thanks so much angelorum! that helps so much--- just needed someone else to help spell it out have you done this pattern?
Anyone have hints for the CURLY PURLY soaker pattern. I am done with the "body" but am getting confused at this part.    -----------------   Knit from start of round to first marker (right hip). BO 5 stitches. Knit to 5 stitches before hip marker (left hip), BO 5 stitches. Knit across, k2tog last 2 stitches. Turn and purl (or knit backwards) until 2 stitches remain. SSP remaining 2 stitches.

hey ladies.... haven't had time for a full response yet, but I commiserate/ empathize so much with you both. things are looking up for me in my 18th week--feeling first baby kicks and its a specific source of joy, however I am still exhausted and no desire to do anything!!! blah. goatmamma--- you're due in April?! have you joined the ddc? finding lots of support there. send me a private message with your email and I can add you to the Facebook group too, which is much...

I am not...

Sara---- I am right there with you! not planning any ultrasounds and won't listen for the heartbeat for 10 more days (which I admit doesn't sound so far away as it did a month ago)..... so hard, with all the mamas around us getting their first u/s or hearing the heartbeat for the first time and also just hearing scary stories. it feels hard for me to have made it to the second tri and want to feel like I can be out and open (still waiting to go fully public until we hear a...
