Different Pregnancy!

With DD, by 6 weeks I was non-stop vomitting which didn't let up until 14/15 weeks. I was asleep by 7pm every night and I wanted sweet things. This time, I'm gaggy but overall OK...I get nausea but it does't lead to anything as long as I eat (knock on wood!). All I want is spicy, salty food!

I guess it's true that every pregnancy is different!

How about yours? Are you seeing differences?

SO different! With DD I was nauseous from morning til night from about 5 weeks through til 12 or 13 weeks. This time, I have barely been nauseous ever. With DD I came home from work, sat down on the couch and didn't move until it was time to go to bed. This time I can't do that because of DD, but, I also don't really feel like I need/want to. I'm still cooking (though often not wanting to!), and staying busy in general. So yeah....totally different. I think I also feel like there is more at stake this time, because I realize in a way that wasn't possible with a first pregnancy, that there really is a baby coming...a baby growing... a baby that is once again going to change everything!

This one is different for me too. I am usually drop dead tired...like barely able to hold my head up tired, but feel fine. This time Im queasy a lot...my cramping is more, Im gagging often, but Im not as tired. Im tired...but its not the lethargy that came with other pg's I have had in the past!

Yup I'm in the same boat. Was so ill and wanted anything with sugar in it but this time, all the McDonalds ads on tv are making me want a big Mac (yuck ) and I don't even eat them!

So yes I'm completely different too.. And I'm alot more tired then I was with Addison.. And alot hungrier!

Definitely! I am feeling more like I did with pregnancy #1. Very, very, very tired. But not feeling the all-day nausea, gagging, barfy feeling like I did with #2 and #3. DH is convinced that it has to do with whether the baby is a boy or a girl. Felt sick all the time with both girls, and with the boy, not so much.

My first two pregancies were almost exactly identical. This one...not so much. I wake up with hunger pains, crave salty foods, and off and on nausea throughout the day. I basically chew on a Tums prior to going to bed. Pitiful. I hear different people say, "You are having a boy!" I don't take anything to heart until the doctor tells me!

My sister swears this. She has two boys and a girl and she was only really sick with my niece. I have two boys now and really didn't have any symptoms with them at all. I thought this pregnancy was going to be similar until Monday hit and now I am getting a good lesson in what morning (all day) sickness is about. I never ever felt this awful with my boys so it will be interesting to see what this peanut is.

I dont know if this is true or not. My first was a boy. Sick NON STOP. Couldnt even drive by a grocery store without throwing up. This time, so far, I havent thrown up, though I have felt like it a couple times. Then again, at 6 weeks, Im not convinced it hasnt hit me yet. My bbs dont hurt as much. Again, its early. I can say the first time I didnt work, this time I am. I feel like, yes, Im sick, but Im so busy during the day I simply dont have time to be sick. Lord help me if I do....Im trying to keep this a secret from my co-wokers!!!! Im about to ask for a raise and for some reason I think if they know Im less likely to get it? Stupid glass ceiling.

I was STARVING hungry with my two girls, obsessed with food and when I was going to eat, but not so far with this one. DH thinks it must be a boy...
