I’ve been home from the hospital for one week now. Last week I was hospitalized for two days with placental bleeding and a lupus flare. It was extremely scary. The good- most important- news is that baby is OK! I’ll have to admit that I have had more “excitement” during my pregnancy than I was ever hoping for.

So, this week I’ve been home resting. I’m on a few more medications that will hopefully calm the lupus down. I’m not sure if it’s the medicine, the scare from the bleed, growing my little girl, or the lupus itself but I’ve been pretty tired. I’m sleeping a full night and then taking 1-2 naps a day. Crazy!

Yesterday I finally felt like I had enough energy to start sewing again. Just finished the top of a quilt I started AGES ago. This afternoon I may cut out pieces for another quilt. Feels nice to sew.
