The stark difference in this pregnancy compared to the others is why I was sure this would be a boy, so I was surprised when they said it is another girl.
Ditto. I am having another girl, but this pregnancy has been completely opposite. It has been 1000x easier for me. With Aleeya, I was sick all day every day the entire time. I feel pretty good this time around. I rarely throw up. She also moves a whole lot more than Aleeya ever did. I get kicked pretty much non stop.
For the most part all four of my pregnancies are pretty similar in how I feel. The first two I did have morning sickness which I didn't have with my third or this one but the last six months of my first two were easy. The last trimester with my third was horrible, I was always uncomfortable and my stomach constantly hurt from stretching. So far this one is going pretty good except for a lot of heartburn and more swelling than the previous three. With two months left to go my level of comfort could change quite a bit - hopefully not though.
I would say about the same. I was sick with DS pretty much the whole time, and this time I am sick everyday. My back has killed me both times, but the heartburn is much much worse this time around. The only thing that makes this one worse is that now I have a 15 month old to chase around so I can't nap when I want to!
Thank you so much AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggy!
This one has been harder. This baby is a girl, verses my other boys, but i really don't know if that makes a difference. I've had more random "problems" come up this time, and nausea in the beginning. I've never had that before w/ my others. It's been a ride, that's for certain!
It's funny because it's been the polar opposite of how things were w/Allie. In the beginning with her, I wasn't sick too much & felt great. With Hunter, I was sick as a dog, on Zofran, & puked for the first 4 months. I was so exhausted I could barely stand. For the second half of my 1st pregnancy, I was in constant pain, heart burn, & was absolutely miserable. I could barely move. With Hunter, other than some groin pain if I sit too long & a little trouble sitting up, I feel great. I just started getting some frequent heartburn (I had it HORRIBLE w/Allie) but I just started taking Zantac instead of wasting time on Tums like last time.
Overall, I don't know if I could do this a 3rd time, but I can't complain toooo much!
