35.5 weeks - the end is in sight!
As the pregnancy is rolling to a close, I am feeling pretty lucky with my symptoms.  I didn't start swelling until week 32, and even that...

Story
Introduction
Rebecca (Roush) Brown is a chemist and lifetime knitter. She graduated from Wellesley College in 2006 and earned her PhD in Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology from Harvard Medical School in 2011.  Her dissertation research focused on  mechanistic enzymology, the study of how proteins make and break chemical bonds.  Rebecca has been knitting since she was 10 and started sharing her knitting online in 2008 with her knitting blog ChemKnits (www.chemknits.com), named to combine her two greatest passions.  Among many non-chemistry knitting designs,  she has created a series of molecule-based knitting charts and patterns including a Caffeine Coffee Cozy, Resveratrol Wine Cozy, and Hangover Beer Cozy (featuring ibuprofen and the ethanol metabolism pathway).  Today the ChemKnits brand has swept across the internet from video tutorials to articles on several different platforms.  

"I started designing molecule knitting patterns shortly after starting my knitting blog ChemKnits to justify the tagline "a biochemist's knitting perspective." Before I knew it, I had formed a knitting chart for the amino acid histidine. One molecule led to another, and suddenly I had drawn dozens of molecule knitting charts. As a chemist, its very special for me to be able to create meaningful or even whimsical molecules because despite how important they are to our lives, since they are too small to see we often neglect to think about them. king molecule knitting patterns shortly after starting my knitting blog ChemKnits to justify the tagline "a biochemist's knitting perspective."
