I don't want that. This is MY first baby. This is MY first pregnancy. I get to fully enjoy and experience every little part of this pregnancy because this baby...this one is MINE. Its not going to someone else, its staying in my arms.

Its nice having someone I can talk to and ask questions and actually enjoy pregnancy with, that doesn't think "oh she has been through this before, why is she complaining?".
Awww this brought tears to my eyes! That is EXACTLY how I felt when I was pregnant with Leila. It was so hard to explain to other people in the family why I didn't want to compare.

Congrats by the way!!!
