Easy Street

Knocking on wood as I write this...

I feel like this is the easiest pregnancy that has ever occurred in the history of procreation.  And it happened spontaneously.  No doctors, needles, medications or ultrasounds.  My charts were put away and my thermometer never left my drawer.  In fact, my RE doesn't even know that I'm pregnant this time.  This girl seriously won the fertility lottery. 

So I expected that it would be a miserable pregnancy.  Only seemed fair really.  And I don't think I would have even complained if I'd been plagued by morning sickness, out-of-control mood swings, and extreme fatigue.  

Paisley was a booger to get, so I was blessed with a great pregnancy with her which only seemed right.  Even then, I dealt with continuous nausea until 14 weeks, back pain that made my legs numb, and a funky heartrate that earned me a heart monitor several times. 

This time, the biggest complaint that I can possibly come up with if I'm being super creative and nit-picky is that I've had round ligament pain.  Several times.  Not enough to ruin a day or even really comment on.  I just didn't have it last time.  Otherwise, I feel completely normal.

Which in a way is a bad deal because it's hard for me to remember that I actually have a little being growing in there who is sooner rather than later going to come forcing their way out!!!


  1. maybe you've earned an easy pregnancy after everything you went through to get paisley and then your pregnancy it with her.
    I'm so glad it's going well for you you totally deserve it!!!

  2. YAY! You deserve it! I had an AWESOME pregnancy with Addy and she was conceived the easy peasy way too, lol! I was tired - but I'm pretty sure that was at least HALF due to the newborn I was caring for as well! I felt SO blessed and I look back on my pregnancy with nothing but love and joy. It totally makes me want to do it again - but not NOW, lol! Enjoy it, momma!

  3. I'm so happy for you, you totally desrve and awesome pregnancy:)
