Yeah, I wouldn't get anything yet, but that's just me. I am kind of superstitious myself after losing our first baby. The only things I would make sure you have are a car seat and a sleeping arrangement for when little one comes home. You really don't need clothes while in the hospital because most of the time with all the wires and stuff it's more burdensome. I would say just go with the flow and take it easy.

I don't. My daughter was weeks away from clothes when she passed. This pregnancy, I prepared by getting everything I could possibly need to make pumping easier if I have another preemie. I have enough pump sets to wash once a day, spare parts, bustier, back-up pump, iPhone app, sterilizer, and a good lactation consultant.

With all thats going on I want to start looking at premie clothing but not sure I should. Someone said if I start preparing for a premie I am asking for that to happen. I do know I will deliver early and only want to be prepared...I am 27/2 now and I am afraid of not being prepared since we are currently taking one day at a time, and each day I keep her inside is a blessing...

So far we havent gotten any....
