we can pay off student loans and help his brother with college. To curb waiting I already have a little girl outfit and a little boy outfit in the back of my closet.
