Let me off this ride!

My health has been deteriorating, and I am doing my best to keep this baby cooking as long as possible. We did hit the 100% survival marker, which is fantastic. My doctors are just having to watch me closely to make sure that this doesn't become even more dangerous to me. I told my ob how guilty I feel about possibly having a preemie for the sake of my health. His response? "You're a mother. You'll feel guilt the rest of your life. Let's make sure you're here for it." Such a sucky situation.

I just can't get motivated to knit when I feel so bad. I need something fun to pick up my spirits. Turning 36 tomorrow isn't it! lol

I should just force myself to pick up the needles and do something. Even if it's a bunch of baby washcloths.

I just wanted to say that I think you are an amazing person. I read your blog today, and you are always so positive and upbeat. I don't know all about your situation, but I am amazed that someone in your position can have such a positive outlook, and you do so many things for other people. I am sorry you are having such health problems, and I hope you and your new baby are doing ok.

I have a cute idea for you do do on your loom. Make a patchwork quilt type afgan. Making all the squares, like you make the dishclothes, and then sewing them together. It would be a cute blanket for your baby.

There are lots of cute patterns here:
