baby update and February baby sweater

Okay, I suppose it's time for another baby update. I don't remember where I left off (and I'm too lazy to check!).

I will start with some answers from questions the other Aimee asked: My due date is April 18th. And about the ultrasounds, back in December I had an abnormal ultrasound (I had low amniotic fluid). So I was sent to a specialist who told me that even though it's low, it's still in the normal range. But she thought it would be best if I had ultrasounds once a month just to check it out. My OB agreed. My 6th ultrasound is scheduled for the 20th. It's nice getting to see the baby a lot, but it's also a little stressful knowing that there might be something wrong. So far so good, but things can change. And I'm having a girl! Sabrina Noelani. My husband wanted a Hawaiian middle name because he was born in Hawaii (but he's not Hawaiian).

The newest baby news is that I passed the glucose test so I don't have gestational diabetes. Yay! Since I'm a little overweight and since diabetes runs in both sides of my family, I have taken the test twice and have passed with flying colors both times! Oh, and I'm not anemic, so no iron supplements for me! YAY! I've only gained 14lbs, which is good. I got a stern talking to at the last appointment because I gained too much in 6 weeks, but since I hadn't gained anything before that, I just got the "don't do it again," but it was over Christmas..... And I'm happy to say that at yesterday's appointment I hadn't gained anything. That does worry me a bit, but they don't think there's anything wrong with it. I mean, I don't think I can possibly eat any more food! Unless, of course, they want me to have a milkshake everyday...

Knitting progress: I finished Daisy from knitty, I just have to sew the seams up.... I don't think I'll do that pattern again since there's so much seaming to do, I'd rather do it in the round. I've also started a February Baby Sweater (or Baby Sweater on Two Needles (February)) for my cousin who is having twins!! And because I need a picture (no matter how crap-tastic it is):
