From the get-go, this pregnancy has been very different from the last. If this is any indication of how different Abby and Zack will be, we are in for an adventure.
Nausea/Vomiting: Pretty bad with both, including a trip to the E.R. with Zack. However, I haven’t thrown up with Zack since last month, but was sick with Abby till I delivered.
Heartburn: Didn’t start popping the Tums till the last month with Abby and it was pretty bad by the end, enough so that I had to stop pushing to deal with my reflux for about an hour. BUT I have been taking Pepcid for a month now with Zack…four months before I’m due. This is a little scary.
Potty time: Am constantly going to the restroom with Zack, including twice in the middle of the night. With Abby, I thought there was something wrong with me, cause I didn’t need to pee any more than normal.
Movement: Abby was active. Zack is the Tasmanian Devil…especially at night.
Sleep: Slept pretty well with Abby till the last month or so. I am constantly waking up with Zack, to adjust positions due to hip and leg pain. Again, still 3 months to go…oye!
Size: I am feeling like my tummy is much bigger (and I am feeling much more pregnant) at this point with Zack than with Abby. And yup, the Doc is also pretty confident that this little Guy is going to be bigger than his Sis, at least at birth.
I will leave out the rest of the gory details that go with pregnancy, but just thought I’d share a little more about how this is going. Thanks for reading.
