My other heart

I feel like my tummy has a heartbeat of its own. Could this be hiccups? I'm told it's common for the baby to have hiccups in utero - but I've never felt them before. It is really kind of cool.

No knitting this weekend - I've been enjoying resting while doing nothing else. The Sweetie and his dad had fun running electrical and other cables down through the walls from the attic, to put in new outlets, light switches, and the like. The Sweetie's mom and I went out to lunch with a friend of hers who recently moved to our area, and basically hung out at our leisure.

Today I went to knitting group and almost finished the second sleeve on the Tulips sweater. I also picked up my yarn from a pooled KnitPicks order - I'm ready for the Christmas stocking plus Baby Moc-a-Sock booties, plus Pea Pod Baby Sweater. I think I have enough knitting to keep me busy tomorrow during the 3-hour glucose tolerance test! It's probably optimistic to think I'll even finish the sweater in that time.

I'm thinking of slipping the booties to the front of the queue - they can't take too long, can they? And then I'll have a nice, quick FO.

Hiccups! Very common. My Girlie had them all the time in utero. The Boyo not so much. My pregnant friend just told me her baby is hiccuping. I think you're both at about the same stage. Her baby's due mid April.

Booties are the quickiest knit ever. For a while, I got to the point where I could crank out a pair in 3-4 hours. I hope the glucose test went well. Baby hiccips, I remember that, it was funny and kind of annoying at the same time!
