Here we are in the "home stretch", as people tell me. I'm 28 weeks along, only 12 to go. I'm starting to get more uncomfortable and sitting for a long period of time is getting harder and harder, especially at work. I have to slouch in my seat a ton just so I don't feel all scrunched up but of course, that is starting to hurt my back. Other than that, I've been feeling great.
We have finally bought some gear. My mom took us out and got us to buy a stroller and car seat,
and a Pack N Play.
We're quite proud of our purchases, and if we get nothing else, we at least have a way to move the baby around and a place for him to sleep.
I took my glucose test on Wednesday of last week. All I heard before taking this test is how awful it is. People talked up the horror of it so much I was expecting the worst. Turns out that it was nothing! I show up and they give me this small bottle of some orange drink that I had to get down in 5 minutes. I got it down in like 90 seconds because it tasted exactly like this stuff!
The annoying part was having to just sit there for an hour before they could do my blood draw. At least Brady came along to keep me company. No results on the test yet, by the way.
Here's the belly shot, taken Wednesday,
On to fun things we've done. Well, we went to a fun movie event with our friends Brian and Kat. They invited us to go see this:It was laugh out load hilarious. If you don't know what it is, Riff Trax are these three guys that starred in Mystery Science Theater 3000, and they now "riff" on more modern movies, but for Halloween they did this Vincent Price movie "House on Haunted Hill" and was broadcast throughout theaters. They also riffed on a couple of old, rather random, short films, from the 70's. Awesomeness.
Story: After arriving at the theater after we had dinner, we all used the bathroom. While in the bathroom, Brian saw a man wearing a fanny pack, he walked out and punched Brady, "slug-bug" style and they decided to begin the game that you can punch someone if you see a fanny pack. Kat and I walked out of the bathroom and we were told about this and Kat pointed at a guy in the distance asking "like that guy?" We all cracked up, since this was a completely different guy than who Brian originally saw. What are the odds? Let the games begin.
We've also seen a few good movies. In the theater! In the past month we've seen,
The TownThe Social NetworkWaiting for SupermanWe both cried at this last one. It was sad and frustrating. However it was really good and I recommend seeing it. I think Brady and I talked about education, schools, and our own school experiences for two hours after walking out of the theater.
