30 weeks, 4 days

I am in the home stretch now! This post will be short and sweet--I slammed my index finger of my right hand in the car door on Saturday. It doesn't hurt like it did but the finger is still sore to the touch so I'm not using it much--making typying a bit of a challenge.

So I am 30 weeks and 4 days pregnant. Still feeling good! Getting a bit more tired in the afternoons, up nearly ever hour on the hour it seems to go to the bathroom, and my hips fall asleep and hurt while I'm sleeping causing some discomfort, but really no complaints.

The baby is moving around like crazy these days and it feels so weird--often like being tickled from the inside out. It is so much fun to know she is in there. I hope she is as excited to meet us in the outside world as we are to meet her!

Last weekend I was at a conference in Nashville, TN and the welcome reception was at the Wildhorse Saloon. Check out the hot guy I met! You can see my expanding belly a little bit...more "belly shots" to come.

Keeping me busy the past few nights has been Sophia's hand knitted blanket. I started this project about 2 years ago as my first introduction to the craft. Let's just say I was a bit ambitious! I actually started the blanket for a friend of ours who was expecting but clearly didn't give myself enough time...so by default the blanket has become Sophia's. If by chance this baby ends up being a boy I am just going to weave some blue ribbon through the eyelets around the edge! I finally finished the blanket tonight, bum finger and all! It is not easy to knit without using your index finger. It's just a labor of love! I hope she appreciates this blanket as much as I do.
