Doctor’s Appointment: Glucose testing was a bust :-(  Have to start monitoring my glucose levels and tracking my diet!  (again more to come on this)
Movement: Baby is most active at night... or maybe I just feel it more when I'm laying down!  Feeling little kicks, can feel baby rolling around, changing positions!  It's amazing and weird!
Belly Button:   soooo stretched!  still an innie!
Gender:  the great mystery!!!
What I’m looking forward to:  thinking a lot about how exciting it will be when baby is born and the dr announces "it's a  _____!!!!"

14 weeks vs 27 weeks!

27 weeks

How far along: 27 Weeks
Baby's size: About 16 inches, 2.5 lbs!  The size of head of cauliflower!
Sleep:  Apparently my snoring has increased this past week.... hubby has woken me up a few times in the night 'you're killin me'!!!  Started wearing breathe right strips, which seem to be helping!
Maternity Clothes:  skirts, skirts, skirts!  elastic!!!!
Food cravings:   craving chai tea lattes everyday!  I have been extra sleepy this week!  (probably because someone is waking me up during the night ;-)
Food aversions:   doing good, knock on wood!
Symptoms I have:  still having braxton hicks!  my lower back/ tailbone has been extra tender, I assume from sitting at my desk job most of the day.  I try to get up frequently for breaks to relieve some of the pressure.  Hands and feet are a little swollen!  I had to stop wearing my wedding band :(
Doctor’s Appointment: Today!!!  June 8th, glucose testing! Wish me luck!
Movement: Baby is quite the little gymnast in there!!!  I feel baby all day long and at night!!!  Love feeling the little kicks and jabs!  Although a few times I felt it to my bladder... not so much fun! 
Belly Button:   still a very stretched innie!  I wonder if it will pop out!  
Gender:  the great mystery!!!
What I’m looking forward to:  baby being born and (hopefully) being placed immediately on my chest!!!  I cannot wait to meet this new light in my life!!! 
What I miss:   still missing sleep!  and getting up and down easily!  It's becoming increasingly difficult going from sitting/ laying down to standing!!!

I neglected to take a good bathroom photo this week... here's a few snapped at my desk!  ;-)
(yes, this is the same outfit I wore last week.... getting limited on my options from week to week!!! I'll try and do better next week!)
