• still struck with the desire to knit for my baby — I just need to settle on a project and get the yarn
  • spending some of my many hours of nursing making plans and mental lists and getting motivated for projects around the house (and hoping this will save me some time once I get to them)

  • dealing with the paradigm change of being hit with a triple whammy of issues suddenly showing up three weeks before our due date- polyhydramnios, gestational diabetes, a breech baby
  • learning, through the power of ultrasound, that our baby has lots and lots of hair…and chubby cheeks
  • hoping for the best, preparing for every possibility
