28 weeks

How far along: 28w or 7 months! I'm officially into the third trimester. 12 weeks to go! YAY!!! 
How big is Baby: Baby is almost 3 lbs and around 15 inches long.
Maternity Clothes: Yep. I still have a few pre-pregnancy shirts I can wear with a tank top underneath.
Sleep: Sleep? What sleep?! It hurts. That sums it up pretty well. I get up at least once every night to pee now and I usually cannot get back to sleep for at least an hour after that. Dang insomnia. And now add in the horrible heartburn... forget it.
Movement: All the time! He is very active. His movements are getting really strong and I'm feeling and seeing new movements. Sometimes it's kicks, sometimes hiccups, sometimes rolls, sometimes I have no clue what he is doing haha. I never get sick of watching my belly move :)
Food cravings: Everything! I am always hungry.
Food aversions: None.
Gender: It's a BOY!
Symptoms: Heartburn/indigestion. Absolutely starving hungry, all the time! Emotional. I started crying the other day for no apparent reason. Exhaustion and achy feet, if I do too much. LOTS of movement. A big belly. Peeing every five two minutes. 
Nursery Progress:  Nothing new this week, but the painter will be finishing up on May 19th.
Best moment this week: Seeing my family this weekend. Everyone is so excited for Grayson's arrival.
What I am looking forward to: Our 3D ultrasound on Friday with our families. I'm SO excited!!

We had a growth scan on Friday. Everything looked great and my placenta has moved like they wanted, so no placenta previa to worry about. We could see his eyes opening and closing, his lips puckering and that he has Nick's nose. He was head down, as usual. I figured so because I feel his kicks up above my belly button and I feel his head down low on either side. He weighed approximately 2 lbs 11 oz. and was in the 75th percentile for overall size. His femur was in the 95th percentile. He has long legs like his Mom :) My amniotic fluid level looked good at 18.5. The tech said that the normal range was 5 to 25. We got a few pictures:

 His profile.

 Looking at us.
