The shawl I picked back up is an 11 row repeat and I had ended up going back one full repeat after those dropped stitches and then not being sure about where I was in the pattern after such a long hiatus. But I reknit that part and since have done another repeat. For perspective, I used to be able to do two repeats in a days knitting now it takes all day to do one. The rows are well over 250 stitches and only getting longer. I am under an ounce left on the first skein and have another skein for it but today I am concentrating on making baby G some socks because our winter is only just getting started and I don't see how it's just going to suddenly warm up and decide to be spring after what we have already seen.

DH has a engine heater on his truck (diesel) and it works really well.I know there was a lot of fighting to get it set up properly initially.

Can you get a remote starter with a timer on it? I can set up my car to turn on and run for a set amount of time at regular intervals. Its the only way I can start it after work if its really cold outside since I can't plug it in.

I don't have a doppler and this kid is hidden behind the placenta and hard to feel normally, so kick checks are not an option and I'm kind of freaking out
Ouch! I hope you're feeling better quickly and that the little one starts dancing inside you so you can relax a little. Orange juice always made my kids go crazy when I was pregnant.

Great update. Do they know what caused the blockage in the first place?
