Well, I’m alive and kicking. The baby is doing little flutters that don’t really feel like anything beyond gas, but that’s another story…..lol.
I have not been sewing, but have managed to get in a little knitting here and there. I am working on the Hooded Cardigan from the More Kisses! book by Sirdar Spinning Ltd. I am using the suggested yarn, Snuggly Kisses DK. I have 6 1/2 inches to go on the back. That’s pretty pathetic for a child’s cardigan, but that’s all I have folks.
In pregger news, I am 24 weeks along with 3 ½ month to go. I have already gained 20 pounds and have been told by my Midwife to slow things down if I am going to keep my weight gain at a total of 30 pounds. Mmmhhph! I can’t help it if this baby likes hot dogs! Seriously, I CAN’T. lol. What I can help, though is no more fast food lunches. Since my appointment on the 5th, I have managed to stop going out to eat. If the baby needs hot dogs, it is 100% all beef kosher dogs by Hebrew Nations. Ya’ll get the idea. I am making all of my meals at home, no matter how big that ends up being. This is a large improvement from Wienerschnitzel or McDonalds at least. In addition, I am walking for 30-40 minutes during my lunch time 4 days a week and also swimming laps at my pool one day on the weekends. With this new schedule, I have actually dropped a pants size while my belly keeps growing. Just what the Doctor ordered.
Speaking of food, my old roomie Brandi made me a delicious dinner on Saturday, homemade soup, beans, and patacones. She even packed me soup to go that I paired with my shrimp salad for lunch today. Mmmmmm. Thanks Brandi – this baby and my tummy in general appreciate the royal treatment.
I purchased a new dining room table a week or so ago, so my house is now complete (minus baby redesign in the near future). Here's a pic of how it looks.
