It makes me worry that something is wrong with the baby, but I'm sure he's fine. I think more than anything I am so busy right now I don't have time to think about my pregnancy. Definitely much different than my last one.
I think this is it.

With my last pregnancy, I could just not cook and DH would fend for himself, I could obsess about every symptom, read 4 different 'your baby this week' blogs, plan, prepare, nap after work, etc.

With this one, I still have a home to maintain. I have 3 meals a day to prepare for a 2yo, I haven't taken weekly photos or obsessed or even read a 'your baby' type blog in weeks.

It's just very different. We 'worked hard' to conceive DD - took 3 yrs. She was highly anticipated. This baby was wanted and desired, but came easily without charting and testing and such.

So it's just surreal. I had an early miscarriage a couple months before this pregnancy. That was surreal. And then this one stuck.

Right now the baby is moving all over, it's wonderful. But I don't feel pregnant really. I certainly don't look almost halfway baked.

So different.
