I was always curious if my pregnancies would be the same or different with each child. Now knowing this one is a boy has made it really interesting to compare them. Here are some random facts about being pregnant with baby boy no. 2:
(Mostly for my own record, feel free to read along with my randomness though)
*I did not necessarily ‘feel’ pregnant when I found out I was pregnant.
*I had all day long morning sickness from 6 weeks until around 20 weeks.
*At 12 weeks I was sick all day but able to slowly function and do what I needed to do to take care of the Little Man, Hubby and the house.
*At 20 weeks I only felt sick on average twice a day for an hour or so usually late morning around 10am and mid afternoon around 2pm.
*At 24 weeks, I feel normal most of the time with only rare occurrences of sickness 🙂 Hooray!
*I CRAVED savory, pickled, and SPICY food really strongly until around 18 weeks.
*My favorites were Thai style chicken curry with lots of crushed red pepper, pickled jalapenos and banana peppers on everything, and deli style turkey sandwiches with lots of spicey mustard.
*Sweet things made me sick most of the time, except for chocolate sometimes.
* At 24 weeks I felt like I could eat sweets all day long…I didn’t though. 🙂
*I began feeling the baby kick at 16 weeks
*I didn’t start looking pregnant until around 20 weeks! (According to everyone other than myself and Hubby)
*Now at 28 weeks, I am starting to slow down a bit again. I get tired much easier. Baby Boy #2 is moving a LOT now and my belly often looks like a scene from the movie Alien. By 9pm I am ready for bed and I could easily sleep past 7am if Little Man would cooperate 🙂
Thats all for now. For kicks and giggles, lets look at a comparison:
Me at 28 weeks with Little Man-
Can I just tell you that I still have that shirt and there is no way on God’s green earth that my belly today is fitting in that thing? I guess it is true that you show more with the more kiddos you have. At this point I have still gained less than I did with Little Man at this point, but the belly is oh-so-much bigger.
Today at 30 weeks:
