((((bobbi)))) what sad/scary news about your friend. i really hope its not MS
you dont need any more bad news this close to baby time.. you need to keep your spirits up.
icecream. it does sound good. the weird thing is, since ive been sick i have not craved much of anything. my appetite is bad and i have such bad heartburn
i eat because i need to but im really not that into it. i remember being this pregnant and being starving last time around. even the thought of icecream doesn't peak my interest much. boo.
thanks. im getting excited that she is coming today. im really going to try not to be a grump with her. its kind of one of those left over from being a teenager things or something, but she tends to rub me the wrong way. but my kids adore her and she is really a good person.. even if we have some issues..so yeah.
on sewing machines, one of my mdc mama friends came to visit this summer and left me her little brother serger..she just mailed me the presser-foot a few days ago and i have a husqvarna machine that is like 40 years old and a total tank, but it sews amazingly well. its been my plan to do some sewing but being sick has really made it hard to get things done. i bought some really nice fabric from ETSY and still want to make a quilted changing pad and a blanket for baby. maybe while my mom is here..my MIL is a great seamstress, so maybe when she comes she could do it for me, if i haven't gotten to it yet. happy sewing to those of you actually tackling these tasks!
i folded and sorted all of my baby clothes yesterday. it was so fun. there are a few things that my son wore when he was born, some tiny cotton sleepers and stuff that made me all melty thinking about when he was a baby. he was so tiny & perfect. i think my dd2 was too big for those things (all 10lbs of her) but my dd3 fit them for a while. anyways, i have a wicker laundry basket full of tiny soft NB things most of which wont work till the lotus birth is complete. i guess a sleeper with an umbilical cord still attached wont work so well..though i have never tried it. i think baby will mostly wear the long sleeved kimono shirts i found with a diaper and the wooly knee socks i knit. it should only be a week till it separates.
i was thinking today i need to get my lotus birth stuff together. my dp isn't into the idea though, so im not sure what we are going to do...
feeling queezy & crampy this am and littlest dd woke me up way too early with wet pants in my new clean bed (luckily it was mostly on her) im going to put on "Ponyo" for her and try to nap a bit more.
