28 weeks

I am 28 weeks pregnant today. I had an apt with my midwife. Babies heartbeat was strong at 157. She has turned so she is head down now. I will start having my appointments every other week now instead of once a month. I really couldn't be feeling any better. It was a great week. I didn't have any heartburn, I have tons of energy and get a lot done. I didn't gain any weight this week.

This week our baby is about 2.25 lbs and 14.8 inches head to toe. She can open and close her eyes which now have eyelashes, and she is developing her eyesight. She is also developing billions of neurons in her brain, and is adding more fat in preparation to be born!

Here is the photo of the quilt that I finished a few weeks ago as promised. I used 1" squares and it took me forever to sew together.

I also made another quilt. It is a puff quilt. It was my first one and really fun to make. I still have to sew around the border so that it doesn't scrunch up, and then sew down the binding by hand, but it is close to being done. This quilt is made up of 153 individual 2.5" pillows that I sewed together and then added batting and a minky backing.

The quilt is very cute and seems to have taken a lot of patience ;) thanks for sharing

Love the puff quilt, I have this pinned to do sometime in the future when I am ready to tackle a more difficult sewing project!! Nice job!
