Our Nursery

Our beautiful nursery is finished just in time for our first insemination. In it is our biggest splurge to date. The comfiest, most expensive glider and ottoman in the universe. When Trina's tookus first hit the cushion, she knew it was THE glider. Then we looked at the price tag. EEK! We sat in every glider and rocker we came across for months trying to talk ourselves out of it, but it was no use. THE glider was prettier, THE glider reclined, THE glider had lumbar support, THE glider matched the wood in the room perfectly. Thanks to my father, stepmother and a few friends giving us Babies R Us giftcards for various holidays, we were able to go and order THE glider. I've been told that THE glider will pay for itself in the first few months. When sitting up all night trying to comfort a fussy baby, it's reclinability and sheer comfiness will ALMOST make life bearable. Here's hoping.

On a related note, tomorrow or possibly the next day will be CD1. The feelings of anticipation are nearly overwhelming. We've decided that we're going to go ahead and get pregnant on the first try. I know that for some, it takes months, even years, but not for us. We have a plan and we're sticking to it. I've had a talk with Trina's ovaries, uterus and a ton of various girlie tubes and passageways. I feel confident that we're all on the same page. I plan to have a similar conversation with our donor sperm. A pep rally, if you will, for the little swimmers. I know, I know, there are many of you reading this right now shaking your heads thinking I'm nuts (or worse) but I feel that if we all work together and have a positive attitude we can make this happen. Go team! :)

Your not nuts, your going to get pregnant the first time just like us :-) Your nursery is so stunning, we will have to take photos of ours and post them on here too. Thinking of you guys, keep in touch. Keep those blogs coming.

Wow, I love the room. It's different from what I've seen of other nurseries and I love it. It's mature and stylish and calming instead of the usual pink or blue overload with shelves of stuffed animals (okay, not that there's anything wrong with that). Anyway, great job! I love and admire your enthusiasm. I'm on board with the "it will happen the first time" mentality too. Our therapist (in our mandated counselling session) yesterday told us that was a healthy way of thinking.

Wow! It looks like you perfectly attained the peaceful nursery you were seeking. Kahlo and I cannot wait to come over so you can entertain her elsewhere while I break-in your new glider!

Yay for being on the same page! Love the pep talks - that's one of my jobs too.

Fingers crossed and lots of positive thoughts coming your way for a first time positive.

Oh, and hi :)

Hi there! I just stumbled across your blog and wanted to welcome you on the TTC/blog roller coaster. :o)

We wish you lots of first timers luck. It CAN happen. It did for us..we just seem to have a problem with getting them to stick. We're going for lucky try #4 hopefully within the next few days.

Love the nursery! And the positive attitude!

The nursery looks perfect the natural looking wood and the organic feel makes it inviting and relaxing, great job. THE glider just fits right in as well. I hope it is every thing you cracked it up to be :)

The pep talks really do help or atleast we will soon find out. I am wishing you and trina the best.
