I am heading into my 3rd trimester and my energy level is dipping low these days. My back aches from carrying the extra weight and I constantly feel the need to use the bathroom. I feel so ungraceful as I waddle around. Plus, I caught a cold this week when the weather suddenly turned into Fall.
Yesterday, I went for my glucose screening test to check for gestational diabetes. They made me drink this super sweet orange drink and then I get to sit around for an hour and then have my blood drawn. Now, I just have to wait for the results to come back.
I can't believe that my pregnancy will be over soon. There are so many more projects that I want to make before the baby comes. I have been knitting mostly from my yarn stash and only bought a few new yarns when I found out the gender of the baby. However, there was some yarn stash enhancement this past weekend. I went to a giant Jo-Ann Fabric Store in upstate NY (Palisades Mall) and lots of things were on sale. DH said that I spent 2-3 hours there while he wandered through the mall. I got a lot of fun things for more crafting, but here are the yarns that I bought (for the baby):
Debbie Mumm Traditions "BeesWax", maybe for a Modular Tomten Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann. I bought 3 skeins, but I'm not sure if 447 yds is enough.Patons Decor "First Spring", for a Baby Pullover by Knitting Pure & Simple.Patons Shetland Chunky "Blue Jeans", for a vest.
