What Cravings have you had? Jalapenos by the handful straight out of the jar, pickles, salty chips, beef jerky, orange juice, onions, fish, lemons, peppers, taco bell pinto beans, pretty much anything acidic, salty or creamy.
With Jessie I drank tons of juice, loved tuna helper, and pasta.
With Audrey I ate strawberries and drank vanilla soy milk ALL the time. She's made of it!
What Aversions have you had? Don't really like sweet stuff right now, but if it's sour or chocolatey I will eat it. I don't like the same smells as I did when I wasn't preg.
I thought Adam smelled HORRIBLE when I was preg with Jessie, and was really hesitant to have sex with him. he grossed me out and it made me feel so bad!!
I don't think I had many with Audrey, or at least none that I can specifically remember.
How much weight have you gained? About 6lbs so far.
I gained about 30 extra lbs above my pre pregnancy weight, so about 55 or so with Jessie.
I didn't gain anything extra, but about 30lbs total while preg with Audrey.
How many Old Wives Tales were true? (if you know what you're having) I'm about half and half. Some of the ones that were right:
Orange Juice - I like it, they say that means boy. I usually don't care for it.
Carrying all in front this time, so boy.
I look good this pregnancy, so boy. lol
Crave salty and sour, which is boy.
Carrying like a basketball, so boy.
It was crazy wrong about the girls!

The weirdest thing anyone's said to you about your pregnancy: Not much so far. I had one lady tell me she craved Jalapenos and onions too and she had a girl, so I thought for sure I was! lol
I can't remember with Jessie, but this one lady asked if I was pregnant or just gave birth when I was 5 months along with Audrey.

Jessie was born in the Woodlands Hospital in TX
Audrey was born in an Army Hospital in GA

How did you find out you were pregnant? I was 4 days late, and took a test to ease my mind. I was so sure it would be negative, but right after I set it down on the counter it was positive.
As soon as the pee hit the stick it was positive with Jessie. I was 7 days late.
Same for Audrey
Did you cry when you found out what you were having? Yes, I did. Hehe
Nope and Nope.
