The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I hate to compare my kids before the second one is even born, but this pregnancy has been very different than the last one so far. Beyond the possible miscarriage scare at seven weeks and the fainting spell at nearly twelve weeks, I've suffered constipation, round ligament pain and back problems (which I have normally, but not while pregnant with Henry). And possibly most annoying of all, my left ear keeps plugging up to the point that I can hear my own heartbeat and breathing.

On the plus side my complexion is flawless, whereas when I was pregnant with Henry my skin was so broken out I resorted to using Proactiv.

Okay, so that's really the only improvement over last time that I can think of. But I've started feeling the baby move in the past few weeks, and having a physical reminder of the little one inside me more than makes up for it.
