5 Things That Are Different This Pregnancy

Everyone says it, but each pregnancy really is SO different, and this one was no exception. I love hearing about other women's pregnancies and what type of things they experienced, so I thought I'd share a little bit about how this pregnancy has been different than my other two. :) 
1. I Didn't Get An Ultrasound Until 10 Weeks 
With both Rosalie and Riley, I was able to get an ultrasound around 8 weeks. However, with this one I didn't get an ultrasound until 10 weeks. I went in for my first appointment at 9 weeks thinking I would get an ultrasound that day, but I didn't! It was SO hard for me to wait a whole week longer and I am a worrier, so I was very nervous. Thankfully, everything with baby looked great at our 10 week ultrasound and I was super relieved!

2. The Morning Sickness Has Been Much Different 
This time around my morning sickness has been so much different than with my last two pregnancies.  With Rosalie I was sick all day from about 6 weeks to 13 weeks and with Riley I was sick from 5 weeks to 11 weeks, but with this one I had really bad sickness all day from about 6.5 weeks to 15 weeks and then it turned into me just being sick when I would eat. I am 22 weeks now and I still get sick when I eat. Some foods are worse than others, but I almost always get sick. This has made it a bit harder for me to eat, but of course I do my best. I am just really careful about what I eat most of the time. 

3. I Was Totally Wrong About The Gender 
I had a guess about the gender with Rosalie and Riley, and both times my guess was correct. However, with this one I was so sure that it was a girl and it wasn't just a guess. You better believe I was shocked when they told us at our anatomy ultrasound that our sweet little baby was a BOY. Thrilled, elated, soooo happy, but still shocked!

4. I Feel Like I Was Much More Tired 
I don't know if this is just me not remembering correctly or what, but I feel like I was so much more tired at the beginning of this pregnancy. It may have been because I had two kiddos to care for instead of zero or one, but either way, all I wanted to do was sleep. For about the first 4 months I felt like I needed at least 10 hours of sleep to function, which is about 4 hours more than I usually get ha! 

5. I Didn't Have To Stop Exercising During Morning Sickness
I had to stop exercising during my morning sickness with Rosalie and Riley, but with this pregnancy I was able to continue exercising through it. I modified and listened to my body, but I actually felt better if I exercised. That was a blessing for me because it got me out of the house each morning and to the gym so the kids could play at the kid care with their friends and I could have some me time. :) 

I'm sure there were/are about a billion other differences that I'm not thinking of right now, but these are some big ones. What are some of the differences that you experienced with your pregnancies?
