This pregnancy has been very similar to my pregnancy with Eli, but also really different. I don't know how to explain it in words, but here goes...
With Eli, (by the way I'm a little over 13 weeks right now... I should probably get one of those ticker things) by this point I'd gained like 8 or 9 pounds. I never looked at the scale with him after the first trimester. I just didn't want to know. And I never knew how much I had gained until my doctor's appointment with this pregnancy. A different doctor was filling in for my doctor and ended up telling me that I gained around 50 pounds!!!! what?!?! ... see... that's why I didn't want to know.
I lost all but 4 of those pounds.
This time, I've only gained between 1 pound and 1.5 pounds. I'm eating plenty and all of that, but that's a huge difference to me than the last time.
With Eli I was never sick just really tired. This time I haven't been sick but I can't stand anything that smells, even if it smells good. I just don't want to smell anything ever. Food used to taste a lot like cardboard with this pregnancy, but now it tastes good again. I've been really really tired with this baby also. But I just feel different somehow. I really don't know why or how exactly, I just do.
So my next appointment is June 11 and then I go for my next sono (where we can find out the sex) on July 8!!! SO exciting! We don't care what we have; we just want a healthy baby! It's already determined anyway!
