Am I Really Pregnant?

Well not only did this pregnancy start out different than our first, it has only continued to be a complete 180 from the first pregnancy. With Elora I knew right away, I was constantly sick, and overall had a rough go at pregnancy. This time it has been so easy! In fact, if it wasn't for the growing belly, I might still not know I am pregnant! Crazy how that works out. 

This pregnancy, like our first, has been a complete blessing, but in a different way. I am thankful, like most moms would be, that the second one has been easier, since I still have a toddler to chase after and can't just sleep the day away if I'm not feeling up to it. Yes I have had some symptoms here and there. There was a week where heat would make me queasy. I couldn't open the drying after it had been running without feeling a little sick. But that came and went. And I feel much more tired this time around, but that could also do with having a toddler. 

17.5wks

I am just over 17 weeks now and have noticed that I feel more uncomfortable a lot sooner than I did with Elora. Not to mention this baby is so much lower than I carried with Elora, so even leaning a little bit down feels like I'm crushing baby. I have felt many little flutters here and there over the past few weeks, but the past couple days has been non stop, and I am enjoying every single little movement! I think you truly forget the magic of those little movements. I have a feeling this little baby will have some great kicks for me coming very soon, and I look forward to each and every one! 

Yes, we will be finding out the sex, very soon! As much as I think it would be fun to leave it a surprise, I know Josh wouldn't be able to wait, which makes it that much harder. So why not! Of course we will love baby either way! My theory is boy, only because of the difference in pregnancies, and Josh is determined it is a girl. So we will see!
