Working on stuff-

32 weeks today!

Things looked pretty good at our appointment yesterday, besides gaining a lot more weight than I should have in 2 weeks. I blame all the cake... delicious, yummy, cake. Mmm. We're waiting on my thyroid results to make sure my dose is still good, I also bit the bullet and got the flu shot (for the first time ever). I talked to my OB about the abdominal pain I started having two days ago, really intense stabbing/bruised feeling near my belly button- she thinks it's probably just round ligament pains, and suggested I take it easy over the weekend and see if that helps. If it doesn't, I can give them a call back Monday. I've been really lazy since then, and it hasn't been bothering me as much... so let's hope it stays that way.

I've been working on a blanket for Nombie for months now. Since I'm taking it easy, I finished it up last night. I think it turned out alright, it looks nicer in real life than in the photos... I really need to learn how to take better crochet photos haha.

This blanket is the first/only one I've actually made specifically for Nombie. I made other blankets for my "someday child" out of hope. While they are special in their own way, this one is even more meaningful for me because I actually made it just for him. No matter what happens, this blanket will always be his. I don't know how to articulate just how scary and amazing that is.

You can kind of see the nursery in the background... it's a real mess right now. I kind of just threw everything in there for now. We'll start setting it up later this month after we get a dresser for in there. But for now= chaos.

Gorgeous belly!

Has your doc asked you to sleep on a specific side - the left side and all that?

The blanket has come out well. I guess your someday child blankets will also now become Nombie blankets. I really like the fact that you can crochet - just another skill I am hopeless at.

You take care!

That nursery needs organizing, lady! said...

The blankets look amazing!! Love that round, perfect belly :) I gained 12#s the month of November last year :)

You look beautiful and so do the blankets. Right now I'm knitting a blanket just because I have a lot of yarn about and want to stay sane. 2week wait is killing me.

Have fun getting the nursery together.
