KnittingKara - I haven't called my doctor's office, either! I'm 8w2d but I have NO desire to get my blood drawn, so I'm waiting as long as possible.
I thought I was beginning to feel better now that I'm in my 8th week, but yesterday was awful. I was cranky, sore, extremely tired, very hungry, dehydrated and just generally feeling terrible. I slept in the car while my husband helped our friends move into their new place, but they know I'm pregnant so they said I had an honorary "supervisor" role :)
My husband and I put in a rental application to an ADORABLE 1930 home in the foothills. It has a cute yard, STORAGE (oh my god), and a garage. Moving in my first trimester wouldn't be fun, but we've accumulated a lot of moving favors from other people so I have no doubt we'd have 5-10 friends coming over to help us. I'm praying that it works out, because I would love to move there - it seems like a house that we could raise our child in. It's also farther away from the freeway, but closer to a different freeway (one that doesn't have trucks on it, though) that would make it easier for my husband to go to work. If you could think of us I'd be very grateful!
Is anyone else starting to think of things to make for the baby? I'm currently knitting this laceweight silk blanket in this lovely peach/tangerine/soft pink to drape over the pram my parents had when I was a baby - it's from England, and while I'll probably never take it out of the house, it will be an awesome (free!) safe spot for the baby to sleep when not in our bed. I'm also planning on cloth diapering, so soakers, longies, etc are on the to knit list. I want to sew a bunch of shirts, pants, and probably a coat or two, as well. My goal is to have more than 60% of the wardrobe be handmade!
