Welding and pregnant

I’m 5 weeks pregnant today! The little one is about the size of a sweet pea (5mm) and has a heart beat. At the moment pregnancy is like a slightly rough day with fibro, only a lot more exciting.

Today was sculpture class, which makes me feel so contented and at home. I learned to weld! We’re starting with brazing welding with the oxy-acetylene torch. I’m glad I’m pregnant in this class instead of painting – the fumes in painting can be a big issue as well as skin absorption. I made this little critter for my garden:

I have no idea how it’s all going to work out, but to spend time with other artists in a studio learning new skills makes my heart happy. And we have the best tutors in this class. Something good will come of it. Tonight and tomorrow are HVNSA and DI meets, something also very exciting and at times anxiety producing. Hoping we create something good out of that too. 🙂
