What an Astronomer Studies

Here are my updates.

1st - how I feel - kind of like I have been hit by a truck. I think I have aged 40 years in the past 2 weeks. I am busy as can be and pass out between 7:30 and 8:00 at night. This is going to be a long month.
2nd - went to the doc today - I was a little nervous because she feels different, not kicking as hard. Her heart rate was 148 (good). She is measuring 37 weeks (big but within a normal range). Then I asked him to tell me what position she was in. The pushing did not feel pleasant. Result? She is breech. So in two weeks I get another sonogram (another one to be disappointed in I am sure). After that? Who knows what they will say. They gave me a flu shot today and I never even felt it - bonus!
3rd - I love the kids in my class - I am trying to teach them about scientists. So I gave them the names of some special scientists and they had to figure out what they studied. Since I teach 1st grade, I had to give hints. So when I asked what an astronomer studies, I had to say it was outside but it was not a plant or an animal. I got blank stares so I said if you went out at night and looked up you could see what they studied. One little girl said - "Oh!! Jesus!! They study Jesus!" You learn something new everyday.
4th - I leave you with this picture - me in my classroom reading to my little friends from best bud's moms group. It was a school playdate. I have never seen myself from this angle before. Hello BIG baby belly! Polka dots are not my friend. Oh well! At least I wore leggings so no one got a show.
Have a happy Friday!!! Best bud is working her little heart out for the CUTEST shower for me this weekend. I will post pictures soon!
