Black Friday 40 weeks pregnant Mommy of two (: 2 kids; Killeen, Texas 600 posts

Call me crazy but I am what most people would call a shopaholic.. I religiously go Black Friday shopping every year. This year I'll be due 3 days after Black Friday but I desperately want to go. Nowhere too crazy just walmart and target. Should I go, of course someone will go with me in case my water breaks or anything or just opt for Cyber Monday? :P

I've never experienced any of that :P No way in hell I'm going to a big city or Toys R Us. Toys R Us and Best Buy are typically the more "violent" places in my town.

I'd go. Well... I wouldn't go, but I hate black Friday and crowds. If you like it , go. Maybe it'll bring on labor.

I personally wouldn't. I don't do Black Friday shopping normally though just because I can barely handle the crowds during the rest of the year.

Black Friday is f**king dumb. You can get the same sales online the same day. Just stay home and order online... all you need is to go in labor in a store with 400 + people in it.. LOL

can you do online shopping? ..... If you feel up to it Id say go but dont ignore your body just for the sake of shopping.

That was kind of my strategy :) aside from the finishing christmas shopping I'll need to get done.

I've done Black Friday online and waiting for the stuff to get to you before Christmas is ridiculous. I've ordered things online on Black Friday, didn't get them until the first week of January -_____-



It'll make for a good story to tell the baby and everyone else :)

I live in a big city and Black Friday is calmer here vs Killeen because we have more than one Walmart or Target in our town. Where I live I would go but I wouldn't hit up any super centers. You never know what the crowd will be like each year so I wouldn't risk going and getting trampled by some psycho trying to get a $3 Barbie.

Id order online or go later in the day. I mentioned going and one of my friends told me i should make a shirt that says something like "dont hit me, im pregnant" or something like that lol. Ive never actually been to the store during the Madness.
