nesting syndrome!

So, this pregnancy has been pretty different than the first. Because of that, I was pretty sure we were having a boy, until the ultrasound technician assured us it was a girl (I sure hope she was right, we have nothing boy!). Anyway, some of the differences have been stuff like I was way more sick this time at the beginning (I got the sickest I have ever been in my life one night when we were driving to New Mexico, migraine headache, nausea, it was aweful, and great timing I know, in the car!). The only thing that helped me feel better with the morning (haha, morning! yeah right!) sickness was orange juice (which I was told usually makes your stomach more unsettled...) and mint gum, thank goodness for those two things. Also, I have been WAY more hot this time even though they're birthdays are both in the summer. My sleeping has been way more uncomfortable, etc, etc. Another difference is this thing called nesting syndrome. I'm not sure if that's the technical name for it but that's what I'm calling it. I have this great desire to make things organized and clean (hence the new vacuum maybe???). This is not my normal tendency! I like things to be organized and clean but getting motivated to do it is another thing (as my parents will tell you from growing up, and my husband too). I actually like this symptom of pregnancy though. Somehow I missed it with Katey but I'll take it this time! Our home is becoming cleaner by the day!

it's so weird what pregnancy does to people. I have a couple other friends who are pregnant for the second time and they are saying it's completely different too. I definitely don't think I have nesting syndrome with this first one though!!

hope you start feeling better and better!
