That’s been the theme of my 2nd pregnancy. It’s an odd feeling as I normally have my mind set on what I want to create, do, eat, etc… I’ve been adding tons of knitting patterns to my Ravelry favorites list and yet, I can’t seem to start any of them. The projects that I have started have been sitting, untouched for weeks upon weeks now. I feel so indifferent about everything that I literally cannot make up my mind.
Next week marks the half way point and truly, it feels like I have been pregnant for so long already. While I couldn’t be more excited for the bundle of joy at the end, I am ready for this pregnancy to be over. I am just not one of those women who enjoy pregnancy. I know how fortunate we are to be having another child and so I try to keep the complaining to a minimum. I really am so excited for this new addition to our family of three.
In so many ways, this pregnancy has been way different from my first. For starters, I am exhausted 95% of the time. Then there is my face. I look like I am 13 again. My doc basically laughed at me when I asked if there was anything I could do to fix this. Also, my belly is huge, already.
See, I am huge. I was this big when I was a little more than 6 months pregnant with my first. Get this though, I have only gained about 5 pounds so far!
On my plane ride home from Florida yesterday, I started the Wood Hollow mittens. Hopefully, I will actually finish this project. The yarn I am using is Berroco Blackstone Tweed in plum. It’s truly divine. Never have I felt a tweed this soft. I am hoping this project will break my indifference cycle.
