I made an ANGEL before I gave BIRTH

I had a complicated pregnancy so I have to stay in bed for months. I have always been an active person and it really bored me to death staying in bed doing practically nothing. One day, after my prenatal, we went to a mall to buy something. I stumble upon a store which sells various art craft projects. I had fun looking at the various cross stitch designs and thought of making one. I started my cross stitching when my tummy was only three months and I swore to finish it before I gave birth. I work on it everyday and it kept me busy for months, five months to be exact. My husband had it framed and put it in the baby room. My 22" x 31" framed cross stitch project has become the center of attraction in the baby room. Everybody can't help but notice the cute angel design I made. I will keep it as long as I can or even hand that down to my daughter for it reminds me of my pregnancy and the birth of my only child. When you were pregnant, are you at home or at work? If at home, what kept you busy when you were pregnant? What are the things that reminds you of your pregnancy?
