Little Stitching

I don't have much to show from the past few days, mainly because I haven't felt the best. I have been working on Winter Fun on Ice here and there when I have felt up to it.

As you know yesterday I had an appointment with a specialist and it went great. First of all, when I was referred to see Dr. T I had a sneaky suspicion that he was the same doctor that I saw with Mac's pregnancy. I wasn't exactly positive since the doctor that we saw with Mac was in Springfield, Missouri and this one was in Joplin, Missouri. You can not imagine how relieved I was to find out today that it was him. Basically, I knew he wouldn't try and hide anything from me. He is a honest doctor but not in a way that makes you feel bad.

At first, it was a nurse who did the scan but then Dr. T came in and finished it up and got all the information he needed. I was quite relieved to see the little one moving around and sucking on her fingers. :) So cute! As of today she weighs about 1 pound 12 ounces and 157 beats per minute. She is doing great! No signs of fetal distress or growth problems. :D

Tomorrow I have another doctor's appointment with Dr. H. This appointment should be a routine check up. I have to drink that nasty glucose drink (again) and have my blood tested for gestational diabetes. Dr. H said he would be shocked if I turned out to be since I have only gained a total of 8 pounds so far.

Yesterday was also the kids first day back to school. I didn't even have to wake any of them up to get ready.....even Mac! I still can't believe that it was Krissy's first day of high school (grade 9). I swear just yesterday it was her first day of kindergarten! She lucked out and gets to attend a brand new high school here so she is just as lost in finding her classes as the older kids. :) Allie is in junior high (grade 8) this year but she also is going to a different school so she got lost a couple of times. Mac (grade 5) is the only one who is back at the same school this year so he had no problems at all.

Since the kids are back in school that might mean I can actually get some quality stitching time to myself. :)

Happy Stitching!

Dawn, it's good to hear that you're getting extra care with your pregnancy and that your little girl is doing well.

It's a challenge getting everyone started in a new school year. I can't believe all the papers I've had to fill out! This year my new high schoolers are running cross country, so extra gear, papers, money, time, etc add to the new school year equation!

Good luck to all of you as you settle in to the new schedule. :)
