I am happy today....I almost forgot the feeling

Here is another fun belly picture. The flowers had little bugs crawling all over them so they didn't stay on the belly for very long. I am trying to put together nice photos for Piccadilly for when she gets older. Due to the difficulties we have gone through, this is most likely going to be our only pregnancy. So might as well make the best of it and have as much fun as we can.

I woke up in a good mood this morning. That has not happened for months and months on end. Everyday, there has always been something to promptly put me in a bad mood ...but that is not for this post.
Yesterday at my weekly fetal medicine appointment I discovered that Piccadilly is all caught up in growth! She had been about a month behind in size and weight. But, since I have been able to keep food down and have even had a bit of an appetite she has gone through a growth spurt...isn't that fantastic?
I am still on "light duty", no matter how much I beg the docs every week, I am still not allowed to even go for walks yet. Doc says maybe after 32 weeks if everything looks good then I can start doing more activity. Being such an active person this whole pregnancy has been sheer torture. But at least I am not on bed rest anymore...thanks to our merciful God in Heaven!!!

The other thing that has lifted my spirits is that I finally solved my computer problems by making a browser switch over to Firefox. Some of you have gotten comments on your blogs today because of that switch. I am still working my way down the list to catch up on other blogs.
You see, for the last year, visiting blogs has made my computer crash. Sometimes I would get to three blogs before my computer crashed but lately it has taken only one blog to frustrate the goob out of me.
That is why I had nearly given up on reading blogs altogether, it was way too much trouble...oh and plus there was the whole being sick thing too.
Anyway, I have had a lovely morning catching up (still more to go), so I feel like I am "back in the game baby"!
I hope tomorrow is the same....can you imagine two good days in a row?!!?!? It's almost too much to hope for.

I wanted to mention a few more things about the "Barnyard" project. Each element was sewn on with invisible thread, and the background is flannel. Just in case anyone was curious.

Also, I wanted to show a close up of "DIABLO" tatted up. This is what was used to tat the barn. It is hard to tell by the photos but this colorway is actually a variegated red colorway. Three different reds to be exact. It is subtle but definitely adds a layer of interest.

Hoping the rest of my day and yours is great!!!!

I'm thrilled that you are starting to feel better. I know what you mean about the blogs acting up & having computer problems too.
Your belly pictures are amazing so you can share them with Piccadilly as well as us now. Just think when she's checking her toes & you are able to see your's after she is born..your husband can take a picture of both of you enjoying seeing your toes to add to the photos. LOL! Can't forget that one too.
Just take it easy for now. Piccadilly will have you hopping later. She's growing beautifully right now. That's great news too! That's due to mommy is following doctor's orders so well. YAH!!!

I am sooooooo happy to hear you are feeling better!!!!! You likely don`t know the number of times I think about how you are feeling and how you are making out!!! You have made the bad day I was having, much better. Thanks Kelly

Miranda said...

I'm always so glad to hear when you have a good day. Here's hoping for two in a row!

Diablo is high on my list on new HDT's I want!

Marty said...

Glad to hear Picadilly is all caught up -- way to go! Sounds like things are taking an upturn both baby- and computer-wise. Congrats on the switch over to Firefox, too. It's my favorite browser.

I'm glad you and Picadilly are doing so well! I'm also happy that you figured out a way around your computer problem!

So glad your feeling better, even if it's only sometimes. We can tell by the happy tummy picture you're having some good days. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful memory book for Piccadilly.

Love the "Diablo". The color changes are subtle and keeps it from looking 'flat'.

Gina said...

I wondered what you had changed to be able to comment. I've never had a problem with IE but I know lots of people do use Firefox. Glad to hear you're having a good day and the little one is catching up in growth. Life can be very very sweet at times1

Oh Yippee, I'm happy for you.

Thank you for the barnyard answers. Those were the 2 questions on my mind. You must have read our minds.

Cindy said...

Happy Dance! Happy Dance! Here's to more and more "feel good" days!

Val said...

it's great to hear you are in good "shape" (mod included) :)) many more good days.


Leanna said...

You rock, Sweetie!
We hope our Little Miss Picadilly is exactly like her Momma, in the creative sense!!! Here you are, enjoying yourself again...what a Blessing!!

Bonnie said...

I am so happy you are feeling better.

Cute belly picture

Kelly said...

thanks for stopping by and making a comment.

Also, more important, I'm so happy for you and Piccadilly that she is caught up in her growth and that you are feeling better. I've been very worried for your little family!

Your Diablo red is lovely, you are right the color changes are VERY subtle, I had to enlarge the picture to see them. It is beautiful thread.

Keep feeling better!

Hi Sherry, blessings for your good day.
Firefox is a much better browser and I like Foxit for a pdf reader much better then adobe.
one thing I learned, the first preg is always harder then the next. sort of like your body says "oh, now I know how to do this" and each one gets easier (I know, I did it 7 times)
glad you are feeling so much better, prayers that it continues day by day.
your tatting farm scene is great, even if you feel it could use a few more items. Bet it gets a really good award.

Congratulations to both you and Picadilly! Lots of good news here. May tomorrow be as good or better than today.

Hi Sherry,

I have to agree with Fox. As I started reading your blog, I could feel the happiness creeping from my belly on up to my face, and the next thing I noticed was that I was smiling (still am).

I'm so glad to hear that Picadilly has grown!

I was one of the lucky winners (I got a golden ticket) LOL... thanks for the blog comment!

About your Diablo red.. I can see the 3 different colors.. I like it, mucho = alot... Red is my favorite

Take care,
