27 Weeks -- Questions Abound!!

Questions for you out there reading this... when do I need to schedule maternity pictures? What baby must-have item am I forgetting?  Are metal detectors safe for pregnant women? When you get your car seat inspected do they give you a certificate or something to show the hospital? Any tips or questions to ask potential care providers for our baby? To doula or not to doula?

As you can see, we're surrounded with lots of questions right now. We've been trying to tackle a few items each week and we're going strong but there are still a lot left to be answered. It's a this point that I am SO GLAD we started planning/buying/budgeting as early as we did.

How far along? 27 Weeks (almost to the 3rd trimester)
Total weight gain/loss: 5 lbs
Maternity clothes? Yep.
Sleep: Still sleeping great thanks to my pregnancy husband refers to it now as the best $50 we have EVER spent. I will say it has bought me many hours of much-needed sleep!
Best moment this week: Getting two impromptu days to work from home due to a problem with the air quality/ventilation/soot blowing everywhere. Regardless, I loved being at home and working from my couch with the boys next to me and Netflix on. Oh, and having some quality time with J this week. It was nice to be together with nothing to do.
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my belly! Iced Tea! My mom!
Movement: Yes!
Food cravings: Egg muffins, Spaghetti O's (welcome back) and cereal.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope.
Have you started to show yet: Yes.
Gender: Boy!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In, but getting shallow!!
Wedding rings on or off? On, but getting snug!!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, happy, happy!
Looking forward to: Arizona!!!! It is approaching so quickly! Time is flying!

And, holy snow storm today... this is my backyard!!

So not ready for old man winter!
