I'm still here, still very much "expecting"! It was a busy week; work has not let up and I still seem pushed by some internal energy to GET STUFF DONE at home, so was not resting or relaxing very much. I've gotten a stern talking-to by my midwife and others... my blood pressure was creeping up and my legs are a fright; very swollen.
So. Time to rest. And drink more water, eat more protein, and other good nutritional/herbal things. The last BP check on Friday showed a much better reading. I'm letting go of many things on my list, taking it easy this weekend.
That means testing out the new glider, and finally finishing the VERY FIRST sweater I have ever knit. Schroeder was happy to help anchor me while I sat. I am not a prolific knitter, and thought a baby sweater would be good start. 4 months later, it's finished! And cute... It was a good, simple pattern that made me practice a few things I've never really done; seaming, button holes, more increases and decreases. A good project.
And in a nod to "Grandma's" interest in Beatrix Potter, a Peter Rabbit button...
So, one more thing done before baby... he or she could come at any time. Due date is still a few days away... we'll try to update to keep you posted! Feeling good, trying to fathom this new adventure. Wish us luck!
