Third Trimester

I can’t believe we are already entering the third trimester. The time has flown by so quickly. We have our baby shower this weekend in California and are still working on the little peanut’s nursery. I will share both afterwards. I promise! 
HOW FAR ALONG? 27 weeks
TOTAL WEIGHT GAIN: 13 lbs (as of last week)
MATERNITY CLOTHES? Yes, a few items but I can still wear a lot of my regular non-maternity dresses and blouses..
BABY’S POSITION? Head down. 
STRETCH MARKS? Not as of yet. Fingers crossed because I am horrible at remembering or just too tied to apply cream on every evening. 
MOVEMENT: Yes, but not as much as I thought I would be experiencing at this point. However, I have a placenta anterior and with that the midwife as assured me that feeling less is normal until the little one is much bigger due to the placenta being attached in the front (belly area). Regardless, I love all the little movements I do experience. 
SLEEP: Ever since I ordered a body pillow, I am sleeping like a baby, but I still catch myself on my back a few times a night. 
FOOD CRAVINGS: Nothing in particular. I have been eating a lot of cereal to satisfy a sweet tooth. 
SYMPTOMS? Cramps in my calves during the middle of the night and they are the plain out horrible. Some nights I jump up when I feel one coming on and try rubbing it to prevent it was getting any worse. 
GENDER: It is a surprise. Really! We don’t even know ourselves. I have had a feeling since a few weeks in that it is a boy, but with time, we will know. 
NAME: We are pretty set on a boy’s name and torn between a few for a girl. Thank goodness we still have about 13 weeks.
