One of the biggest differences between the two was the morning sickness. When I was pregnant with Wylder, I was lucky enough to miss out on the morning sickness phase. The only time I ever felt a little sick was if I had too much sugar. Otherwise, I felt great! So when I saw that positive pregnancy test for the second time, I just assumed the same would happen again. Boy was I wrong! I wound up being sick for the remainder of my first trimester. What made it worse was that I had a toddler that I still had to chase and take care of. There were some days that I couldn’t even get off the couch. Luckily, Wylder is sensitive and sensed that I didn’t feel so great and spent those days cuddled up to me on the couch. I am so glad that those days are behind me!
Bigger Belly Sooner
With my first pregnancy, my belly was so little and I could still fit into my regular clothes until I was 34 weeks pregnant. This time, I was early in the second trimester when everything for too tight. I’m carrying even lower than I did the first time around and of course, my muscles are not as tight in my stomach so my stomach got a lot bigger a lot faster. I knew that would probably happen, but I didn’t expect it to happen as early as it did.
