Ok - I know the blogging thing's gone a bit awry lately - blame extreme tiredness coupled with burst of manic nesting. But I am still doing stuff - here's one of things I've knitted recently:
It's from the Debbie Bliss Special Babies book although I used a slightly different yarn to the one recommended and I think it's knitted up a bit on the large side. Not to worry - she'll grow into it!.
The embroidery on this seemed to take ages - every night for about a week I seemed to be doing little daisies - I was pretty sick of them by the end!
As you can see I'm getting bigger - although still thankfully not massive. This is the latest bump picture taken last week at 34 weeks - still some way to grow I think although according to my midwife the baby is measuring around 5lbs which is spot on for 34 weeks.
Other than feeling really tired I'm still well. I've decided (with a bit of persuasion from John and my Mum) to postpone finishing my dissertation until early next year - I've officially got the whole academic year to do it and trying to get it done before the baby arrives has been stressing me out to be honest. I do feel like a weight has been lifted off me but still worry a a bit about whether I'm going to pick it up again once the baby arrives. But I'm not even going to think about it until after Christmas.
I hope everyone's well. I keep popping into all my favourite blogs to see what everyone's up to and feel like I'm still vaguely in the loop!
