    Default How different were your pregnancies?

    I've just found out I'm expecting #2 and already can see/feel differences in the pregnancies.

    With #1 I was sick 24/7 and couldn't stand food to be anywhere near me. This time around I'm ravenous!

    With #1 I craved meat and fruit (was vegetarian for 12 years too). This time I want chocolate and biscuits and Mac cheese lol


    So, how were your pregnancies different?

    I'm only 12 weeks into my second but already they're so different!

    With #1 I was sick 24/7, couldn't stomach water most days. It got a bit better in the second trimester but hit again in the 3rd. When I felt good enough to eat the only things I wanted were hot chips haha.

    With #2 I've been sick, but only thrown up a handful of times. I can still eat most foods and I crave home cooked hearty meals, like stews, curries etc. I have gone off eveery drink that isn't water (which is good, it's kicked my cook drink habit!). In all, I've been way healthier this time around (so far). I also have way more energy. But I don't know if that is maybe because I have DD around so have no choice? haha

    I've wondered that too. I was falling into bed early every day with #1 but I'm not this time so maybe it's because I can't with DS around

    First 2 were identical, severe HG right from 5 weeks until 42 weeks with #1 and 34ish weeks with #2.

    This time still had Severe HG but it stopped by 17 weeks, had a heap of different complications and am much much more emotional this time around. And way more tired. But also enjoying it more and finding its going too fast and want it to slow down a bit.

    I had Symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) and carpal tunnel the first time, plus went 4 weeks early. I'm hoping this one is gonna be a whole lot different

    I've only had 2 but they were both very different.
    First pregnancy- no sickness, no cravings, didn't pop out til about 6 months,1.5hr labour.
    Second pregnancy- popped out heaps by 12 weeks, massive cravings, some sickness and very nauseous, 3.5hr labour.
    Both were boys as well.

    Pretty different.

    First I lost 10 kilos I'm first 3 months due to morning sickness, couldn't eat anything, then gained 30 kilos in last 6 months. Craved fatty foods, suffered heart burn, but slept pretty good. Didn't start showing till 5 months

    Second, not weight gained till 4 ish months and only 6 kilos all up, craves healthy foods, sensitive to smell. Showed in first trimester

    Was huge with both the end, labour was the same for both though.

    Completely!!!!

    Both pregnancies started off completely different. From m/s, ligament pain, cravings!

    Both boys :-)

    Labours & births were quite similar. Although ds2 was drug free & much faster.
