Third trimester!

Where has the time gone?! Can't believe I have 12 weeks (give or take) left of being pregnant with this little (err, big - more on that later) man. It's true that second pregnancies just fly by and we have a ton to do in the next few months, but I'm thankful and excited to meet this sweet boy. We had a good doctors appointment after our follow-up ultrasound this morning so all is well in babyland. 

How far along?: 28 weeks
How big is baby?: 2 lbs 9 oz according to the ultrasound. He's in the 73% which means they had to have a little chat with me because he's measuring big, but there's so much room for error and time for all that to change, so I'm just glad he's healthy. In the grand scheme of things, it's awesome to know that he'd be 2 1/2 lbs if he was born now!
Weight gain?: I *think* I saw the number on the screen, and I think it was 16lbs or so, so I'm feeling good about it. I'm just going to pretend that's what it is regardless. 
Stretch marks?: nope
Maternity clothes?: I bought some hand-me-downs and a new maxi dress so I'm feeling like my wardrobe is refreshed!
Sleep?: not great, between allergies and frequent urination and heartburn
Best moment last week?: today, finding out the placenta previa has completely resolved itself
Food cravings?: nothing to note
Symptoms?: I have pubic symphysis diastasis which basically means it feels like someone kicked me in the vagina. Apparently it will only get worse and the only resolution is to have the baby. Yay!
Exercise?: prenatal yoga is going well and I'm excited to be cleared for all stretches & positions (bring on the squats!)
Gender?: still very much a boy, she confirmed today!
Movement?: often, but still not painful or annoying. So far he's breech but they don't worry too much until 34w so I have plenty of time for him to swim around. 
Belly button?: sort-of in ... Barely
What I miss?: beer
Labor signs?: lots of Braxton hicks but that's it
What I'm looking forward to?: *hopefully* date night tonight to celebrate all our good news
