And.....we are still waiting.

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. We are still waiting on Jellybean to make an appearance. Abby had an ultrasound today and everything is fine. Jellybean is just fine and so we wait. She has had her membranes stripped twice now. Hopefully, tonight, tomorrow, maybe Friday. This Grammy is getting anxious.

I've not felt well for a couple of days and really don't know what's going on. I was fine Monday. I actually got the laundry done and put away and worked in the office. I was tired that night but not overly. But Tuesday, I woke with a really bad pain in my low back and in my shoulder. The shoulder I can understand. There is deterioration in the joint and it hurts most all the time. But my low back doesn't usually hurt in the morning. I took it easy all day Tuesday and felt a little better but then Wednesday, I woke with a severe headache.

I use a C-Pap machine at night and I have a new mask that I started using Tuesday night. I like the mask as it doesn't leak as much as the old one. I'm not sure if that is what gave me the headache or if it was something else. I checked my BP and it was fine. Anyway, I spent most of the day in bed and then the rest of the day in the recliner. I haven't done any crocheting or cross stitching this week. I feel like a slug.

I have a few rows done on Jordan's blanket and I'm working on small granny squares with the leftovers from Jellybean's blanket. I need to get out the sewing machine and patch a pair of jeans and zigzag the edges of my cross stitch fabric. So much to do and being a slug doesn't get the job done. I also have not walked very much so far this year. One of my intentions was to start walking every day and that hasn't happened. See, I'm a slug.

I hope your week is going well and you are doing all those crafty things you enjoy so much. I've been visiting blogs and seeing all the great things you are doing. It makes me want to get so much done.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope each of you have a great day wherever you might be.



  1. I though you had gone quiet because you were busy fussing over a new baby! Soon...... :) x

  2. Sounds like Jellybean is too comfortable where he/she is, just when you least expect it they will be here.

    Sorry to hear you've not been feeling well, hope you're improving.

  3. Hang in there, Jellybean and Abby and Grammy!

    It's kind of a vicious circle when it comes to exercise and feeling cruddy, isn't it? (You feel yucky, so you don't exercise, then you feel yuckier and guilty on top of it. Been there.) Just do the best you can, and I hope you feel better soon. :)

  4. Hope its not too much longer for you now Sharon. Hope you manage to feel much better soon.

  5. Sending warm thoughts that you are feeling better today. That baby has got to come soon. Such excitement.
    Do take care of yourself, Dear Sharon.

  6. I do hope you're feeling better Sharon, and that Jelly Bean decides it's time to meet the family soon!
