The nursery that I want is pretty much the same whether it's a girl or a boy, with just a few different bits. I want grey walls- prob sounds really dull but I've seen it before and it looks lovely. I want all accessories in bright colours like green, yellow, orange, turquoise and pink etc, and the grey walls give a great background to make them stand out. I want a white cot and furniture, which I've pretty much picked out already, and then the theme is going to be 'wise owls and love birds'!
I want a massive wall decal for the main feature wall, with a white tree with multicoloured owls and birds. Will do a really swirly type tree if it's a girl, and a more simple one if it's a boy. There is some blue and orange owl bedding I like in Dunelm, although I'm sure it won't be there by the time I need it! For a girl I've seen a toddler duvet set with owls which I'd sew into a smaller cot set.
On another wall I want lots of multicoloured picture frames with baby picturess of me and OH, nanas and grandads, aunties and uncles etc, which will surround pictures of scan & bump, and a baby pic when it's born....
I also want a multi coloured chandelier for the light fitting, absolutely love them.
Hi all, I've just read the entire thread and thought I'd join as I'll be finishing my pill in 6 days and will be NTNP from then on! I am so excited that me and hubby are finally ready for a baby. We've been together for 7 years and married for 3 months. We're both 23 years old and can't wait to actually start trying!
I get so excited when baby adverts come on the tv, and it's taking a lot of self control to not start buying things already!!
I'm not sure what birth control you're all using but I'm on cerazette and I've heard that coming off that is a bit traumatic (I have everything crossed that it won't be!) but thought it would be nice to share our experiences!
Welcome Elz!! That's great I'm 23 in October. It's soo exciting isn't it?! I've found coming off Yasmin quite smooth (been on and off it for 5 years) my period has been much heavier this month and I've been very very moody and snappy - eek. I've been working out some dates and we'll probably try to avoid getting PG in September but really go for it in October. If we conceive in October it would be perfect I'm estimated to ovulate on Oct 22nd, giving a due date of early July 2012 Not that I'm looking too much into it or anything
Mazndave that sounds gorgeous!! I picture that in my head and it looks beautiful - really unique theme too.
For a girl I want pale pink walls, with a large pink tree decal on one wall as the main feature, and smaller pink butterflies and flowers on the other 3 walls, not many. I want a white cot-bed, white chest of drawers and wardrobe, a white toy chest with cut out hearts in it. Lots of pink and white photo frames, a pink chandelier, pink curtains and rug. I've seen bedding I like on Vertbaudet which sounds similar to yours I think - white with pink flowers, owls etc.
For a boy I want pale blue walls with his name in big wooden lettering on one wall as main feature. Blue gingham curtains, blue and white polka dot bedding, light-shade etc.. a big white fur rug, white furniture again.. Basically the same but lots of baby blue accents instead of pink.
Oh I hope it happens for us all in October (or before!) I say I want to go with the flow - but when I really think about it, I want it right now
Hi Elz, sounds like your definitely on the sam page as the rest of us, the more the merrier! I'm on Cilest and have 9 pills to go! I too am sooo excited to be actually starting to NTNP soon and so is hubby, he gets all coey over tv ads which is lovely!
I've been to dctrs this morning re pre pregnancy testing as some magazine mentioned it (I keep buying mags as my excuse for not buying baby bits,
See them as a pre baby education , he he). He has referred me for some bloods, just basic ones like urea, electrolytes, creatine, liver function, thyroid and b12 and folate so would recommend definitely asking your GP, also checking immunisation levels for rebella
Thanks for the warm welcome
I haven't had a period since I've been on cerazette (Jan '09) so it's going to be a bit strange to start with, but I can't wait! I don't really mind when we conceive, but it would be nice to have a summer baby! Fingers and toes crossed!!
Welcome Elz! I've been on bcp for nearly 11 years now, so quite worried about how long my body will take to get back to normal after stopping. Just keeping our fingers crossed that everything goes to plan and there aren't too many hurdles to have to get over.
Iím glad you donít think my nursery idea sounds hideous! I can picture it all in my head and it looks great in there, so hopefully it will look just as good in real life. No offence to anyone, but I love colour and design in a room, so the thought of a cream and beige colour scheme really bores me! MissBroody, your ideas sound lush too, so pretty and perfect for a baby. I love planning what itís going to look like, so exciting! Canít wait to get started.
Keep thinking how good it would be if I was pregnant now as could have the gender scan in time for the January sales and pick up lots of / bargains! I know itís the right thing to do to wait though Ė hubby is self employed so we need to save as much as we can beforehand so that we still have enough money if he had a bad month. Got my sensible head on, even though my broody head is screaming, NOW NOW!!
Iíve seen quite a few bits on Vertbaudet that I like, got some nice things that are a bit different to other baby shops. Had a voucher code through for £15 off a £20 spend as well, so was very tempted to buy something! MUST.CONTROL.MYSELF.
Ooh, I also saw a gorgeous bright pink sleeping bag yesterday at a local boutique, with a multicoloured owl and Ďtwit twooí on it, I wanted it so badly! I couldnít do it though as I know if I bought something pink Iíll be tempting fate and weíll have a boy, and Iíll have wasted my money. Wonít be there anymore when Iím ready to buy itÖ..
Blimey, I donít half ramble on donít I?! This is because of us keeping it a secret so I have no one else to talk to about stuff yet. I bet poor hubby is sick to death of hearing about it all! Heís def excited about a baby, but I donít think heís really that interested about which exact shade of grey would look best for the walls, before weíre even expecting lol!
Yay, everyone's ideas sound amazing. I really enjoy the owl themed room with grey walls and bright colors-really neat! Tree ideas are fun too, and family photos everywhere. I love butterflies for a girl as well! I haven't really thought of details like you gal's, besides how to position the new furniture. I do know I want a dark wooden baby crib, and a beautiful, cozy rocking chair for rocking my baby to sleep. I can't wait to sing to my baby in that chair =). I also want babies name on the wall-i like the wooden lettering idea for a boy like one of you mentioned. I also love the new decals you can buy that stick on the wall but can come off-I would use those for a girl. I love teddy bears, so maybe a teddy/stuffed animal theme for a boy sounds nice.
As for BC, I'm on Ortho Tri Cyclen Low. I have been on it for about 5 years now-will let you know how going off it feels like!
Can I join you please? Hubby and I are trying for our second baby mid sept. We have a 20 mth old son and would like children quite close in age. With our 1st born I'd been on BC for 10 yes, I came off BC in sept, started trying in feb and fell pregnant in the march on my 2nd cycle. I'm hoping it will be quick again this time but you
