In an effort to keep worry at bay, I've kept busy with knitting projects. Yesterday I finished a Yoda Sweater for my stepbrother's baby boy who is due in March. It was so easy to knit, but it was my first time working with cotton. Cotton is great for babies because it is machine washable and very soft. But it turns out that it can be a pain to knit with since any change in tension can show up in the stitches. Overall though I'm pretty happy with it, and I just started a matching hat with the leftover yarn.
I also finished my first sock. It is not the best looking sock ever as I kept forgetting to knit through the back loop in the proper places. However at some point I realized that I had to press on despite the mistakes as I would never get it finished otherwise. I've now started on sock #2, and I'm about half way through the ribbing at the top. Let's just hope #2 doesn't take me 4 months like #1 did!
On the baby-growing front (as opposed to the baby-making front) I have noticed a little cramping today. It was a bit worrisome, but Dr. Google (I know I said I'd stay away, but it is just so hard!) says this is normal as the placenta is digging in to the uterine lining and setting up camp for the next 9 months. And since I'm determined not to drive myself crazy with nervousness, I'm doing my best to ignore any sensation below my waist and trying to distract myself with hobbies.
