idle hands . . .

I am 34 weeks and 3 days. I'm officially at the stage where I just feel huge and uncomfortable. Not too extreme, but the thought of waiting for over another month sounds like forever. Sitting up in the morning takes all my energy, and I make a lot of groaning sounds.

Now at least spinning classes I get a little vanity boost because so many people are so impressed with me being there, and they tell me how great I am, and how great I look. Not going to lie, that helps a little. They don't know that I just go home and lie on the couch for a couple hours because I feel exhausted.

Walking around campus when I go to work, I feel the undergrads eyes staring at me with terror. I think I'm a walking warning to them all. "This could happen to you."   

As is obvious from my posts lately, I've been knitting a lot. I'm churning out projects like a mad woman. It's the one thing that truly makes me feel relaxed. When I finish a project I almost panic because in that lull that's when the worries set in, and I usually don't have a very good day. Sometimes Tyler will catch me looking a certain way and he immediately says "you need to start knitting something, do you have a project to do?" He knows what I need.

I finished up this sweater a while ago, but just put the buttons on. I feel like the sleeves and body are a bit wide, but it turned out pretty good. I've got four projects blocking today, I'll get those up soon.

Need to get something new on the needles. . . there is a lot on my mind. . . this kid is going to have so many sweaters.

  1. You go girl! I am not quite 6 months pregnant, and I can' barely do 2 miles- WALKING- on my treadmill! I don't think I could handle spin class even when I wasn't pregnant- so I would be giving you mad props too!

  2. I'm really impressed you're still spinning. That's terrific. Love the sweater. Can't wait until he can do a fashion show for us.

  3. Spinning and knitting? Amazing!

  4. That makes me laugh! I was taking a graduate course with undergrads when I was 7 months pregnant and I felt the constant need to tell them I was happily married and old. It did not help, they were terrified of me. Good luck these next few weeks! You are going to have your very own baby department store with all the things you have made!

  5. i'm amazed that you are even exercising at all! spinning classes? impressive.
