I totally can't believe how different this pregnancy feels from DS1. With him, I got huge, fast (gained 15lbs the 1st tri, whereas this time I haven't even gotten halfway to 15lbs YET!) and was uncomfortable from about 18 weeks on. I still feel relatively un-pregnant even now... I can still bend over, sit, walk, do things, wash dishes, breathe... with him I just got to the point where I couldn't do many of those things (which of course made me gain MORE weight! I gained about 65ish with him). I'm not sure if it's because I'm eating better, or because I started out a little lighter (15-20lbs) to begin with, or because I exercised more the 1st tri... either way, I've been growing a stomach this time, not, as so many people asked "a set of twins in the stomach, and another in each thigh"...
It's just amazing how different each one can be--and it's not a gender thing, this one is also a boy! Here's some interesting pics...20 weeks with Jake27 weeks with Jake18 weeks with 2e22 weeks with 2e24 weeks with 2e
And, just for fun, even though I'm not there yet w/ this guy37 weeks with Jake, last preggo pic, 1 week before D Day
I was complaining to DH the other day "Man, what is this, I can hardly eat a thing! It's like I'm in the last trimester already or something!" He said, "baby, I believe that's next week..."
No. Idea... how that snuck up on me!
