Not all captors are created equal. And I'm wondering how my body will adapt to being hostage to 2 captors.
I have a specific example. For as long as I can remember, if I am sleeping when P is sleeping, I wake up a few minutes before he does. Every time. Even if he awakes in the middle of the night. I just KNOW. My body knows. What happens when captor #2 is here??? The thought baffles.
Back to the not equal thing...
This pregnancy is radically different from P's. So much so that I was convinced I was losing the baby just a few days ago. NT scan yesterday, however, showed just the opposite :-) Grasshopper is ahead of schedule, and quite a wiggle worm. Gah! Tangent. Okay, below, the differences!
- With P I threw up nonstop for what, 6 months? This time it's utterly random, and not bad at all. (Thank goodness!)
- I can't eat just anything I want anymore. With P I could handle just about anything. This time, bring on the bland, and NO MEAT!!! Bad, bad idea. No garlic. No onion. Oy. The sweet tooth remains, however.
- I am EXHAUSTED. Not like, oh, I need a nap exhausted. I mean please let me sleep for 24 hours tired. It's getting better. But I can't remember a time in my life - maybe when I had mono - when the exhaustion was so complete. At one point I was zonked 15-16 hours a day. For real. Unfortunately my old friend insomnia is here. God, what a horrid combination.
- I was a sex fiend last time, some of you may remember. This time as well...as long as it's me and batteries. Those who try to touch me beware. I may punch you. I don't want to be touched, kissed, hugged...period. Back off. This is sacred ground, yo. Bummer, given the sensitivity of the lady bits! Maybe I will come around.
These are the big things I can think of. My body is not my own. It may never be again. And I wouldn't change it for the world :-) I am completely in love with my captors. They can keep me hostage. I can deal with it.

yesterday. He waddled like a drunk midget.
|Captor #2 yesterday. 12 weeks and looking good. 6 more days and we are in|
the 2nd trimester! Woot!
