Hello, Third Trimester!

I'm 27 weeks and I'm officially in the THIRD trimester!!  Seriously, I can't believe how time flies!  I am still feeling great but I'm ready for time to SLOW down!  I feel somewhat prepared for Carson but when I start talking to other mommas, I start feeling kind of anxious.  I have a feeling that I'll never feel totally prepared and I'm starting to finally be (somewhat) ok with that! 

According to the Bump, Carson is now the size of Cauliflower.  I think I might create my own food comparison chart because the foods on the Bump are rarely apetizing!  Measurement and weight estimates are the same as the past couple weeks.  You can read some of my other updates here!

How far along? 27 weeks....starting out the third trimester!
Total weight gain: I'll say somewhere between 10-15 but I honestly have no idea.  My next appointment isn't scheduled until mid-March so you can all be in suspense until then!
Maternity clothes? For shizzle!  (Yea, I just went there...)  I love my maternity jeggings from Old Navy and really wish I could wear jeans to work!  My work pants aren't so bad but I miss my Express dress pants! (scroll down for TWO new bump pics!)
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: Pretty good but in the mornings I feel either super awake or super tired - it is never consistent!
Best moment this week: We got a TON done in the nursery after our trip to Ikea this past Saturday!  I will be posting another nursery update soon!  If you missed the last update, you can read it here.
Miss Anything? Not this week :) 
Movement: Carson is a little less active, but still has kicking sprees (which I still love).  I'm hoping to schedule a 3D/4D ultrasound so I can see him moving in there!
Food cravings: I've been eating tons of bananas but I don't think it's a craving, I'm trying to avoid more charlie horses!  I also HAD to have a DQ twist cone dipped in chocolate the other night.  It was delish!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Gender: Baby BOY Carson!
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: A symptom I've had that I had forgotten to mention was acid reflux!  I've heard this is the same thing as heartburn but I really have never had either so I don't know!  All I know is that sometimes when I am in bed after eating a snack (aka every night), my throat feels burn-y (nice vocab, eh?) and I sometimes feel like I'm going to throw up in my mouth.  So lovely!  Luckily it goes away if I drink a bunch of water or just walk around a bit!
Belly Button in or out? VERY shallow innie...... :/
Wedding rings on or off? on and loose still!  I'm paranoid that they're going to get tight and stuck so I'm constantly messing with them!
Happy or Moody most of the time: SO happy!
Looking forward to: getting the call for the recliner we ordered!  I am SO impatient because I just want to set it up and sit in it!  I called the store to check on our order a few days ago and they said it looks like it will arrive to their store on Thursday (today)!  Fingers crossed...

And now for my newest bathroom bump shot!  People at work have finally started to say that I look pregnant and they can tell I "popped"!  :)
27 Weeks!
First front shot :)

You should SO make up your own food chart, I hated the one on the Bump too!

Acid Reflux and Heartburn are one and the same.... just a medical term and a laymans term =)

I had it so bad too (as you know) and people always say that it means you are having a boy, so we can say they were right for us!!!
