A few differences in this pregnancy from my first....
*Cravings - With Lily, I went through boxes and boxes of sugary cereal. This time, I am craving serious carbs, in the form of pasta. Watch out for my house if you are on an Adkin's diet. And if not, send me your favorite pasta recipes!
*The bump - hello baby! While I am similar in weight as the first time around, the bump is about six weeks ahead of schedule. Just about ready to whip out my maternity clothes.
*Aches - I've already been suffering sciatic pain, which didn't start with Lily until around 35 weeks. It's been so bad at a few points that I wasn't able to pick Lily up...and she was not a happy camper with that development. However, it seems better now so I am hoping it was just a fluke and not something I will be dealing with for the remaining five months.
*Pains - I never experienced headaches with Lily and now seem to get one at least once a week. I hear it's a fairly common symptom and am hoping they will go away as the pregnancy progresses.
*Less research - Ryan and I both kinda forget I am pregnant. With Lily, we read every week on her development, talked about what size she was in the womb, spent hours working on her nursery, etc. This time, I remembered to look up the development at 15 weeks and was shocked that the baby was already the size of an apple. I thought "when did that happen?"
*More anxiousness - However, I am much more nervous this time. Not sure if it's because I've had a number of friends with issues or if I just realize how awesome actually having a baby is, and how much I have to lose.
What could all these differences mean?
Do you think it's a boy???
