30 Weeks: Saturday Snapshots

June 23, 2012

Karen’s baby blanket is almost complete!! She has crocheted it from scratch –


Grey + yellow to match the nursery! I love the little rosebud stiches


We gave it a test on a bear [the bears say they are getting tired of being treated like babies!]

Snug as a bug in a rug.

The blanket is gorgeous. And I can certainly see how the bears feel although I imagine they are enjoying thinking about a new brother. It’s going to be Boy City at your house!

Beautiful blanket Kath!

My sister JUST found out she is pregnant with her second child yesterday. She loves BERF (most likely gave her baby fever) , so I thought I’d get your recommendation for a simple little “first gift” for her good news 🙂

Awww congrats to her! I don’t really know what would make a great first gift – but I bet you can find something really special on Etsy : )

What a beautiful blanket! I love the bear picture. 🙂

You’ll have to take one after he is born and put them side by side. 🙂


17 Patricia June 23, 2012 at 8:33 pm

Love the blanket pattern. Would Karen share the stitch/pattern she is using?


18 KERF June 23, 2012 at 9:18 pm

I will ask her

Hi! I noticed on your BBT chart, you ovulated in the mid 20s of your cycle…do they make the due date later since its past the “typical” day 14? I have longer cycles since going off BC and ovulate around cycle day 28 on average.


20 KERF June 23, 2012 at 9:43 pm

They tried to, but they corrected themselves when I told them I knew when I ovulated and then again when they dated the baby – to my O date to the day 🙂 My doctor made notes of my LMP and O date in the beginning and then picked the right one that matched the U/S


21 Diane June 25, 2012 at 3:08 pm

With my daughter, I knew that my O date was a few days late and the first ultrasound confirmed this, but they still based my due date on my LMP. So when I got to my due date still pregnant, there was some pressure to induce, but I knew that I was not actually “late.” Of course, my daughter ended up coming naturally on her REAL due date. So if you end up going past your LMP due date, just remind them you are not really late.

Such a sweet blanket and bear-wrapped shot; great handiwork, Karen!


23 Heidi Bundles Of Hugs June 24, 2012 at 11:03 am
