new sonogram. (turning into a baby blog?)

Had he first trimester check up. The fetus has all of its parts! Legs, arms, spine, beautiful beating heart, nasal bone, bladder, stomach, and so forth. Everything measured well too. What a relief. I've been having dreams that the baby has multiple legs/arms and is actually a squid. When the squid arrives it attacks Jake and kills him. Weird? So it was a relief to see a baby with all the correct parts.

I've still been sick and unable to keep any food/liquid down for long. That should change tomorrow since i'm giving in and getting anti nausea drugs. I'm looking forward to eating a meal and only tasting it once. The heat/humidity in northern florida has been killing me. Note to self: if i'm ever nuts enough to do this again, plan around the summer.

anyway here are some new pictures!

not yay

I'm supposed to be hanging out with other potters at penland, but instead on my my couch with a bowl of ice cream.

Packed my bags/cars up left the house at 7am... by 10:30 I had turned the car around and headed back home. Just couldn't do it. Vomiting and driving not so safe and then i started to feel guilty about dorm mates/workshop mates having to deal with my constant bathroom trips. Just bad timing i suppose and it as a reality check on baby first, everything else second.

new post

Almost time for penland!


I leave on Sunday for 2 weeks and thankfully I'm feeling much better. The fetus is 11 weeks and less susceptible to external toxins since all of it's organs are developed.

I haven't touched clay in 2 months, which feels extremely strange but I'm excited to get out of the humidity and make some work again.
