27 weeks - is that 3rd trimester?

So according to my iPregnancy app, I am on the 1st day of my 3rd trimester. Buuuuuut, I read on, that I'm not considered in my 3rd trimester until next week (28 weeks). Pregnancy math is a mo fo

So because I am lame and didn't take an updated belly pic, here are the pics of the finished paint job. It turned out so good, and I'm SOOO happy with it. I do need to get one small lamp in there to add just a smidge more lightning.

Notice the giant giraffe? Troy can thank his beautiful Gma K for that :)

He's gonna be such a great daddy

How far along? 27 Weeks {possibly in my 3rd trimester, woo hoo!}

Baby's size? Troy Maximus is about 2 lbs and is 14.5 inches head to toe- about the size of a cauliflower head

Weight Gain? 15lbs, but I'll update that number next Tuesday. It's always a fun (or bad) surprise when I don't weigh myself at home and then see the weight number after a month

Stretch marks? Nope. I was talking to my mom about this the other week since I've heard it's all chalked up to genetics -- if your mom got them, so will you. I was checking out her tummy and she has non to the naked eye. If you look reeeeal close you can see 1, maybe 2 tiny little white ones right under her belly button

Belly button in or out? That bad boy is getting more and more shallow. I'm wondering if it's gonna pop out at all. My Bestie Jenni's did not, but I think my baby will be bigger than her's were, she's a tiny little thing. My pregnancy belly button ring is still in, but I can see the skin is getting thinner where the bar is. IF I have to take it out, I plan on just keeping the bar bell with me at all times and poking it through every 30 minutes or so. I'M NOT LOSING IT!!

Sleep? This week, sleep was eh. Due to my cold and lack of being able to breathe through my nose, I tossed and turned a lot.

Foods I am loving? My decaf mocha's duh! I've switched to tall's instead of grande's. Due to the fact I'm notictng my thighs are getting grande.

Foods I am hating? hmmm, really greasy foods are not looking too good these days

Best moment this week? Having the room all painted!! Now we can put up the decals. His room is coming together and it's crazy to think in 13 weeks he'll be here!

Movement? Oh yes! Movement with rolling and kicking and tumbling. I will most def miss those. However, I've heard once his bones really start to harden, I won't miss those jabs and kicks :P

Symptoms? My eyes have been really dry lately. Not sure if that has to do with my cold or pregnancy. Oh and my boobs and stomach itch like crazy, but I haven't scratched like I wanted to in fear of causing stretch marks. I just lube up the body and pound some more water

Gender? A future football star

What I miss? Having a nice cocktail at the end of the day if I choose. Oh and sleeping on my stomach

What I'm looking forward to? My babymoon next week and my baby shower in about 6 weeks!

Weekly Wisdom: Sometimes, it's okay to put your feet up and take it easy. Your body is growing another life and if going to the gym EVERY DAY just doesn't sound appeasing, then relax. You've earned it!

Milestone: Room being painted

Emotions: Sleepiness, really gassy lately, and I think the constipation is back. I'm still going strong with my water drinking, but maybe I'll up it a little.

I took my belly button ring out several weeks ago because it was starting to rip out...gross! but anyways, I only poke it through about once a week and its not growing in at all! So, don't worry, I think if you've had it for a long time then it's not going to grow over! Congrats on 3rd tri!

I thought it was all genetics too so I didn't do lotion, creams or anything when I was pregnant since my mom birthed four 9lb babies and doesn't have a single stretch mark...well I ended up getting some on my tatas, and inner thighs..lovely

LOVE the paint color! And I think dry eyes are a pregnancy thing; I've had the same problem, and I read in either the What to Expect book or the emails that it's a pregnancy symptom. It's funny how many weird things pop up during pregnancy!
