38 Weeks

I'm here. I'm still pregnant (not that I would expect not to be at this point). I'm getting things done to be ready for whenever baby decides it's showtime.

My hospital bag is mostly packed, in so far as it can be. I'm 75%+ through my list at work of stuff I want done before I go on leave. The bassinet is in our bedroom. I'm working on the HR/FMLA paperwork stuff (I hate bureaucratic paperwork).

Some nights I sleep well, more nights I don't. I feel heavy and cumbersome and generally tired and blah most days, worse on days when I haven't slept well the night before. I've been successfully taking both my iron supplements and my prenatal multivitamin for almost two weeks, so hopefully that is dealing with the anemia. I have Braxton-Hicks contractions, more when I'm tired or possibly a bit dehydrated (tho I try to avoid the latter). Occasionally I have a contraction that hurts a bit.

There's really nothing more to report. How are you?

Hi! I found your blog through Ravelry -- your Nancy Linberg Christmas stocking with the train design! I LOVE it! Can you tell me where you got the train design? Thanks! Dana dvarland@gmail.com

Hi Dana,

Thanks for the compliments! I don't really remember where I got the train pattern anymore. I think I just did a Google image search for train chart and then modified something I found and liked. I've added a JPEG image of the train chart I ended up with to the project on Ravelry, hope that helps you.
