Im only about 8 weeks pregnant and already somebody is putting ideas in my partners head that if we buy new baby gear then its extremely bad luck. So he gets angry at how i refuse to use items his family said we can borrow. I always had new things as a child so why would i strip my child of having such basic brand new clean items that i can later put away for another child? There are constantly half price sales that end up being cheaper then 2nd hand goods which is fantastic. Someone has also put it in his head that if we move to his parents we can save for a house deposit its driving me crazy. He works with his family so he leaves home sat avo and comes home fri avo i see him barely 24hours in the week. I have the feeling his family want to be the people that are there for him and the baby but not me since im not being asked im just being told. Only my own friends and mother understand fully that i want our own home without family (except my mums help) interfering with bringing up the baby. its my first child to be born but 2nd pregnancy.
so basicly how did any of you make your partner and his family understand?
