I have been in here for 6 WHOLE weeks.  Insane.  I never thought I could sit still and do nothing for so long.  Not as easy as it sounds.  Just goes to show that you can do it if you put your mind to it.  I told Kayvan he better get me out of here soon because I am getting used to everyone doing things for me–complete opposite of my norm.

I know that having made it this long is worth celebrating but knowing I have another 6 and a half weeks to go is a bit daunting…and bittersweet.  On one hand, I’m going to have a KID in 6 weeks and that is just so awesome I can’t describe it.  On the other hand, my pregnancy is being cut short by a month and that will always bug me.  We are still preparing for the baby and let’s not forget to mention I haven’t wrapped my head around the fact that in a month and a half I am going to actually HAVE this kid.  Eek!  Not to mention all of the worry of knowing whether he will need to spend time in the NICU once he is here or not.  I am a planner, so I’m just plain not good with unknowns.  I know, I know.  That’s parenthood but It will take me a bit to change my ways.

Yesterday I finished the papoose.  It’s pretty darn cute but I’m trying to decide if it is something I will actually ever use.  I’ll classify that as a maybe for now.  It took a bit longer than I expected to crank the thing out.  It is a shell stitch combined with a front post double crochet so it took a bit more thought and counting than most stuff does.

I woke up feeling so achy this morning.  I slept pretty hard last night, thank goodness but that means I didn’t wake up to shift positions when my hips and back started to bug me.  My back was KILLING me when I woke up today.  It probably has more to do with the fact that I have been sitting in the same place for 6 weeks rather than just the way I slept.  It was so bad that I couldn’t wait until after breakfast to shower.  I took the hottest shower my skin could stand and that helped but I’m still a tad achy.  I think I’m going to need a chiropractor and a physical therapist when I get out of here.  Kayvan is working today so I’m all alone.  I have plenty to do.  There is a social hour on baby care today that I can actually go to.  That means I can get out of this stinkin room for a bit.  My cousin may also come by.

The non-stress test went well today.  My nurse sat and talked with me through most of it so the time flew.  We talked about our dogs.  She has a sweet boxer and from what she tells me he is a bit of a scardy dog.

  1. your poor hinney 😦 I couldnt sit for that long. miss ya!

  2. I’ve been following your blog and I commend you for making it to 6 weeks. I’m able to continue my life (due 4/4) as normal as can be and am going nuts being pregnant. I absolutely adore your little hats and I think you should make a temporary Etsy shop or something, you’d definitely have a following with all of us WTE Mommies. 🙂 Keep your positivity.
