why I haven't been knitting much lately

I haven't done much knitting recently. I've been exausted every evening. Why, you ask? Well, we are expecting a new little one! I told my knitting friends and a few others but didn't want to spread the word until my 1st doc appt, which was today (well, yesterday, more on that in a moment). After I saw the tiny heartbeat flickering on the sonogram screen, I felt so relieved. We are still considered high risk though because we had a lot of complications with my daughter who ended up being born 11 weeks early. Hopefully that won't happen again, and I have several doctors that I have to see, but I'll do whatever it takes :-)

Although thankfully my morning sickness has been very minor compared to my other pregnancies, this time around I'm totally wiped out. I take a nap during the day whenever I can, and usually end up falling asleep on the couch around 10. Not much knitting time! My MS4 has sat untouched for a couple weeks, I'm not even done with the first clue yet and clue 3 came out last Friday. I have a pair of socks started, a pair of footies I just started tonight, and I just finished a production knitting piece for an upcoming book ( I didn't write the pattern, just knitting the sample for the photo) but I'm not tellin' what it is yet, so don't ask! :-D So, if I'm so tired, why am I up at 4 am you ask? Well, I took a 2 hour nap late this afternoon, and fell asleep on the couch just after 10. Woke up at 1:30, woke up hubby who had also fallen asleep on the couch, and then I couldn't get back to sleep. Hubby started watching TV so I got sucked into the show, then once he started falling asleep he started snorting and snoring, (it is allergy season) and it was driving me crazy! LOL. So, now I'm on the PC. I might knit, I might go lay on the couch, not sure. But I thought it was a good time to catch up on my blog! :-)

I really should try to get some sleep though, so good night!

Congratulations, Jennifer. Wow, it seems like just yesterday you were having Brendan! Time flies. My oldest "baby" went away to college last month.
