The Yellow Room is Complete! (almost)

First, thank you SO much to all of you for your comments, thoughts, and prayers about my canceled FET. It means a lot to me to have such a wonderful support system. And you all are
right - Mr. C is a wonderful husband!

So the actual yellow room in our house is empty no more! The only thing we're missing is a rug (the one in the photos is just a little throw rug...not permanent) and pictures on the walls, which are in progress. I love the room now because it is bright and sunny and looks so cheerful. It's not depressing to walk by it anymore. It will be an easy transition to a nursery, too. We'll just add a crib and make the bureau into a changing table. Voila!

FET Update: I'm currently on L.upron, or "Loopy-ron" as I like to call it since it makes me a bit loopy. I'm also finishing up my 10 day dose of P.rovera tomorrow and am expecting AF in the next few days. When that happens, I'll start back on the E.strace and V.ivelle patches. Thanks for all the good vibes - I need them!

Here are some yellow room photos:

Oh, I love your yellow room now. Just like mine with the white molding and nearly the exact same shade of yellow. I hope we'll both be turning them into nurseries in the VERY near future! :)

Beautiful, can you come and decorate my house! I was sorry to read about your FET, but glad to hear that things are on their way again. Things seem to move so quickly once the hormones start - or maybe that is just in our heads :-)

The room looks great! Good job decorating and I'm glad to hear that it's not depressing to walk past anymore. It will transition wonderfully into a nursery.

Kelly, I'm just finding you through Chelle but the yellow room is JUST GORGEOUS! You have marvelous taste. I'll have to post some pics of my kiddo room. It is yellow as well. :) We have a few changes to make as well and it will be ready for a kiddo. Now if I can just get through this FET! I know you are thinking the same and I'm going to add you to my prayer list. I pray for your peace and that you have a brand new person to inhabit your home, very very soon!

Hello-
I have a similar story about a room in our house. We bought a house with 4 bedrooms thinking we would fill them all. There was one that deemed "the nursery." We painted all the other rooms and left that one its dingy brown color. After three years I finally painted the room yellow (and I am not a yellow person) and made it into a guest room. I was finally glad to give that room another label and move on. Afterwards it did get turned into a child's room for our toddler son from Korea. I painted it navy blue.
I am also writing to tell you that
I am an adoptive mom who underwent infertility treatments for over four years. We just brought our son home from Korea last June and are very happy to be parents.
I started a non profit called Parenthood for Me- www.parenthoodforme.org

Our mission is to provide financial and emotional support to those starting families through adoption or medical intervention.
