Things Are Getting Real

These next few weeks are going to be very interesting.  I can’t do any cooking.  So, it’s all up to the hubanero.  He’s already made it very clear there’s going to be a whole lotta mac’n’cheese in this house.  Ho boy.

So far, I’m exceedingly bored.  Bed rest is the absolute pits.  I want to read, but I don’t know what to read.  Knitting is starting to feel like actual work.  I want to bake cookies.  Am I allowed to bake cookies?  I have a standing mixer, I can pull a chair right up to the counter.  You know what?  Screw it.  I’m baking cookies.

The really sad thing about all this?  Today was only my second full day on bed rest.  Holy crap, this truly is going to be hell…..

Also, I want to bake this bundt cake again….


Bed Rest Sucks

Oh the joys of pregnancy!  After spending yesterday morning in the emergency room, I am now on bed rest.  Later today I have an appointment with my regular doctor, hopefully she tells me I no longer need to be on bed rest.  I have total placenta previa, which means my placenta is completely covering my cervix.  This is a complication I truly don’t know much about.  Even with my obsessive googling.  My baby could move higher as it grows, but I have no idea if I have to remain on bed rest until that happens.  It’s killing me, not knowing.  And having to wait to find out!  I’m also feeling pretty worthless, my body is failing me.  Trying to stay positive.  The baby is doing great so far.

On the plus side, I’ll get a lot of knitting done!  It’s too bad G-funk can’t stay home with me.  I love knitting with her.

Isn’t she so dang adorable?!  G is determined to finish a washcloth for Grandma for Christmas.  She just might do it! 

Well, I’m going to leave off here.  I need to knit the pain away.  Here’s hoping bed rest won’t last long!!!

Quick Knits

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I truly enjoy giving handmade gifts.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of spare time for crafting.  Thank goodness for quick knits!  These dishcloths can be knit in 2 hours.  Pop in a Christmas movie and knit your fingers off!  Potholders are another really quick knit.

From Saturday night until Sunday night, I managed to finish 3 dishcloths, a pothold and I cast on a new dishcloth.  I was not a dedicated knitter, either.  All were made with Sugar’n Cream cotton yarn.  My plan is to have about 14 more done by next week.  Wish me luck!
