Quick Update on Patchwork and Piccadilly
This is how far I am on Jane's patchwork project....still a long way to go!
...and this is my Piccadilly update; I am just 34 weeks now and still cook'n. It is a miracle that we have gotten this far after everything we have gone through and I am sooooo grateful! It has to be the power of prayer! Now that we are this far a lot of pressure and anxiety is lifted. I know that even if she is born tomorrow, her chances are very good to be a normal healthy baby.
Yesterday was my big weekly ultra-sound/check up and there was good news and not so super news. We will start with the good news first; Piccadilly is healthy and on target for weight....YAY!!! ...and that is really all that matters.
The not so good news is mainly pertaining to myself and my health. I have faithfully been on bed rest. My husband was away on temporary duty for awhile so I had some wonderful house guests alternating on and off. It was nice to have company and help around the house. However, someone gave me the extra gift of a virus and I have been sick with flu-like symptoms the last few days and I have lost yet even more weight. I cannot begin to tell you how tired I am of throwing up dog-gone-it!
Also, my contractions are progressively stronger and more painful so I am completely exhausted all the time. I have mostly been sleeping a lot...(please no comments on how I should enjoy this sleep before the baby comes. As true and obvious as that may be...I am tiring of hearing it.)
....anyway back to the doc appt; after all the checks I was told that baby is basically ready to be born any time now. WOW! So we are playing the waiting game. She is about 4 and 1/2 pounds now...so I would really like her to gain at least another pound or so. Hopefully all this throwing up and stuff will subside so we can work on that!
In my next post I hope to share the wonderful "Shower in a box" that Lace-Lovin Librarian sent and how I met a nurse who has an almost identical pregnancy story to my own.
Ta for now!
