How this pregnancy is already different from the last one
For starters, I am less anxious, less worried, and less consumed by the desire to read all available pregnancy literature. I am also wiser - I know how to handle and interpret the signs and symptoms. Also, I know better than to embrace this as an opportunity for lounging and eating ice cream (so far) - although I admit that it is very challenging not to be able to easily accommodate my extra need for sleep. The first time around, the experience was so new that exploring and learning about it was an activity in and of itself. This time, I am wondering how I will manage all this without shortchanging Rebecca or myself or Greg.
