I'm so sorry you're having a hard time Leslie, I hope they don't have to keep you in!
I made a knitted blanket from lots of little squares (I got the Debbie Bliss knitting for beginners baby patterns book - it's great - but maybe hard to get the right wool in alaska?) I cheated and had my mum sew them together for me though as I just got So frustrated with that bit! It was it not having a right/wrong side I couldn't get my head round (I've embroidered for years). Mum did it by deciding on a right/wrong side, then sewing them together with each square alternating in the way the stitches run so that it doesn't pull out of shape, she used blanket stitch, then she bought a piece of cotton material and a ribbon and backed it with the cotton and sewed the ribbon round the edge. Hope that makes sense. It looks great!
 

I've since got a different book of DB's and it has a blanket made from all one colour in it edged with ribbon.. I wish I'd seen that one first!!

Celia, that's the same blanket I'm making! We have awesome yarn stores up here. The yarn was really expensive (175.00!) I'm thinking now how many blankets I could of bought, not the point though. I'll probably hand the blanket over to a friend for the square sewing. The cotton backing sounds really perfect. Thanks for the tip. Thanks everyone too for your well wishing. I'll be fine. Bored and fat, but fine. You guys know me, smiles, smiles, smiles!! Leslie

Was just coming back to add that you're such a strong positive person I'm sure you'll get through the boring bedrest/being in hospital if you need to.
 
you can stay at home with your own things around you though!
 

Holycow that's some expensive yarn over there!!
 
It was 2.50 a ball for me here!
I've done quite a few of her patterns from that book now, the sewing together Does get easier for the actual clothing bits. And knitting can be a great way to pass the time as you can still feel like you're doing something productive. Just think of how everytime you use it you'll be wrapping your little girl with something that was made with so much love in each stitch!

Oh Leslie-what a bummer...but good new on your little pilates girl! Have your friend come and give you the back rubs-that sounds great! You can probably get really into four or five different soaps and keep us updated on the wild plots-ha!! At least at 20 weeks you're half way there!!!!
