Today is a great day

Why is (was, it's almost over now) a today a great day you ask??? Because

1. It's March 1 which means dreary, dreadful February is gone and spring is just around the corner. Thank goodness. I have so much respect for you folks who live in colder climates, I can't stand it.

2. Today starts the 3RD TRIMESTER, yay!!!! Or holy crap, we're having a baby in a couple months...maybe a little bit of both.

To celebrate, I'm going to try to do this little quiz each week, along with a belly pic. Although you don't get a belly pic this week because the one Rich took was from a funny angle that accentuated my under-the-sports-bra side fat roll so I deleted it. I'm holding on to the vanity as long as possible!

How far along: 27 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: up 23 lbs
Maternity clothes: I have 3 pairs of maternity work pants, and they're starting to get pretty snug around the belly area but hopefully it'll be warm enough to switch to dresses and skirts soon.
Stretch marks: one per boob, and they're on the bottom so you can't really see them so do I even have to count them?
Sleep: Eh, it's ok. I wake up to pee and turn over a lot. My lower back and hips get pretty sore at night, even with a pillow between my legs. Overall I'm still getting plenty of sleep though.
Best moment this week: running a 5K, ok jogging really really slowly a "5K" that turned out to be 3.5 miles. I'll post the race recap tomorrow.
Movement: I would have to say I get a lot more squirms and wiggles than actual punches or kicks. I love putting my hand on my belly and feeling little bumps and thumps.
Food cravings: Ham sandwiches lately
Gender: Girl!
Labor Signs: None thank goodness, just a few Braxton-Hicks contractions every few days.
Belly Button in or out: In. I've got a pretty good innie so I'm kind of doubting it'll pop out.
What I miss: margaritas, champagne, that's really all I can think of now. I've had sushi and deli meat and just about whatever else I've wanted to eat this past trimester.
What I am looking forward to: going to AR next weekend for a baby shower
Weekly Wisdom: Hmm, I got nothing
Milestones: 2/3 of the way there!

Yea! Almost there! Its weird how one day you don't have a baby then the next you do. I've found it strange both times.

Only two stretch marks. Not too shabby.
Li was tea and/or rootbeer. MM wasn't cravings but aversions to cheese and chicken.
Mine never popped bellybutton never popped out either. Was kinda sad about it b/c I think that's hilarious.

congrats! the baby is going to be here before you know it. cute quiz. it will be fun to see the progressions of those answers. 3rd tri is when the baby starts really getting big. everything is developed now, they just need mass. which makes your belly do funny things.

i think the underboob stretch marks are what we really need photographic evidence of. i think pregnant women are just beautiful.
