Just curious to hear other stories and opinions about how your subsequent pregnancies felt compared to your first or previous ones? Physically and emotionally?
Perhaps I am just getting sentimental (DS's CS is only 3w away) but this pregnancy has been completely different from DD, who is 10mths old now. DD is our rainbow baby after two we had lost early (first and second trimester). DS decided to happen when DD was 10w old, which was awesome. Perhaps the sentimentality is coming from the idea that DS might be when we call our family complete (I'd love more but DH needs more convincing lol, wish me luck).
DS has seemed like a breeze during pregnancy in comparison to DD, no oedema so far (my legs and feet were like sausages last time!), much less painful (only one side of my pelvis is sore this time lol). DD was large and breech, DS did his flip last week (oh bliss, less reflux and rib pain).
Sounds odd to say.... I am looking forward to DS's birth, whereas with DD at her birth I was still haunted by the feeling that 'something would go wrong' and couldn't start to relax until I had a healthy and content DD in my arms.
What have your experiences been like?
