Blanket is done

blanket for baby

I finished knitting the blanket for the lion cub today. It feels so good to finish it and I love how it turned out.

In other news, Tuesday's appointment was good. His fluid was up supposedly (from 6.5 or so to 9) but I'm not sure I believe it. He did just okay on his NST -- he didn't want to stay on the monitors but what we did see was good. My bp was good and I still have no other signs of pre-e . Yay!

I'll be 35 week tomorrow and have my next appointment at the big university hospital tomorrow. Another AFI and NST as well as dopplers of his umbilical cord. I hope he does well. I have to stop by my office and pick up some forms to enroll the baby in our health plan.

Other than the blanket, this week was mildly productive. I got my disability started, found a back-up doula and a pediatrician.

Not much else new. Just hoping to hang out for another 2.5 weeks or so before we meet our little one.

Thanks for coming over to comment on my blog today. What you said really hit home to me: "I got to the point where I had to prepare and believe and love even if things later went to hell. I needed to know that I had done my best to love and prepare for my child in whatever time I was given." Those words are so very powerful.

I'll be thinking of you in these last few weeks leading up to the delivery of your little lion cub! :)

The blanket is awesome. I love it the colors. I can only imagine how excited to be to think that in only a matter of weeks you can wrap your little lion cub in it.

I wanted to say thank you also for writing to my mother SeaStar. I know it means a lot to her.
