A Long Weekend

The Army actually gave Joe a four-day weekend. But shhhh…. I’m sure it must be a mistake!

On Saturday we took a day trip to Harpers Ferry, WV. We had a nice time. A lot of walking (and it was hot), but it was fun.

We didn’t do much on Sunday.

On Monday we went to Gettysburg, PA, to the movies. Joe and the boys saw Superman and Spenser and I saw The Devil Wears Prada. Then we shopped a little at the outlets. And enjoyed dinner at Texas Roadhouse, where kids eat free on Monday nights!

On the 4th we went to my aunt’s house for a giant breakfast and the children swam. Then we had lunch/dinner at Joe’s parents house and at night we went to watch the fireworks.

Today I had my bi-weekly OB appointment. I am scheduled for my next sonogram on Friday 7/7. I’ve been having a lot of pelvic pressure with cramping. My doctor said it could be due to my condition (complete placenta previa) as the baby gets heavier, it is resting on my placenta. The sonogram will be able to determine the placenta’s placement, if my subchorionic hematoma is still present, if my cervix is closed or dilating (since I am unable to have internal exams, again due to my condition), plus all the regular things sonograms routinely check.

I finished nearly all of my sewing projects on Saturday morning before our day trip.

Here is Spenser with three of the four wee bunnies I’ve made, including Jack & Mason’s green ones (it was the only “non-specific gender” green fabric in the house, which incidentally matches my maternity skirt and Spenser’s dress).

A fabric ball for the baby. A tissue holder (my allergies are going wild!). A headband for Sandy.

And my first fabric ball, which Carter has begged for.

The bib pictures turned out blurry, but I finished the snap.

And, as far as the cover for the ironing board: I think Christy has talked me into buying one instead of making one. She has a degree in fashion design and, as we were discussing fabrics, batting, drawstrings, etc., she said it would probably cost at least $10 in materials, when I could buy one for less than $15 (especially if I use my 40% coupon at Jo-Ann’s). Sooo, I’m thinking about just buying one now. But I did find instructions for one, if you’re interested.

That sounds like a perfectly lovely weekend. ::sigh::
And we are sisters in doctor’s appointments — that’s when I get my next x-ray on my foot and hopefully get the okay to start walking in my walking boot!
