Harvest exchange stitching finished

Yesterday I finished the stitching for the piece I'm doing for the SBEBB harvest/autumn exchange. No picture, of course. It's a rather large piece, and I'm very proud of it. I asked my mom to bring some autumn fabric over when she comes for her next visit.

I've also been looking into what I want to stitch for the snowman exchange and the ornament exchange (not even announced yet). I go hot and cold on exchanges--right now I'm really hot on them! :-)

I've also been working on The Awakening, but it's slow going. I've run into a bit of confetti.

Baby: The doctor is talking about a possible cesarian section, which is giving me panic attacks. He suggests a therapist to help me handle the panic since there's no medication they can give me to knock me out. My blood pressure was fine this time (no stress this last week), but I bet it's high again next time!

I hope you don't have to have a c-section. I don't understand what you mean by the therapist though. Has your little boy gotten to be a big boy and thus the reason for the c-section?

Doctors are good at scaring the wits out of a person, aren't they? :( I would agree that you should see a therapist to discuss the panicky feelings. I know I'd feel the same in your shoes. Take care!

I had an emergency c-section with a spinal and it really wasn't that bad. I had Riley at 11.34am on the Sunday and was up and about looking after baby by 5am on the Monday morning. I felt fine, just had to take it careful for a couple of weeks and let DH do the hard work like vacuuming and grocery shopping.

I was very impressed with how it went and being awake so I could meet baby straight away. It was so quick too. I didn't even realise they'd started when Riley was out and screaming! Please don't get yourself in a tizzy about it. I'm terrified of hospitals, have a major needle phobia etc but if I got pregnant again, my preferred birth method would be another c-section.

If you want to chat about it, send me an email :o)

I know I'm a bit late on this, but I had an emergency c-section as well, with Patrick.
The spinal didn't really hurt; the hardest part was sitting *very* still. After that, things progressed very quickly and Patrick was born about half an hour after they'd started.
I was lucky with my recovery time; it didn't seem to take long at all. He was born at 10.36pm and I was up and about (with help from a lovely student nurse) about 12 hours or so later.
I'll extend the e-mail offer too. :) _
