27 Weeks and 3rd Trimester!

Here I am at 27 weeks, with exactly 3 months to go, on the first day of the Third Trimester!

How big is Baby? 15 inches, 2.4 pounds, and the size of an eggplant!
Total weight gain/loss: According to my scale at home, 15 pounds.
Maternity clothes? 95% of what I wear. I am loving jeans. I am still wearing my regular scrubs though, but I may have to move up to a bigger size soon. :-(
Stretch marks? Not yet (although I might have one starting) :(
Sleep: I'm sleeping ok, but having a hard time getting comfy, so I wake up a lot on my back. With my hips hurting so much it is hard to lie on my side.
Best moment this week: Being pregnant on my birthday! I've prayed so hard that day would come! Don't lose faith girls.
Movement: LOVING it! He is VERY active! In the past two weeks he has taken up residence in my ribs and now he is ALWAYS up there!
Food cravings: I could eat ANYTHING right now. Although I've really wanted some fruit and veggies this week.
Gender: It's A BOY!!!!!! Nicholas Allen Ledford.
Labor Signs: none, thank goodness!
Belly Button in or out? That's another thing. I can tell it is starting to move towards the outside. My laparoscopic scar at the base of my belly button that has always been on the inside is now on the outside (you can see it on my abdomen, not just inside my belly button anymore)! AH! It's getting smaller and flatter.
What I am looking forward to: My 28 week dr appt on Monday morning. I have my glucose test, but other than that I am excited to hear his little heartbeat.
Milestones: Third Trimester!!!!!! I can't believe we are 2/3 of the way there. Amazing!
