What was different for you during your 4th pregnancy? My MS is no where near as bad, I usually start at 3wks pregnant, I'm Queezy sometimes, but it's bearable! I have been having seen down aches and pains the past week every night and the peeing is insane!!! It's a lot different this time! I am part worried about after birth pains this time too! They were unbearable last time and I needed medication!

4th timers - what was different?

My 4th was total opposite of previous 3. No ms, felt great and not pregnant at all except growing belly, although the 3rd trimester was tough due to sciatica which was horrible. After birth pains were excruciating, i never had them with other 3 but holy wow give me contractions and birth any day!

MS was probably the mildest with my fourth too. The whole pregnancy was very smooth really, I had a lot of aches and pains with my third until she decide to come slightly early at 36 weeks but my fourth pregnancy was more like my second where I had some niggling pains like my ribs and back hurting but nothing like my third. I ended up being induced at full term this time and had my best birth overall. Afterbirth pains were the worst out of the lot for me but not as bad as contractions, I did need some Panadol for them the first few days. Oh and breast feeding was the smoothest ride yet too, we went until she self weaned recently at 18 months.

This is my fourth pregnancy and I'm nearly 17 weeks. Morning sickness is more constant nausea than I had with the others, and I'm so much more tired!
I'm a lot bigger as well, so in pretty sure I'll be the size of a house by the time hub comes.

Looks like we have a fairly consistent consensus here! I woke up feeling nauseated this morning but it's gone now, very different to my other times! I am not looking forward to the after birth at all!!!

My fourth pregnancy was my worst. Horrible ms from 6 weeks til around 14w, I was hospitalised for it at about 9 weeks. Very uncomfortable and varicous veins came back with vengeance. I needed to be induced, but it went smoothly. After birth pains were not nearly as bad as with my third. They only lasted the first day. Good luck!

Not enjoying this forth pregnecy at all. Morning sickness has only just stopped in the last few weeks I am 30 weeks (I think, could be more lol). I think it is so much easier when you are younger having babies. I had my first at 24 and I am 39 now and feel exhausted. I am at higher risk for trisomy 18 but did not go threw with the amino, partly because of the risk and partly because i am needle phobic, I am quite stressed that there will be something wrong with the baby. I am Having scans every month and there are no markers so far, but will not know for sure until baby is born.
To top it all of they are saying I have gestational dieabeties ,in the past before the changed to the requirements I would not have met the criteria, my fasting & two hours after gluose were fine but my one hour was just over. Really stressed out about this as I can not handle needles at all.
I have become very depressed and having issues at home with DH. My older kids are not coping so well with my depression and i am the worst atm can't do or say anything right. My three year old is acting up so much lately and I am starting to question wtf I am doing having another baby when I can't even handle her.
my back is hurting I feel uncomfortable in this heat and this justs sounds like one big whinge but I am really not coping with this pregnacy can't wait till it is over but than I am not looking forward to what may come in the future.
