I recently picked up a new hobby – crochet. As you know, I was ordered by my Gynae to rest more, due to 2 occasions of heavy flow and constant spotting since week 12 of my current pregnancy. I’ve since cut down on work that requires me to travel and used the time I spend lazing around to pick up a new skill. I learned the basics from Youtube and then improvised to create booties for Peanut (my little bun in the oven).
On the days when I bled more and worries overwhelmed me, I tried to divert my attention from worrying to creating. I found comfort creating booties and beanies, imagining how they would look and fit on my baby. Sometimes I would weep and smile to myself. On a few occasion the girls would ask what happened and I couldn’t quite explain myself.
When the spotting finally stopped at week 19, I was relieved but only for a couple of days until a scan revealed a 4cm blood clot in my womb. I would have tortured myself to death digging into horrid articles on pregnancy blood clot in the internet if not for the assurance from my Gynae (only a day after the scan), that it shouldn’t post a problem, as long as I do not bleed again. Happy me!
To celebrate our (Peanut’s and mine) little milestone, I am giving away this pair of handmade baby booties on this blog.
|New design. I set up to make a pair of ballerina booties, but later decided to try something new instead.
Here’s the results of my experiment. Do you like the details?
