09.27.10 :: 195 weeks old


Sean is 195 weeks old today.


Right now it's the Jewish Holiday of Sukkot. The nearest synagogue to us, has a Mega Block Sukkot on their property. It's the coolest thing ever. Sean wants to bring it home & use it as a fort. I think it's the coolest thing ever. I'm wondering how they got this many mega blocks.


I started a headband for a friend today.


I also finished a headband for a friend today.


Pattern: 86-10 Headband in Alaska by DROPS design (My Ravelry Project)
For: My friend Naomi
Yarn: 0.34 skein of Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash in 817
Needles: US 8 - 5.0 mm
Size: Followed instructions
Timeline: September 27, 2010
Modifications: None, knit pattern as written.
Opinion: I've made one of these for my cleaning lady last year. This year my friend Naomi requested one. I still want to make myself one, I just love this pattern. I hope Naomi likes hers when she receives it (hopefully sometime next week).

Had my glucose test today at the hospital. I don't remember getting nauseas after drinking that liquid after I did the same test with my pregnancies for Sean & Mackenzie. One of the boys I had to go back and do the 3 hour test. I can't remember which one at the moment. Luckily I didn't have gestational diabetes with either pregnancy, so I am hoping that I don't have it this time again. I drank the stuff, waited the hour (chatting up with a few people in the waiting room who were admiring what I was knitting (see above to what they were admiring) and then had to do a blood test after the hour was up. The nurse really wasn't that great today and jabbed my arm with the needle. She really wasn't gentle all, and I was already feeling quite faint. I really hope that I don't have to go back to do the 3 hour glucose test. I see my doctor this week, so we'll see what she has to say about my test results (which she should have received this afternoon). With less than 10 weeks to go til I hit 37 weeks, I really hope that I don't have to deal with gestational diabetes, on top of the placenta praevia. That.would.just.suck. Baby boy didn't like the liquid I had to drink today... he was moving around the entire hour after I drank it. Very active little guy.

If he was moving around so much it's probably because he DID like all that sugar quite a bit. I didn't really like that liquid either, reminded me of orange pop, I just downed it though. Hope everything comes out ok!

I love your headbands too! :-)

Seeing that many Mega Bloks reminds me of what my basement used to look like before we gave most of them away! But then again, I used to work for Mega BLoks, so that explains it...

Ugh, that test was the worst. Keeping my fingers crossed that you'll pass with flying colours!
