30 weeks?!

Can you believe I'm 30 weeks pregnant? I don't know why I feel like 30 weeks is a turning point... (Maybe I'm confusing it with the big three oh?) I feel like now, I'm REALLY pregnant --you know, because for the past 7 months I've only been a little bit pregnant.

Miraculously, I haven't experienced any of the horrible, awful, you're-barely-going-to-make-it symptoms that every pregnant lady with access to an online forum loves to scare you with (uh, knock on wood...).
Let me give you an example: I've read multiple posts about how the orange-flavored glucose drink you have to take for the gestational diabetes test is god-awful. As in, it tastes terrible, nobody can keep it down (can you visualize a pregnant woman vomiting all over a crowded waiting room?) and it makes them dizzy... Well, in reality, it's flat orange soda. What is the problem with flat orange soda?! Why all the hype? Sometimes the internet is a bad thing. Although... I read these forums to cheer myself up when I'm having a bad day!

First and second trimester crafting inertia has finally disappeared, and I'm on a roll!
I made a Peapod Baby Cardigan in Tess' Designer Yarn Superwash Merino (purchased a Brooklyn General a long time ago, in the yummiest shade of green, and awaiting the perfect project).

I love it (even without buttons...), but I'm confused about the yardage requirements. The patterns states that ~500 yds are needed, and I had 560 yds in one hank (!!). I've used about half of the yarn. How is that possible? It's a knitting miracle!
And I started a baby quilt with vintage-looking fabric (from The City Quilter).

I also made an Angle cardi. This is my third, love this pattern.

And I'm almost done with this Debbie Bliss cardigan (the ribbon edge cardigan, but I don't think I'll add a ribbon):

We've also been preparing the nursery. I cannot tell you how excited we are to get it all done! I'm covering a bumper with the cutest planet fabric (seen above), and making a sling baby carrier with some japanese robot fabric. Oh, and I got some sunny yellow fabric to make curtains.
Look! We got a crib! (Seeing A Mingled Yarn's nursery inspired us, and she gave some useful tips).
We have a crib!
Like I said, crafting mojo is BACK!
