36 weeks!

I went to finish off my 36-week pregnancy draft and realized that I have not recorded anything over the last few weeks - whoops!  I can not believe that I am 36 weeks pregnant and at the same time I feel like I have been pregnant forever!

32 weeks - I had my 32-week doctor's appointment while Ian had his first day at Sprouts.  I had an alarming (from what I could gather) amount of sugar in my urine so I got to do another three-hour glucose test.  I would say that Ian and I have our glucose testing routine down (dare I say we are experts?).  I did not feel as good this time around but my numbers were actually lower.

33 weeks - I bought my first pair of maternity leggings!  They are glorious.  I am pretty much wearing dresses to school at this point so it is great to have a pair of leggings to wear that fit!  

34 weeks - I don't have any specific memory of anything special happening this week.  I think we had interviews at school - I got asked every 20 minutes if I was okay - I just laugh.  I am either having an easy pregnancy or other pregnant woman play the pregnancy card way too often.

We also found out somewhere along the way that Ian did not have shingles but potentially impetigo.  So I have been doing laundry like crazy (I was doing tons of laundry when we thought it was shingles).  At this point whatever is on his arm has been there for at least 2 months and we probably went an entire month before we tried to treat it so I think whatever it is I am not going to get.  But we are trying to be responsible adults so the laundry parties continue.  

35 weeks - Pi Day happened.  I ate so much pie - it was ridiculous.  The very sweet Math Department also threw me a baby shower/ special lunch on Pi Day so it was extra special.  They got me "Introductory Calculus for Infants" and everyone signed the front cover.  Hands down my favorite baby book so far.  Hopefully my kid will have it memorized at an early age and then can read it to himself.  I also worked on finding a long term sub.  

The little man's first Pi Day (the shirt reads, "QT Pi" when not reflected in the mirror).

We are still in a state of the unknown as far as the next few months.  We don't have a plan for post-May.  And my type A planner self is trying to be okay with it - or at least patient.  We haven't taken any birth or infant classes.  We haven't installed a car seat (or even taken it out of the box for that matter).  We haven't picked a name or washed a single item of baby clothes.  We don't know what a job for Ian or health insurance looks like for us after June.  We could be living anywhere in a few months.  
Nevertheless, God has a little boy for us to love and raise for His Glory.  God is good and He is faithful.

36 weeks 1 day - waiting for my workout buddy
