Cleveland, your wife sounds great - she's got you well trained, for one thing!
Hey Quinault, you're a rather brave soul...
Maybe if you have a higher starting level of hormones you won't be as sick when the mother lode of pregnancy hormones floods your body. I was definitely lucky to avoid the morning sickness, having instead gotten mood swings, depression, heartburn, acid reflux, multiple sinus infections, etc. Oh, well! We'll try for a smart one next time.
I think your theory makes sense - I do get the impression that I have a higher hormonal level than normal. But, other than the heartburn, I really enjoy being pregnant (I'm just so darned happy and mellow, and look my very best, albeit heavier), although the mood swings etc. and general nastiness do happen once I wean the babies. Mind you, the second pregnancy wasn't quite as enjoyable, but probably because I was raising a toddler and
working 60+hours per week. My doctor says my body loves being pregnant. I am really lucky in that regard. Unfortunately, I won't likely have another pregnancy; life circumstances won't probably won't allow it (for one thing, as much as I like pregnancy, it is exhausting; I cannot handle being pregnant again working as I do with 2 kids - I think I would completely lose it and everyone around me would suffer. And, in a few short years I'll probably be too old anyway).
