Baby Update and some Finished Projects, too!

I thought I would give a little baby update since I had a doctor's appointment on Friday.  Things are looking good, however, the little one is not cooperating as far as her positioning is concerned.  Both her head and her feet are up -- I guess she will be a little gymnast or cheerleader like her mama--and because of her small medical condition, the doctor doesn't want to try to get her to turn, thinking that she is remaining in this position for her own safety.  
So, I go back to Milwaukee in two weeks for another ultrasound and we will decide what to do from there.  I was so hoping for a natural delivery, but if I have to have a c-section, I guess I will make the best of it.  I know it's a common procedure, but also know that natural birth is typically better for both mama and baby.  Everything happens for a reason, so will give it some time and see how it all turns out. If I do have a c-section, she may be arriving sooner, rather than later, and this 42 year old former workaholic isn't quite sure what to do with a baby!
I did finish some baby projects over the weekend.  This is the Bear Hugs: Baby Wrap Cardigan Kit from Plymouth Yarn Co..  It was my first kitted sweater and was pretty easy.  My least favorite part was piecing it together, then finishing the ends.  
Here is the button detail.  Kind of unisex, don't you think?
I also finished this cute rolled brim baby hat that I started as part of the Baby Hat Class at Magpie's Cottage.  I would be very disappointed if her head is too big for all the stuff I've made!!!
And finally, a spring scarflet for myself made from Misti Alpaca Pima Cotton/Silk yarn in colorway Neptune.  I have lots left, so will probably make another little hat!  Then mama & baby can match when we're out getting our exercise!

Now I'm off to enjoy the beautiful day we're having in Sheboygan County!  Hopefully Mother Nature will be kind to us for the rest of the month!

  1. How exciting! What's funny is that I was born as a face presentation, and my little sister was born butt-first (folded in half) ... both of which would be cause to do a c-section these days. No matter what, I'm sure they'll take great care of you and your sweet baby girl. :) xo!

  2. It's amazing how within a few short days, you are truly your baby's expert. No one else will know what she needs better than you. Our first was so exciting. We would lay on the bed and just watch her not realizing how much time elapsed. Enjoy these last few weeks.
