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!!!!
