Yup, Catherine's right, it's not just the Irish. Most Jewish people are the same way. My dh and I had NOTHING in preparation for the baby. Not a single item of clothing, furniture, carseat -- NADA! We don't have showers, until AFTER a baby is born. We don't even really talk about things that we'll do AFTER the baby is born. People thought that I was looney for not preparing in any way, but in all honesty, I thought it was normal.

Dh and I had walked through a few baby stores and had an idea of what we'd look for, but didn't have anything picked out or registered for. Although, a few of my friends are now "registering" for things and the store will hold it until the baby is born =)
