So Different

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.

Love you new bloggy look - ok it may not be new but i don't always get further than google reader.

Do you have a strong feeling on the sex on way of another - did you with the boys?

I know with Ru i felt he was a boy , like you the pregnancy was so different than my other ones but i was scared of it not being true.

Im so excited for you finding out .

I'm so excited for you and love hearing about all the things you're going through! Sometimes I laugh to myself and sometimes I sigh because something you write brings up a memory of one of my pregnancies. Regardless of what it is, I always enjoy stopping in to see what is up with you! Thanks for sharing.

Love the blog colors and design too.

Oh man, the cravings! Eat what sounds good. It helps.

I did find that with two kids, it was way harder (is way harder) to drink as much water as I need to or as I did the first time or even the second. And that made me a lot more nauseated.

Yay for babies!
