When I found out I was pregnant again, I expected that I would feel pretty much the same as I did last time. I expected to drink lots of "Canada Dry Gingerale", to be taking medication for nausea for the full nine months, and to have a sore back.
This time around, some things have been similar, but others are VERY different.
For the past week I have noticed that I have had to change the toilet paper roll in one of our two bathrooms, at least once a day. WHAT!?! I was completely baffled at where all of the toilet paper was going...and I assumed that Addison was sneaking into the bathroom to "blow her nose". I must be completely blond, or maybe I just have pregnant mommy brain, because it honestly didn't occur to me that I was the one using it all up! Last night after I went to the bathroom for the 5th time in an hour and a half, it finally hit me. Duh! When I told Ryan about my discovery he looked at me with a 'SERIOUSLY?' kind of look, and laughed at me. I really don't remember having to go to the bathroom very often when I was pregnant with Addison! This time I am constantly in the bathroom. Anyone out there thinking about being pregnant--stock up on TP!
During my pregancy with Addison, it took a LONG time for me to get my appetite back. Although I still am taking Zofran 2x a day, I am also ALWAYS eating. I swear I eat at least 5 small meals a day. And I have been craving foods a lot. Lately I have been craving KFC chicken, Funeral Potatos, and BBQ. Don't be surprised if I gain 100 pounds by the time this baby is ready to make his/her appearance!
There have been a few other differences with both pregnancies, but I am going to finish this post off here...because SURPRISE, baby is pushing RIGHT on my bladder, and you know what that means! :)
