As reality sets in, each day is a step closer to having the family I've dreamt of, and a step further from the dark cloud of infertility that has been hovering over my life for the last couple of years. This blog has been and continues to be an amazing place to share my experiences and connect with other people who have been or are in similar situations.

Nursery colours :)
In two more days, I will officially be considered out of 1rst tri. To celebrate, I'm starting to think about how I want to decorate the nursery. We're not going to start decorating it until we find out what we're having, but I have at least a colour palette in mind.
I don't like the traditional all pink for girls, all blue for boys sort of thing, so I figured I would keep in pink or blue, but in a minimal way.
For a boy, this is what I'm thinking:
So there's still blue, but the main colours of the room would be the green and brown, and the accent colour would be the blue. The furniture would be white, the walls would be brown on the bottom, green on top, or brown/white... or just one brown accent wall or something... then any little accents would be blue. :)
For a girl, it's pretty much the same, but incorporating the pink as the accent colour:
I can't wait to find out what we're having, but in the meantime, since my colour palettes are so similar, we'll start to buy some of the furniture, and leave the painting/bedding and anything gender specific until we know the gender. :)
To give some idea of how I'd bring it all together, it would be something like this (then add in some blue or pink items - blankets, toys, picture frames - later when we find out the gender): (this is an image from google)
