27 Weeks: Third Trimester!!!

Woohoo!!!!!!  Party time over here today! 

Fireworks seem appropriate for my little July firecracker!

I can't believe I'm officially in the home stretch!  The third trimester!  It feels surreal to have just a short 12 weeks left to go. 

How far along?: 27 Weeks, 91 days to go!
How big is baby?:   Apparently baby is still the size of a cabbage.  She now weighs over two pounds and continues to put on healthy baby fat.  She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now.
Any appointments or updates this week?: I have another appointment this afternoon to follow up on some bladder pain and discomfort that I'm still having.  I took some antibiotics last week but things aren't 100% cleared up, so I want to make sure something else isn't going on.  I will also be doing the 1 hour glucose challenge test this week!  Let's hope I pass with flying colors.
Body changes?:  Just the ever-growing belly!
Maternity clothes?:  Yep - I'm excited because I ordered two dresses to wear to my shower and my niece and nephew's baptism.  I can't wait for them to come in the mail! 
Best moment last week?: It's got to be hitting the third trimester today!  I'm so excited about that.
Food cravings?: Still stuck on the sweets.  I hope to cut back before my glucose test!
Symptoms?:  Besides the unfortunate symptoms I already mentioned,  I've been noticing more back pain recently. 
Exercise?: I went for a walk the other day, did 2 laps around my neighborhood.  Life has just been too hectic this week to do much.  I was on my feet for about 4 hours on Saturday though.
What I miss?:  Sleeping comfortably - yep, still this.  And sleeping the whole night through.
What I'm looking forward to?: Visiting my brother- and sister-in-law this weekend to meet my new baby niece and nephew for their baptism!

What our little girl looks like this week:
