27 weeks 3rd Trimester!

A lot of milestones today!  I am officially in my third trimester!   Star is over 2 pounds and around 15 inches long.  I still can't believe something that big is in my belly.   When she moves she doesn't feel that big but I am definitely feeling more and more these days.  The last couple of weeks I have really been into oreo cookies.  Rarely do you see the small 6 packs of them and I was wanting them really bad last week at work so I walked to the grocery store and purchased a regular size bag of them and put them out on my desk for others to share.  They were gone in a couple of hours.  I secretly regret sharing them now as I want more oreos! 

Today, I went walking at lunch with a couple of co-workers and stopped at a convenience store and they had a six pack of them (the little snack size) so I am good for today!  My other must have for the last couple of months is milk.  I go through a little over a gallon a week just by myself.  My favorite thing to do when I get home is have a glass of milk which usually turns into two glasses which then leads to three.  You know what they say "one milk, two milk, three milk, FLOOR!" or is that Tequila they were talking about? 

Anyway...I am happy to report that my "bestie" J is back in town and I am happier than ever with him by my side.  He got Baby C a cute little onezie from his Phish concerts...

This baby is gonna like Phish, I am convinced that I will be the outcast in our home.  The dog is named after a Phish song, the babies wardrobe is half Phish (exaggeration) and my husband...well, you know the story there.  I started making a lullaby play list for Star.  We are putting an ipod in her room so we can play soft music.  J and I are combining 100 Baby Einstein songs and some of our favorite music selections that are soft melodies to make one play list for her.  It's turning out great so far, I have a feeling there will be a lot of Phish in the mix. 

Hoping to wrap up some projects this weekend.  I think we will get a lot done around the house which I am excited about.  As much as I want to get some projects out of the way I want to schedule some R&R time with my Jamie too.  I'm thinking dinner out one night and a lot of TV time.  I don't really care if we watch one of my shows or sports I just want to enjoy him being home.  It's been a couple of weeks since he felt Star move so hopefully he'll get to feel how big and strong she's getting. 

Sleep has been better the last couple of nights.  I was going to stay on the sofa when J came home the other night until he informed me that grown-ups sleep in beds.  So I brought all of my pillows up and managed to get good sleep two nights in a row.  Maybe I just needed him home?  Maybe my back brace is helping and I'm not in such pain anymore?  I have been feeling better at night but still need a little heating pad action on my back before sleeping. 

Lunch is over, better get back to work.  I am already excited for my Oreos I will have for my afternoon snack and there just happens to be milk in the refrigerator!  YAY!

Everything is better when the hubs is home! Wow, third trimester! That is awesome. Do you have a name yet? You do not have to share, just curious if you have one. I am not sure I will ever be able to settle on one. My dog has 50 names(nicknames)...why can't my baby! :O)
