Hump Day Bump Day - 27 weeks... Welcome to the THIRD TRIMESTER!

I can't believe the third trimester is already here. 12 weeks seems like such a long time but I know it will fly by just like the last two trimesters. The only difference is, at the end of this countdown I'll have a bouncing baby girl! AHHHH!!
This week has been pretty uneventful, but great none the less. I still can't get enough of all Keelin's bumps, rolls and kicks and every day is filled with tons of them! I'm excited for the time when I can tell exactly how she's positioned. She's generally all over the place so I don't have the slightest idea.
Monday is my next check up and I get to take the glucose test {yipee!} Yes, there is an oh-so-yummy-looking bottle of orange kool-aid shiz in the frig waiting for me! Cheers folks!
I've been having a little more back pain recently so I ran by Babies R Us and picked up a Boppy Support in Style Maternity Band. I wasn't sure how much it would support but I really love it.
OH, and I also did A LOT of fun crafts for the nursery this past weekend that I'll be sharing soon but for now... pictures and stats!

*How far along? 27 weeks 2 days today
*Total weight gain/loss: I'll fill you in with an actual number after my apt. on Monday. Seems to be easier to update from the doc's scale. That way I don't think about it as much either!
*How big is baby? Head of cauliflower {around 2.5 lbs}
*Maternity clothes? absolutely! Even got the rest of my ginormous OLD NAVY order in the mail this week! I'm good to go!
*Stretch Marks? not yet... lathering, lathering, lathering!
*Best moment this week? all the movement and having a full weekend of crafty nursery fun!
*Movement? tons! She's all over the place and has specific times during the day when she has a little dance party.
*Food Cravings? One of the girls at work brought some chili to the office that smelled SO GOOD so I went home that day after work and made an enormous pot {recipe post coming soon!}. Now that I've eaten it all {don't worry, I let Z have some too!} I kind of want to make it again. :)
*What I miss: Sleeping soundly through the night. Not because of the pee breaks, those are actually less frequent than I thought they'd be, but I have been adjusting a lot to help eliminate back pain. My boppy pillow is still really amazing though and a big help keeping me comfortable. I'm thankful I snagged it early, especially for this last leg of the race!
*What I am looking forward to: my appointment on Monday!
*Nausea/Vomiting? none at all! Although I do get random smacks of motion sickness in the elevators at work from time to time. Strange...
*Labor signs? nope... hold off for at least 10-or-so more weeks little girl!
*Gender? GIRL!
*Belly Button in or out? in and STILL stretching... getting fairly flat actually!
*Wedding rings on or off? on
*Sleep? shifty-shifterson!
*Weekly Wisdom: Embrace even the smallest "special" moment. I can't help but stop whatever I'm doing just to drink in the moment every time I feel Keelin moving about!
Until next time...
