But yeah this is completely different!
Last time I had constant upset tummy - could only eat Chick-Fil-A easily. This time I don't feel sick so much, but I also cannot eat much easily - even Chick-Fil-A. I totally have to go grocery shopping when I'm hungry and buy things that seem appealing at that time. That way I will be able to eat most of it most of the time. I do think it's possible that my tummy doesn't roll like it did last time because I'm still nursing DD.
Also, my uterous feels VERY heavy already. I didn't notice my lower belly - or any signs of baby - until I was 5 months, and even then it was only noticeable to me. Even DH couldn't REALLY tell at that point. I'm not showing because I'm quite fluffy, but I think if I'd started thin I might have a belly goin now!
Anyway... I think I'm having another girl because we DTD before I even ovulated. But I'll be super happy to have a boy, since I want there to be a brother to stick up for my pretty DD!!! We'll see when the baby arrives!!!

So far this one is different from either of those in the fact that I am much sicker and more tired than either time.

My second, a boy, I had NOTHING. Perfect, perfect, perfect pregnancy. I didn't even feel pregnant, belly and all. I remember hearing someone say when I was pregnant with my first, "I felt SO good being pregnant that I want to stay that way the rest of my life" and I could NOT get that. I felt miserable my first time around.
But my second? I totally understand that sentiment. I felt better pregnant with my son than I do normally! I could have stayed pregnant with him forever.
This time? Just like my first, if not worse.
So I think it's a girl.

I've been pregnant 7 times and the first 6 I was as sick as a dog!!!!!
My first was a son. Sick, sick, sick for the 1st 4 months
My second was a son. Beyond sick, morning, noon and night sickness and it lasted throughout the pregnancy. I lost weight and couldn't keep anything down. Had heartburn.
Third was a girl--sick, sick, sick for about 5 months. Limited heartburn, but just felt gross and tired most of the time.
Fourth was a son and I was sick for a little while with him, but then didn't feel pregnant at all suddenly. We lost him.
5th was a girl--sick for only 2 months, throwing mostly in the mornings, then a PERFECT pregnancy. I did have 2 weeks of migraines mid-trimester, but other than that felt GREAT!!!! I had that pregnancy glow and couldn't believe it because up till this point I HATED being pregnant and couldn't understand how anyone could actually enjoy it with all the nausea, aches and pains etc. It was an awesome pregnancy and I felt soooooo GOOD!
6th baby miscarried too early to know the sex, but I was definitely sick.
7th (current pregnancy)--I've been a bit nervous b/c I haven't had much m/s. I haven't thrown up one time, but have been nauseous on and off. I'm very tired all the time. Nothing else remarkable happening. I have to say that I don't have the same glow as my 5th pregnancy, but I'm just entering 2nd trimester so it could still happen.
All that to say that based on my experience, the sex of the baby doesn't necessarily make you more or less sick while pregnant. I was sick with both sexes.
This one is different. I feel fine. It was making me so nervous that I got an ultrasound. Everything was fine, but I just can't believe after last pg, that I could feel this good and functional at this stage of the game! We are hoping for a boy, so I think it is one. But if it's a girl, then I'll be just as happy. Maybe this means she'll be a better baby.
Didn't do ultrasounds, but everyone was so sure (each time) it would be a boy. We were quite surprised twice.
I had acid indigestion and heartburn from the start with this one.
oops, gotta go puke
My pregnancies with all of my girls were very different from this one. (Although not all my girl pregnancies were the same...if that makes any sense.)
I don't feel pregnant. I look pregnant. But I feel great (now...I didn't for the first 10.5 weeks). Tons of energy, not sick, not tired, etc. Not crazy emotional. No leg cramps, insomnia. Seriously, I feel so good that I panicked last weel & went running to the midwives for them to listen for a HB.
