30 Day Challenge- Day 31

31 05 2012

Wait, what? Day 31? Isn’t this a 30 Day Challenge?

Yes, I just finished the entire 30 Day Challenge, and now I want to challenge YOU to do it. Here is my original post, about the challenge. You can see all my posts about the challenge here. If you decide to participate, please come let me know and I will come on over to your blog to learn more about you during the challenge.

I had a lot of fun with this challenge. I was able to pre-write a lot of the answers, and set up publishing in advance to make sure I got these posts up each day. But most of all- it got me wanting to blog more often. I wanted to jump in and write more posts, just because. It made me look at what I had blogged in the past, and I came up with several posts for the future as well thanks to the challenge. I’d love to do another series of these posts in the future, and hope someone else does this as well.

DAY 30:  After a month of infertility talk, we need a distraction.  Give us a link to one of your favorite non-infertility-sites, or tell us about your favorite distraction activity/book/feel-good movie.

Uhm, some of my favorite non-IF sites:

MWOP- MckMama WithOut Pity

Young House Love

Our Humble Abowed



These are all on my daily roster of places to visit.

Day 29:  What is your favorite book?

This is my least favorite question in the WORLD. Seriously. I love books, am constantly reading, so it’s hard to pick one.

I love Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan novels, JD Robb’s In Death series, Fern Michael’s Sisterhood series, and almost anything Nora Roberts. Not to mention, Harry Potter.

DAY 28:  Have you ever done something “non-traditional” in order to help you conceive?

Nothing too non-traditional. We tried a couple cycles of soy is.oflavones, and I got a tar.ot card reading done a couple times, but otherwise our biggest ‘non-traditional’ thing is donor sperm.

DAY 27:  What do you use the “nursery” for right now?

Right now, the room that could possibly be the nursery, is my office. Someone’s gotta use it. Might as well be me.

30 Day Challenge- Day 25

25 05 2012

DAY 25:  What was your first baby or pregnancy-related purchase you ever made?  Was it before or after you started trying to conceive?  Or was it after you were already pregnant?  Why did you choose that particular item to buy first?  If you haven’t purchased anything yet, why not?

The first thing I purchased, other than prenatal vitamins, was two onesies last fall to tell X we were expecting. I have very little in the way of a baby stash, and most was given to me. I’ve bought those two onesies, and lately added in a M.oby wr.ap and a go.ga.ga sli.de diaper bag(both bought at a steep discount used). I won’t buy anything in the future until after a good ultrasound, and even then it will probably be closer to 24 weeks before I shop. I just don’t want that stuff sitting around and torturing me.
