Time Flies When You’re Having Fun Being Pregnant :-)

by Ali on February 20, 2011

Oi.  I keep thinking I’m ready with some more crafty blogging goodness, and then life just keeps getting in the way.  Imagine that. :-)

Let’s see, where did we leave off?  28 weeks along…

And I’m 35 weeks today.  (Um, ok, that was on Friday, when I started typing this, I am not off to a great start with my crafty bloggy comeback, hehe!) Yikes, that 7 weeks felt pretty much like 7 days, kwim?

Bullet point version:

  • baby was breech for several appointments…
  • had crampy contractions start up at 31 weeks…
  • they stopped, but not before a little dilation
  • not officially put on bedrest, but told to take it easy, and be very aware of my body’s signals, and don’t wait to go in if I started feeling that again
  • oh, yeah, I did/do not have gestational diabetes!
  • baby is now measuring “normal”
  • and head down!!

Just made it through a crazy week with our Hopie back in the hospital with a nasty pneumonia and significant asthma flare-up… Oh, talk about stress on a mother’s heart… no, don’t talk about it, I’ve had enough to last for a while…

This next week, I’m hoping to do some serious nesting!  (and hopefully, some boring sitting around with healthy kids!)

What do you have on the agenda this week?

Happy knitting-
ali

I use to knit when I was a young girl and would love teaching my daughters. As a matter of fact, I just told my 11 year old girl I wanted to teach her this weekend. My mom knits too. I don't remember everything though. Can you give me some pointers please?

So true!!! I enjoyed my first few pregancies and the last I really relished. I learned how to see the beauty in them and stop complaining. I did the same thing with nursing…just embraced the moment fully!
