Lay off I'm STARVING!

So far this pregnancy has been a little different than my first.  I would have to say my pregnancy with Brody was probably the most perfect pregnancy a girl could have (including labor).  I wasn't sick, I wasn't in pain, no stretch marks, no permanent weight gain (and actually I lost everything I gained and then some!), no swollen feet.  Not to mention, my doctor told me to eat eat eat- even eat a bowl of ice cream every night!  Seriously!  I gained 18 lbs total being pregnant with Brody.  My doctor said, "I don't say this often but you can literally eat whatever you want.  Eat a bowl of ice cream every night to get your weight up."  How perfect is that?  I ask you.

But this one.... whoaaa.  Maybe it's a girl.  I hear you can feel differently when you are carrying a boy vs girl.  I'm more hoping for a boy so Brody has a close buddy but either way I'll be extremely happy.  

Oh yeah... but yes, this pregnancy has been a little different... in that, I feel pretty sick to my stomach every morning till late afternoon (sometimes all day and I have a hard time falling asleep at night) and I'm TIRED.  Oh man, am I always tired.  I'm also freakishly hungry and I wasn't with Brody (i never had cravings with Brody... I'm still not and I hope it stays that way).  I already feel bloated.  I didn't start showing for a looong while with Brody so what gives?  Oh well.  I'm not... throw-up-sick, thank goodness, but I just feel kind of  blah.  It could be that now I'm going to school and running a bit of a business in addition to everything else- whereas, with Brody I sat for 8 hours in the front office at Mesa Pediatrics.  Actually it was more involved than that but at least I got to wear comfy scrubs my whole pregnancy.  That, I could get used to.

Anyway so I found out on Monday that I'm 7 weeks (I know for sure- I was just guessing before)- due November 26- black friday, woo woo!  So it either means I miss out on all the good shopping I usually do, and possibly Thanksgiving festivities, OR I'll still get to go shopping and it'll be an excellent way to try to induce labor.  I'd be good with any of that.  With Brody I went into labor on my own the day after my scheduled due date.  I should be pretty close this time.
SO here's the sonogram picture.  Enjoy the snapshot of my uterus...

and that adorable little bean that will soon make me a sick monstrosity. (well not if I can help it)
You'd still love me right?

you generally feel different with each pregnancy, but major/noticeable differences can be caused because your new baby is a different gender than your first.
either way, new babies are blessings. boy or girl, it will all be awesome and perfect.

I hope when I decide to have kids it can be like your first pregnancy. I'm scared about stretch marks because I'm so tiny, any bit of weight is going to have to stretch me lol. Gotta love eating ice cream every night though.

I was born on Black Monday (1987), then stock markets crashed.

To me: SHE looks beautiful, (I see a little girl head and little girl arms) though if you are having a boy, sorry to my 2nd grandson from you and 5th grandchild in all! At either rate, I am excited for your uterine growth! Come to think of it, the way you describe your tiredness was precisely the way I was feeling when I was pregnant with you, so chances are, SHE is coming soon! I know you mentioned some names---Kenly, etc., but could you include that with your comments back? It is never to early to start thinking about the names. And, don't worry about your ravenous moods. They weigh each other out! I once ate a whole watermelon when I was pregnant with you (and not the wimpy sized ones---the gynormous sized ones!) I love you so much! I wish I could be there to share in your everyday moments more, but thanks for keeping me updated through your blogging. I will try to do the same for you! Love your best friend, Mother

As you know I pretty much died my first 18 weeks of being pregnant but I had a friend tell me when I told her I was having a girl, " no wonder youve been so sick, two woman should never live that close together". She would know too she was extrememly sick with both her pregnancies, both girls.
