Hi...this is my second pregnancy. i have a wonderful almost 3 year old. but i just dont feel as elated as i was with my first. i feel like my life is going to start to fall apart. does anyone else feel this way? i sure hope this isnt a sign that i'll have ppd. thanks

Just like each preg is different, you're probably having different feelings in this one than last. I bet it's perfectly normal.

Hi chrissy, I feel the same way. With my son, who is 16 months, I was excited and just couldn't wait to start shopping for clothes and things, read everything about pregnancy, etc. With this pregnancy I am just blah. I wonder if it because I know what to expect this time, sometimes I feel like I have lost a part of myself along the way, too. I worry more about getting fat with this one because I gained too much last time, and I get scared thinking about having 2 in the house. And, I am a student, and a stay at home mom and sometimes that drives me crazy being home, but I just try to tell myself that I will have my degree and start working soon. Sometimes I completely forget that I am pregnant, its like, oh yeah I am. And this was planned, I just wish I could have the same feelings that I had with the first.

I was extatic with my first.. but I still got PPD in the hospital and a couple wks later... I'm preg. with my second, and I am really happy, but I think because it's been done before, and nothing is as New this time around, your just more relaxed, and your busier as well, because you have a little one at home, so you have less time to lay around and feel the baby move etc... I find myself SO busy... I have a 5year old so I have to take her to school and back etc.. and plus I'm babysitting a few kids right now so my life is just hectic for now.. But I'm still really happy and looking fwd to meeting this one, even if I lose all my SLEEP. I hope my ppd wont be as bad this time around, I Think I'll be fine.. I will just get a little cranky with no sleep.

im not to sure if i had a real emotional day when i posted or if all the posts are really helping me out, but i feel so much better lately. does anyone else go through these mood swings? thank you


Terra - November 22

I haven't really been having "mood swings" as in getting angry quick but i have been really emotional.. Over silly stuff, like teary eyed over something that is on tv, that isn't even Happy or Sad... And every time I get too bloated lets say, this may sound funny.. I get all worried because when I get that Hard around the tummy, I don't feel as much movement.. Then I get worried.. So been up and down with worry and excitement.. But not too snappy, although some family members will say I have my moments
