a few disjointed thoughts for a tuesday

I never celebrated my blog anniversary (blogversary or something.) I've been misspelling words (grammatical errors aplenty!) bitching and moaning, and torturing a few unlucky readers now for 1 year, 1 month and 11 days. wow. that's quite a commitment for me. I usually become disinterested and bored with my projects -- and there are many. this explains the unfinished handknit sweater(s) stored in my basement.

speaking of knitting. I have spent the last 2 weeks designing my own "heirloom" baby blanket. I did a couple of test gauges and finally committed to a size, color and pretty groovy pattern that I created on my own. I'm excited. it will be most challenging and unfortunately, slow-going. who knows how it will actually look in the end. I cast on 168 stitches and I figure if I knit 2 rows a night I will be done by the time little one arrives. good lord. what have I gotten myself into?

I realized I tolerated(?) 76 PIO injections with this pregnancy. that is 38 1.5" shots in each cheek. you know my ass is STILL sore from all those bloody needles.

little one is roughly 4 1/2 inches now, about the size of a grapefruit.

I've gained 10 lbs! I now weigh more than b! "the shrinking skeleton" does NOT eat at hospital -- and we all know how many hours a week he spends there. not good.

little one... I think... is a boy. I believe I saw a little something during my last u/s. b and I finally agreed to not find out the sex if at all possible. call me old fashioned (we all know I'm old.) I just love the idea of this AMAZING surprise coming in august. it's also illegal in korea to find out the sex of a baby until it is born. contrary to what b's mother thinks, we don't live in korea so that's really beside the point.

this is korean for expectant mother. pretty cool!

your MIL must not be up-to-date on the modern laws in korea... it is not illegal to find out the sex of the baby before birth!

I love ramblings!

We're not finding out the sex ahead of time, either. My inkling is a girl, though. I really would love either, but I have had a few girl dreams.

Congrats on the 10 pounds! Being a fatty, I'm hoping that's all I gain for the whole time. Right now I'm down 6. (Was down 8, gained 2 at last doc's appt.)

Happy belated blogosphersary!

Ramblings = awesomeness.
