This pregnancy is so different from my first two with the boys. It makes me wonder if maybe i will get my girl this time. It is just over all different. Almost everything have been a new and different experience with this bun in the oven.
For instance the cravings are a plenty! With Phabian i really didn't have any strong desire to eat anything. I know Tuna Salad tasted really good but i did HAVE to have it. I did have an aversion to meat (other than seafood) but i don't really know how you compare that. With MJ I only had one craving and that was Jalapenos. I ate them on everything but once again i could have lived without them also.
This time, this baby, all i want it breakfast food. I consume massive amounts of orange juice to the point i am scared i might overdose on Vitamin C. My freeze and fridge is packed full of bagels, waffles, pancakes, sausage, bacon, biscuits, and anything else you might desire to fix breakfast for a king. I cant make it a day without eating some sort of breakfast food.
Today i ate a sausage, egg, and cheese croissant. It was so good that i wanted another but was out so i fixed scrambled eggs with cheese and ate it on toast. If i cant get this under control i am going to gain 100 pounds!
Another difference is my nausea. I never had any of that upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, morning sickness or what ever you want to call it. My sister was so jealous that i never went through that but this time around it seems i have been really nauseous. Especially first thing in the morning and it subsides around 2 in the afternoon. I still haven't actually thrown up and now as i approach 11 weeks it seems to be subsiding some as well as my constant tiredness.
I am so excited for this journey and can not hardly wait the 5 to 9 weeks it will be before we find out what we are having. As bad as i want a little girl i am not getting my hopes up. I will love this baby boy or girl and it seems to me that adding another boy to are family would be almost easier as we already know the routine. Adding a girl however would be a new adventure and a cute girly one at that.
So far so good though. My blood pressure looks good, i have yet to gain any weight, and i am coming out of my first trimester slump. All looks and feels well for a great beginning to a now 29 more week journey.
