Bored

No baby yet. I don't have an early bird, the bun is still in the oven and the little butterball is still getting roasted. We had a really nice Thanksgiving at my folks, though it was different - Nana was missed, Virginia was there and the in-laws didn't stay too long (my MIL had an accident earlier in the week and was not feeling well).

I should be taking advantage of these last few quiet days I suppose. BUT. I'm tired of reading. I'm not really feeling the knitting groove as much as I would like. I'm anxious about the baby. Mom is coming with me to my appointment tomorrow where they'll monitor the baby's heartbeat and movement and fluid levels. Hopefully we'll hear that everything is still fine and all, but still - I'm getting impatient and frustrated and anxious. Given that I have the time during the day of course my imagination gets away from me. And while our friends are well intentioned in calling to check in on us (even Dan's college roomates are calling to find out!) and my mom is calling to check on me I wish I had something better to tell them than "Nope, sorry, no baby yet." My brother and girlfriend were woken up by a phone call at 3am thinking it would be us with good news, but it was just someone yelling at them in Chinese. And that person knew nothing about a baby. Sheesh.

I cast on and finished a pair of hand / wrist warmers (from Last Minute Knitted Gifts) for my grandmother - her name is Veronica and that is the name of the yarn colorway. I don't know if she'll actually wear them, but maybe as glove liners? I think that I can make a second pair from the first skein and then give them to my mom - not sure if she would wear them either, but I am pretty sure she would appreciate the knitted gift in a pretty colorway that shares the name with her mom. The yarn is "Harrisville Silk & Wool" - it's a bit uneven in texture, but on the whole I like it.

Babies do have a mind of their own don't they?

great looking hand warmers.

Hopefully your next post will be about your beautiful new baby. Good luck, I hope you wont have to wait much longer.

Hang in there and try not to be too anxious. I'm sure you've heard that being nervous can actually hinder the labor process. So, bundle up and go for a long walk, or take a nice warm bath and relax! You're becoming a mother and baby will be here before you know it. Enjoy the process. :-)

We'll all wait patiently for baby to arrive. I can't wait to see "it" soon :) Yay BABY :)

Just think of the wonderful stories you will have to tell baby about all of the people that awaited her (alright I won't jinx it) or his arrival. Baby Huben is arriving to so much love, and the anticipation just makes it grow more.

if it's any consolation, there's a freight train of a storm system headed this way this weekend. if that doesn't put you over, i'm not sure what will, lol.

both girls were born immediately after major fronts came through (the oldest was 12 days late, and the younger was 14 days, but d on't worry, i don't think they let moms go that far over anymore.)
