Oh no, Mindy! Healing and healthy baby thoughts your way! I agree with the others, call you midwife and see if you can get a scan in right away. Hoping baby is healthy and sound and you body is the only tender part.

Oh no mindy! I would totally hop in the car now and drop off the Doppler (if I didn't have to seal with napping babies and traffic)

Re: KAL ~ Christmas Crafts: Dec 2-8

Thank you guys. The midwife didn't schedule, they just give the orders and I scheduled it. I'm giving it till DH is home and if there are still issues going on we'll go in to the ER to make sure it's just ligaments or muscles or something and not placenta. I've been trying to lay down for the most part and chill. I got water and was down but decided to get up and have some cinnamon roll, going to see if I can get little dude to give me SOME motion. Going back to lay down but will check in a little later again. Turning on my phone's facebook if anyone wants to text/message me that way though.

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.

my iPhone is a trixie little hobbit that never really says what I mean!
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.

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?

Not yet. They said that first we have to get the blockage out, then we can determine what is causing it, and try to prevent it from happening again. It seems to be a long slow process. The down side to it taking so long is that she is not allowed to eat anything, so she will have to re-gain all this weight back up before she can come home again. We are just taking it one day at a time.

How much more length should I add?
It does need 1.5" of hem line (2x2 rib)




And playing with his "missiles"

Wow Erica! It looks great! I'm so jealous! I want to make my big boys sweaters. I would make it as long as the shirt under it. It looks like a good length on him.

Re: KAL ~ Christmas Crafts: Dec 2-8

I like the length of his shirt under, so, I would say if the ribbing is supposed to be 1.5 I would go to an inch from where his shirt is so the sweater ends up being about .5 inches longer than where his shirt is now because the ribbing will make it pull up.
