I am pregnant with my fourth and let me just say that each pregnancy was totally different from the last.One was high, one was low, one was carried in my hips, etc. It's a whole new experience.

I had a weekend type flu with my first pregnancy, it was vicious(sp?)(girl).I had not a thing with my second(girl).With my third i was not at all hungry unless it was fruits and veggies(fresh one's only)(boy).And with this one (11w3d) I was very nauseous until my tenth week.Also with my son sleep was a neccesity and i was tired constantly.This pregnancy i'm fairing better as i am not a sleepy.Thank Goodness!So each and every pregnancy was a whole new ride.LOL

This is my second pregnancy and I think everything is a lot different. Though at the time I found out I didn't know that I was pregnant with twins so that makes a huge difference. I am always hungry, and very tired. I strat my 11th week tomorrow. Can't wait for week 12!!!!

this is my second pregnancy, and so far there are only a few slight differences. I have worse heartburn, my b___sts actually hurt (and have grown) more than last time, and my morning sickness isn't quite as vicious. I also had more cramping during the first two weeks and my pelvic bone seems sore when i sit too long. But mostly, it's alot like the last one. I am almost 8 weeks now, so i still have a while to go, so i'll let you know later on if anything else is different. I am very curious to see how i will carry this time (last pregnancy was very inside for the first two trimesters and then i carried a basket ball out front). I didn't show with my last pregnancy until i was 23 weeks (when i woke up one morning with a huge belly) so i'm wondering when i will show this time. I am very small (5'4 115lbs.. 112lbs before first pregnancy) so i keep thinking i should have shown earlier, and should with this one, but who knows!! congrats on your baby and let us know how your doing.

This is my second pregnancy. I'm only 6 weeks right now, but it's already completely different than the first. I haven't really had any morning sickness at all. I had it bad with my daughter. I've also been eating everything in sight which I did not do the first time. One big difference is that I've had some bad headaches. Another thing I've had this time only a couple of times is very little brown spotting. The nurse said it's of no concern because it's not red and I'm not cramping. One thing that has not changed is my exhaustion. I can't hardly stay up past 9:00. My husband has to wake me up in the recliner every night to go on to bed. Having a 2 year old to watch after is making this early pregnancy more exhausting.

Becky I totaly agree I'm so tired come 6:00 pm I can hardly get through maken dinner,but as soon as my son (2 1/2) go's to sleep at 8:00 I'm out!

 

lilmum - April 12

i am just as tired with this one as i am with my last, except not only do i have my own 19 month old, i run a dayhome!! i have no idea how to keep up with so many toddlers at once and i am doing well, i am just exausted by the end of the day i sometimes don't even get to eat dinner because my husband gets home and i fall asleep on the couch. I don't get naps very often as it's hard to get the kids to sleep at the same time (and feel confident i have enough time to nap myself). Any tips??

 

Milissa - April 12

Lilmum you are CRAZY girl" I have no Idea how you are doing it and no psycho chick? WOW, sorry have no advice I don't no what to even say beside vacation

 

lilmum - April 12

LOL, no i'm not crazy. This is much better than my last pregnancy, i was a bartender and i worked split shifts (10am- 2pm and again at 5pm - 10pm). This is much better, i can sit more if i need to, we just don't go outside as much as the kids would like, but i don't have the energy to run after three or four toddlers/preschoolers. How many hours of sleep are you guys getting? Why doesn't 10-11 seem like enough??

 

Milissa - April 13

lilmum> Ya I guess you are right, I no all to well about those split shifts. I used to be a waitress and there was a big a__s line come 6:00 + the weekends working split shifts. I worked so hard sometimes that I would not even remember how i just did all of that! I am a homemaker ( you know the ones that don't do anything blaa blaa) I'm so sick of who works harder ( homemaker/working moms) it the same thing! we are moms and we WORK" I go to bed at 8:00 pm sometimes till 7:30am i'm okay during the day but come evening I'm soo tired!

This is only my first pg, but I am so glad to know that I am not the only out there who is sooo tired! Everyone kept telling me about being tired, but I never imagined it would be this bad! People just don't even realize how exhausted you feel. I hardly even clean my house and I am a neat freak1 It drives me crazy, but I just don't have the energy to do it.

 

Andrea - April 14

Hi, this is my second pg too. I'm 10 weeks along and I've noticed differences in this pregnancy. Like my b___bs are not sore at all. I guess this is a good thing, but I'm small chested and look forward to any increase in size :-) I also am not as tired as I was with the first one and have almost no nausea. I pretty much don't feel pregnant at all, but my doc says I'm healthy so I'm happy.
