My husband's family is of a different culture and they strongly believe that it is bad luck to for the parent's to be to purchase anything for the baby before baby arrives. They believe that it is perfectly fine to receive gifts but my DH and I just can't buy anything ourselves. I know this is quite different than the norm here in the US.
I admit I was really disappointed when I found this out. I wanted to plan and organize and have everything ready to go before LO gets here but I'm trying not to stress too much about it. DH has been great about it and told me he would go to the store with a checklist while I'm in the hospital if he needs to and he will have everything put together before LO and I come home.
I was wondering, is anyone else doing the same thing and waiting to get anything for the baby? If so, how are you coping?
