Gender Differences Between Pregnancies

babysugar Diaries: Gender Difference

Random people always want to take a guess at a baby-to-be's gender based on the expecting mother's girth, fullness of face, morning sickness, or other factors. There may be some truth to those pregnancy myths, but I decided to be surprised in the delivery room. Now that I'm on the other side, I can look back and see differences between my pregnancies.

My daughter gave me a tinge of morning sickness with bouts of nausea and waves of tiredness. My son, on the other hand, left me feeling completely normal. I was hungrier with him but had serious cravings with her. I swelled with edema during her pregnancy while maintaining skinny ankles throughout his nine months. And not too surprising, he started using his athletic legs early in the womb with karate chop jabs to my abdomen, while I think she may have been studying ayurvedic yoga in utero.

Did you have dissimilar pregnancies with opposite sex babies?
