So we are playing the waiting game and I have to admit to not doing it very well. I am crampy, not walking around well, and just testy today. I think the rain and greyness is not helping the situation. I decided to work from home today because the thought of getting dressed up and limping around to get to the bathroom as well as the long walks around the building just had no charm for me.
We had an ultrasound for size on Tuesday and they estimate baby J is about 8 lbs 13 oz right now-though they can be off by as much as 10% with the late term ultrasounds so he might be smaller...or bigger. He was head down at least but free floating and apparently happy as a clam to stay in there. I have to say, ultrasounds of babies at this point look really weird. Josh said he looked like Slimer from Ghostbusters but they told us he was smooshing up his own face and he was perfectly fine. I do admit I had a nightmare that night about taking a dose of cold medicine before realizing it had an ingredient in it I wasn't supposed to take and that I was so sad I made our baby not cute. Pregnancy hormones are weird! So anyway, the doctor said for now we wait and recheck on Tuesday to see if there is any dilating at all and if so we can help things along. Otherwise, we are looking at a scheduled induction on May 5th at the latest.
Anyway, as I said I'm cranky about it-so on to better subjects! We had a visit from Grandpa Kevin and Maegwin had a blast! She helped with cleaning in anticipation of his arrival:
The ladies in my Ravelry group Itty Bitty Knits got together and organized a virtual baby shower and gifts have been arriving here and there in the mail. It's so fun to see them and I am blown away by the generosity and creativity of the group. They are all so sweet!
I've also finished up some knitting lately. For my friend Mary I made a pair of socks to thank her for letting me use her maternity clothes. That was so amazing of her and I'd have had to spend so much to make up for donating mine without her generosity.
I also did a pair of socks for Maegwin. They were going to be pink and purple but she insisted they needed yellow also.
Another item I finished was this shawl for my swap partner in the Rainbow theme swap from my Itty Bitty Knits group.
My last item I finished this morning at about 4:30 am. Not sleeping well-again the crankiness...
