Lofty Goals

Nope, no baby yet... and I've reached the end of my limit on that! I finally said enough and started focusing on what I normally do, quilting. :)

It's going to a friend of mine, and the biggest hindrance was that I didn't feel like dragging the big roll of batting out. Not today! Got it out, and got 5 quilts paired with batting. Tomorrow's plan is to pin the quilt. I've already got the backing cut.


The full story of the baby is that Saturday night Chris and I decided that we wanted it to be born soon. We tried a plethora of "natural induction" methods... and obviously they failed. :P All I've got from it is a lower backache. But I could tell that I was getting incredibly cranky over trying so hard, so I said enough tonight. The baby will come when it comes. Given that Chris was a breech baby, and I was a very overdue one, I'll take overdue!

I'm still not that uncomfortable. I've weighed more than I do right now, about 3 years ago. My tummy doesn't feel like it's going to pop. I can breathe just fine, the baby has plenty of room to kick (like right now!)... so how about if I enjoy those last few days as I would normally live, instead of trying to push against nature?

I did figure making goals and announcing them on my blog might nudge the baby though. ;)

What a pretty quilt! You should definitely enjoy your time now, in a few days you will have lots of other things to worry about.

Maybe your quilting energy is your form of nesting :) I can't wait to see the baby, all the babies born around me lately are GIRL GIRL GIRL Jacob needs a buddy so I predict you're having a chubby bubby boy :)

Love that quilt and you are right, the baby will come when it comes so you may as well quilt in the meantime!
