27 weeks and helllooo 3rd tri!

Dress: Old Navy | Cardigan: Limited

You guys?  THIRD TRIMESTER.  In less than 13 weeks we'll finally get to meet this little tie breaker.  We are beyond excited about it. Lately I've been craving that newborn smell.  That itty, bitty baby that cuddles into your neck and sleeps softly on your chest.  I miss it so much.  I live for those moments and I'm so excited to experience them again with this baby.

I dream about her often.  Yes, HER.  All of my dreams have been about a baby girl.  I'd say I dream about her at least twice a week.  When I wake though, I mostly call the baby "he"... I don't know why.  Maybe because Carter swears it's a boy and says "he" all the time... I don't know.  I try to use both pronouns as much as possible though, just so the kids know it could be a boy OR a girl {and to not offend the babe, of course ;}

Less than 90 days until we know for sure.... SQUEEEE!

Pregnancy: 27 weeks {holy crap!)

Weight Gain: 15 pounds

Sleep: I've actually slept great this week! Woo hoo!

Gender: We're team green, so we'll find out in September!

Names: Reid Joseph or Emerson Mae {see the name post here!}

Feeling: I still have severe rib pain, mostly on my left side.  I'm also having trouble leaning forward to eat, which means more food stains on the top of my belly now. Awesome. ;)

Health:  Swelling is getting progressively worse, but it's still not terrible.  Oh, and I eat Tums like its my job.  Along with Zantac 150 twice a day, it's barely working.  I may need something stronger soon.

Movement: I'm feeling very consistent movement now and know exactly when this baby's active periods are.  He/she is very quiet at night, so fingers crossed that they are like this outside of mama's belly as well! ;)

Belly: Measuring about 2 weeks ahead right now, still no linea negra and my belly button has been out for awhile.  Here's my standard shot...
And for belly comparison, here's my 27 week belly shot with Brynn!

Next Appointment: OB, Glucose Tolerance Test {again} & Ultrasound: This Friday, June 22nd at 27w5d
