5 On Friday

5 differences in my pregnancies....

1. Since I had Hudson at 36 weeks my doctor put me on a new (read expensive) shot that I get 1x a week to help keep Claiborne in my tummy! I have been getting the shot since 16 weeks and will stop around 34 weeks. My boss has been really amazing with me having to leave or come in late every week which is great.

2. I didn't work while I was pregnant with Hudson. This time around I work in a building that takes me over half a mile to walk to and from the lunch So while I do get in some walking everyday, walking in dress shoes leads to swollen feet, which only happened to me once while pregnant with Hudson. I also am way more stressed out and have to remind myself to keep calm!

3.  I have a 5 year old! A 50 pound 5 year old who still wants me to carry him... We are working on H's independence in certain areas so that hopefully he can help me out and be a little more self sufficient once his sister gets here.

4.  Morning sickness is not just a 1st trimester thing. I was never sick with Hudson. This time even before I officially knew I was pregnant I was so nauseous! There were 2 days where I couldn't even get out of bed I felt so bad, on top of that I was car sick every time I got in the car. It was miserable! I kept waiting for the relief that everyone told me was coming and while I have felt much better I still have some lingering morning sickness about once or twice a week.

5. Claiborne is a mover and a shaker. Hudson never moved! With Hudson I would have to go to the Dr's a few times to check on him b/c he just never moved! Claiborne moves all the time...I love it!
