We went to Alkmaar today, mostly to get informed about Bernina sewing machines. ( but when able I always like to visit fabric shops to collect some fabric to sew clothes and quilt, lol ) Anyway…. We went to Alkmaar, it is hot and humid today and me being pregnant doesn’t help the cause so to speak… We went and found a closed door, the shop owner was on a vacation and will not return before the 2nd of August! This means
1) I came for nothing… grmbl
2) I still have no info on Bernina sewing machines
3) I had some time to do some fabric shopping! YAY!

We triedto find a nice summer coat for little princess but well… summer being almost over also means  that there are only winter-coats in store…. which means I have to sew one myself… not that I mind!
My girl being crazy about green at the moment, and me liking red and checkers… made me go for green checkers/red checker/ red solid fabric, red and green ribbons and for the lining I am going to use a green with white polka-dot fabric…. It is all hanging out to dry, pictures will follow real soon.
So far about today.

Yesterday an uncle and aunt of mine came to visit us, we had a great time till…. my uncle decided to go play with princess on the swing…. he told her to keep both hands on to the swing but she decided against that…. now she has one tooth less in her little mouth… I could cry! She is only 3 ( getting 4 in October ) which means that she will have to walk around with a hole in her teeth for the next 3 or 4 years! Luckily she has her child’s teeth and not her grownup teeth….
For the rest everything went great, we had a good talk, a great laugh and sooooooooo much fun! It was great they were here!
So far yesterday…

Monday we had to visit the midwifepraktice, to check up on the baby-progress…. you know what doptone is? In case you don’t; it is a little device that lets you hear the heart of your unborn baby….
She – the midwife – triedfor several minutes to find the heartbeat but couldn’t find one….. I don’t know what this means…. am I still pregnant of this miracle baby or am I going to lose it? The midwife told me it is common  that you can’t hear a baby’s heart-tone when  you’re overweight, “only” 13 weeks pregnant and have a whom that isn’t tilted but standing up right…..
Now we have to go to the hospital again, tomorrow, to get an ultrasound to see if there is still a baby and if so if there is one or two and how far I am in my pregnancy…

Keep your fingers crossed for us tomorrow, And if everything is still there where it should be I will share pictures of our ultrasound tomorrow….
