Since I have both a girl and a boy I am a total expert on this topic (pssh.). I was sent this infograph and I had to laugh because I’m sure everyone that has ever been pregnant has heard all of these. Why is it SO LONG to wait until 20 weeks to find out the sex of our baby? We have to know rightthissecondrightnowiwanttoknow. When I was pregnant with Molly I was positive I was having a girl and when I was pregnant with Burke I totally
wanted knew it was another girl.
I analyzed the hell out of my pregnancy symptoms to figure out what I was having. But I have also analyzed my friends’ pregnancies and we are all different. I was throwing up every.single.morning for the first 12 weeks with Molly while my BFF didn’t get sick at all with her girl. With Burke I threw up maybe a handful of times, but I felt hungover every day and had horrible headaches. I gained more weight with Molly, but I blame it on being my first pregnancy and taking advantage of ALLTHEFOOD! I also stuck with a workout routine while I was pregnant with Burke. The acne… oh the acne… I did have it with Molly but not with Burke, so hmmm… is that a myth?? I also had a lot of fruit cravings with Molly and couldn’t even look at meat. I cried, like legit tears, because I didn’t want to eat the chicken that I had made one night.
Myths or not, they are fun and they keep us occupied for a few months. Did you have differences in your pregnancies?
