i keep meaning to post


I really do.

On Sunday Yannick and I went to pick up the last registry stuff still sitting waiting for us, then popped in at the Wool Shop so I could buy a new 3.25mm needle. Don’t ask about the 2 hour search around the house I did on Friday night, nor the 1 hour research by Yannick Sunday morning. It’s gone. An addi too. 😦 While at that mall I bought some pom poms at Ted’s Hobby Store so I could finally finish the Froggy Hat/Booties set, and looked around for some large black buttons to use as eyes on the Just Ducky hat. (Come to think of it…I’m not sure why I didn’t go back into the Wool Shop where they sell TONS of buttons…but it doesn’t matter now. Pregnancy brain I guess!) They didn’t have the right kind of buttons at all. I passed the googly-eyes section thinking wistfully of the packages I have at home, and regretting that I couldn’t use them because I didn’t want to hot-glue the hat. That’s when I noticed the fine print on the packages. They were sew-on googly-eyes!! Woo hoo! We stopped briefly at Yannick’s cousins’s house to drop off the pink sweater and booties I’d knit for their daughter, then he dropped me off at home so he could go to my parents’ house for a poker game my dad had organized. The first thing I did was finish the hat/bootie sets. I was all set to take some photos and post right away but the batteries in my camera died. So that was it for blogging on Sunday.

I was going to blog on Monday and show some pics of the hats and the new cardigan I’ve been knitting for the baby using sock yarn. But I had a really crappy doctor’s appointment early in the morning* and was no longer in the mood for anything. I literally holed up in bed with some knitting, a tea and a bunch of pillows. Sucky day. I was even supposed to go out with Yannick that night but by 6:00pm had such a headache and was so out of it that we ordered in some supper and I crashed. Then his parents came over to spend the night in our guest room, so long story short I didn’t blog.

Yesterday I was going to post some photos after work but once I’d forced down some dinner all I wanted to do was veg and knit. Then I took a very lazy bubble bath with some vanilla incense (drove our cat insane trying to catch the smoke and eat the bubbles) and ignored the world for a while.

Tonight we’re going out for those plans we were supposed to do Monday (dinner and maybe a movie) and I didn’t know if I’d get a chance to blog later so I’m posting now. I hate photo-less posts and I know I keep doing more and more of them, but if it weren’t for the occassional posting from work I’d be really boring, so bear with me and know that photos are coming soon!

And to all the people who have been signing up at the Yahoo group- cool, and hi! I see a lot of email addresses that I don’t recognize from commenters, so either a lot of you are lurkers or people who joined up after being told about the pattern from someone else. In either case, welcome! Glad to have you!

*Nothing wrong with the baby, or me. Everything’s fine. But we weren’t able to find the heartbeat again and rather than try to reassure us or anything the doctor was very rude and abrupt to me, gave me shit for calling him with my questions (I’ve called 3 times in 3.5 months!)and was just generally unpleasant.

  1. Be careful with the bath during pregnancy. If you have the water too hot, you can hurt the baby because if the water is too hot, you get overheated and that increases your heart rate, reduces blood flow to the fetus, and potentially puts the baby under stress.


  2. It sounds like you’ve had a sucky week. Hopefully it will get better soon. All the baby clothes sound very cute!


  3. I’m sorry you had a crappy weekend. My personal opinion would be “find another doctor,” but that’s just me. 🙂
