Symptoms: Heartburn has been tolerable with my trusty TUMS although I know it's only going to get worse over the course of the next couple of months. Hip pain is horrible- after spending so much time on my feet this past weekend, I definitely felt it and spent most of Sunday with my feet up. Definitely walking like I'm pregnant now.
Maternity Clothes: Officially grown out of all of my "first trimester" clothes. Size small tops from the GAP are too tight and my size small pants and leggings are getting a bit snug, too. Santa is bringing me a few new basic long sleeve tops for Christmas and I'm excited to spend the rest of my pregnancy in leggings and tunics.
Gender: All boy.
Movement: Mr. AP felt M3 for the first time early last week while we were sitting on the couch watching a movie. With this being our last baby, I'll never forget how excited he gets when he's able to feel him wiggling around in there. It's such a sweet moment!
Sleep: What's that? Pregnancy insomnia is in full swing and every morning I'm awake like clockwork at 3am. Most mornings I have difficulty falling back asleep and will just lay in bed mindlessly playing on my phone until the boys are up for good at 7am.
Cravings: Spicy, spicy, spicy!
Thinking Names: Mr. AP jokingly refuses to talk any more about names until 2014. He prefers to stick with tradition which means we don't really discuss names until the third trimester. It drives me out of my ever-loving mind!
Funny Moments: Whenever I ask Carter about the baby in my belly he momentarily freaks out thinking that I actually ate a baby. It's both funny and horrifying at the same time.
Not So Funny Moments: Feeling winded after walking up the mall stairs and realizing that January will be here before we know and that means we'll have a new baby here in three months. Holy crap.
Nesting: Starting to think about the boys bunking together and what we'll do with Maclane and the crib situation. Not really thinking about it too much because it's stressing me out.
Best Moments this week: Feeling M3 on the regular, throwing one heck of a Cookies & Cocktails party and our first snowfall! What a way to end 2013.
Looking Forward To: Our anatomy scan tomorrow!
