I survived the weekend!

23 weeks and 1 day today! The appointment Friday went well, I'm finally above my pre-pregnancy weight (initially lost 5lbs, and have gained that back plus 3lbs). Nombie had a good heartbeat at 145bpm. He's been kicking me a lot at night and in the morning, or maybe jumping? I don't really know, but it's cute.

I just got home from the baby shower. It wasn't horrible, but it was still awkward and trying. The blanket I crocheted for the baby got many Ooos and Awws, I'm glad they liked it. People tried to make small talk with me about the pregnancy and the baby... yeah.

But it's over with, and I can breath a sigh of relief. Whew.

I'm tired and I have a headache now.

Just wondering if you took a photo of the crochet blanket you made and gifted. Would love to see what it looks like. I now take photos of all my completed projects that I give away...just so I can remember more easily that I did in fact make something. With my faulty memory, thanks to fibromyalgia, photographing projects really helps.

Glad you survived the baby shower! And that the blanket gift was appreciated.

Season also grooves around 140s in the heartbeat department.

Good going, Nombie!

I'm glad everything went ok at the shower! And 6 more days and hopefully the weight on your shoulders will lighten up a little bit :0)

You should join ravelry.com (if you haven't already) it has tons of patterns and stuff. You can always find me! Shannonivy

Rebecca, I think I did. I'll try to post it next time :)

St Elsewhere, Nombie is alway around 140-145 too. Somtimes I worry that it's low, but then I try to remind myself that 130-170 is acceptable and he's just fine. So it's a good place to be!

ShannonIvy, I've never heard of that site before :D Definitely going to check it out. Thanks!

Yay for a great appointment - and for surviving the shower! :) Another week closer!

I agree - yay on 23 weeks!

And why do I feel so relieved? I didn't even have to go to the shower! But you did...and I'm awfully glad it's over. I was dreading it for you. Pretty silly since it wasn't helpful to you in the least, but that's how I felt.

Sweet little baby, stay safe and sound and grow, grow, grow.

Love,

Cathy in Missouri
