What Is Different . . .


Nothing feels the same with the pregnancy then it did while I was pregnant with Alex. I mean I feel like this is a completely different pregnancy . . oh wait it is but somethings should be the same shouldn't they, except for the fact that I am pregnant!

I hate hot showers ( I mean with Alex I would sit in the shower with the water as hot as it could go and stay in there tell there was no more hot water ). I can't stand the hot water with this baby and when Alex showers with me she says its not warm enough!

I am tired - I could nap daily and I don't remember being tired with Alex. I know I am chasing around kids but I am not a person that likes to nap but daily I feel like I need a nap. But the thing I hate is even when I nap I feel way worse when I wake up.

Feeling Sick - I throw up daily and some days I throw up 3 times a day. Just thinking about food will make me want to throw up. Most the time I have nothing to throw up and I hate the dry heaves. Not only is the throwing up bad but just feeling weak and sick is not fun.

Bleeding - why am I bleeding . . well I know but for how long can this go on? I am pregnant and I don't want to have what is like my period for the next 6 months, I didn't want to have it for 9 months!

Smells - This is one thing I do not remember with Alex one bit but I feel like I can smell everything. It drives me insane because I hate lots of smells. Today I was outside with the kids and I swear I could smell popsicle sticks ( which i can not stand ) and wet dogs.

Thats all I can think of right now. There are so many things that are different that I don't remember with Alex or that just weren't there with her. Some say it may be a boy but only time will tell.

We will be happy with either a boy or a girl. We just want a healthy and happy baby!

Bless your heart. You sound like this one is just not setting well with you. But they say symptoms are a good sign of a healthy pregnancy. I'm just sorry that it makes you miserable. Maybe it is a boy like some other people are saying or maybe its another girl and this one is just stubborn already :).
Either way I hope here soon your symptoms get better and you can start to enjoy the pregnancy a little.

It's crazy how pregnancy is so different everytime. I hope you start feeling better soon and get to enjoy the pregnancy too! This baby is being difficult from the start isn't he/she? Are you going to find out what it is? Just wondering.

Yuck. Sounds like this pregnancy is tougher. Mine got tougher too. Hang in there! I hope you start feeling better soon. How far along are you now?

oh girl, i am so sorry to hear that this pregnancy seems to be worst than your first. mine got progressively worse with each baby - so #4 was the worst!

i am praying that all the yuckies will go away as you get into the second trimester. i promise that you will forget about it once you see your sweet new baby!!!

prayers and blessings to you!!!

So sorry to hear you are miserable! I will be 27 weeks tomorrow and I just quit with the morning sickness about a week ago! I had it ALL day for about 4 months. No fun! :)
Thanks for the comments on the nursery. I didn't do the stripes in the room, but I did some in my Master Bedroom. They are not hard, but VERY time consuming. My advise...paint the base color and let it dry for a couple of days. Then when you put your tape on, take a towel or something soft and rub the tape as much as possible to get it to stick into the grooves of the wall. I then pulled the tape off before the paint got sticky. Good luck if you try!
