17 Weeks

I am 17 weeks and all is well.  This pregnancy is a breeze compared to my last pregnancy.  No wonder so many women told me that I was over reacting with my last pregnancy.  If most women's pregnancies are like this one, of course they would think I was a crazy person for my first pregnancy.  If pregnancy was always this easy, tons of women would do it.  When I was pregnant with Nicole I was sick almost the whole time and I was in pain and just plum miserable.  This pregnancy is completely different!

It just goes to show that not only is every woman's pregnancy different, but every pregnancy is different.  I am rarely nauseated any more.  I only get nauseous when I wait too long to eat.  I am no longer ravenous for food all the time.  I can go like 4 hours without eating or vomiting.  Yay!  I don't even get daily heartburn like I did a few weeks ago.  I only get it if I eat greasy food, so I just stay away from that and I am fine.

Right now my worst symptoms include:

Feeling uncomfortable and front heavy.
Being unbalanced and uncoordinated.
Emotional at times, but nothing compared to the craziness of my Nicole pregnancy.
Various food aversions (some food items taste like non food to me)
Varying between hot and cold during the day.
And ligament pain.

Other than that, I am doing okay.  Which really makes me a happy preggo lady.  Now that I know that boy pregnancies are this easy, I think I might just want all boys from now on.

I'm glad you're doing so much better than last time! If all of your boys are like that, may you hope for the rest to be boys! For me, if the next is a girl and it's worse than it was with Henry, two might be all we're having.

Boy pregnancies are a breeze. I am jealous. But ... I am not that jealous because now that we will have one of each, I am done!!

Even if your next one is a girl, you could have another easy pregnancy. I think that your first pregnancy was hard because you hadn't been well before you were even pregnant. I'm glad that this one is a more normal pregnancy and that you are enjoying it more. May all you other pregnancies be like this one or even easier.
