I finally finished a project! I've been working on this quilt since July so it felt great to finally finish it. I had to take a big break from it when my morning sickness was at its peak.
I loved sewing with the Charley Harper fabrics. The pattern is the Kitchen Window Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman, modified to be queen sized instead of throw sized. I struggled deciding how to quilt this one. I have never done anything other than a basic meander, so I really branched out and I did organic line quilting!
I love how it turned out! It was a hard one to give away!
I made Hubby take a 19 week photo of me. I'm a little late as I hit the 20 week mark on Monday, but hopefully I'll get that picture taken this weekend. Here's a fun little comparison for you of my current 19 week belly and my 19 week belly with Cameron.
I didn't make a shirt to track my weeks for this poor little babe. I'll have to figure out some kind of system so I can remember which week it was.
I still wear my sea bands. I'm worried to take them off because I don't want to be nauseous. I'm starting to have hints of heartburn, too. With Cameron I had to take heartburn medicine every day, so I hope I don't have to do that again. I still have aversions to chicken, although I can eat soup with chicken if someone else makes it. Eggs are hard for me to eat, too. I mostly have a hard time with the way cooked eggs smell. It's so weird. I think I could eat a hardboiled egg without problems, but scrambled are a different story. Cameron and I eat a lot of black bean quesadillas because salsa has been a constant good tasting thing for me. As far as cravings go, they don't hit me very often. Right now I can't stop thinking about apple crisp. I even debated making a pan this afternoon, but I don't trust myself to save any for Hubby. Fruit in general tastes really good to me, so I guess that's at least a healthy craving!
My friend and I have decided to get more into our photography and do a 52 week challenge. The only successful 52 week challenge I have ever completed was Cameron's! That was hard and it was just a photo of a baby. We are going to have themes to keep us motivated. I'm excited to get started!
Just a quick bump shot. I've been really bad at weekly photos this time around. Maybe next week I'll wear real clothes. ;)
I've been starting to feel little flutters of baby movement! I don't remember when I was first able to feel cameron moving around, but it was probably around the 18-19 week mark. We have our ultrasound next week but still can't decide if we should find out the gender or wait until baby is born. It's such a hard decision this time!!
