13 Weeks

This is my first pregnancy update on the new blog and I'm kind of excited about it. It's been a special day so I've been anxious to get to the computer and share all about it.

From the very beginning of this pregnancy, I've felt like it was so much like my pregnancy with Rozlyn...up until about 2 weeks ago.

The few differences I've noticed now are my sense of smell is intense with this new baby. Smells never bothered me with Rozlyn and nothing actually bothers me with this baby either but my sense of smell is just amped up and insane which never happened with Rozlyn. Pickles and dogs I've noticed at the things I'm most sensitive to. The smell of pickles have literally repulsed me since well, forever. But now, I can even smell if my sandwich was NEAR a pickle. Everything just absorbs that smell. And dogs, UGH, they just soak up that nasty, wet-dog, outside smell. And the best, most amazing difference is the baby movement. It started waaaay early this time...I'm not sure if that's attributed to this being my second pregnancy which I've heard is very common to feel movement this soon or just being more sensitive with this pregnancy in general. But it was the real "butterfly flutters" like in the movies! I didn't feel Rozlyn kick till I was 22 weeks and it was a full-blown gassy-like kick.

These new developments have gotten me so excited to compare the two and see what will be different in the near future!
