What should I expect?

I am planning my first full term pregnancy. I've been pregnant twice before but I've never made it past 3 months. (The first was an abortion at 2 months. no bashing please. you dont know my story the second was a miscarriage at 3 months). I had horrible morning sickness with the first. I was a smoker then (not any more) and threw up at the smell. Threw up all day long, actually. The second time I had no morning sickness. So i know each pregnancy can be different. But ...is there anything other then what is widely known that anyone can tell me about? Those little details that are hard to find in a book or online? or even personal stories about what it has been like for you. Thanks.

  • I was sick 24/7! Even during labor and delivery. Oh, yeah, people don't really tell you, but the contractions might make you nocious. I even vomited some blood, because my stomach was hurting from all the puking. Good luck! How far along already?

  • I'm sorry, I'm confused. What do you mean you're planning your first full-term pregnancy? Are you almost ready to deliver?

  • I had morning sickness for the first 5 months. I had horrible first trimester stretching pains. I was energetic my second trimester and big as a house for the third trimester. At 37 weeks my son turned and was laying in my hips and pinched the nerves to both legs and they felt tingling like when your foot falls asleep. It made walking difficult.

  • how far along are you? i had a miscarriage with my first a 2 months.with my 2nd, i had a girl.i stayed sick with her for 4 months.had terrible back labor in the end.she came out face up.nothing major just makes it harder to push the baby out. and it was another reason i had such bad back labor. i didnt really have anything out of the ordinary happen while i was preggo with her though.just the basic stuff you read about. I am currently preggo with a boy due in july. i am 25 weeks now.still get sick. started getting kidney stones with him(yes it can at times be pregnancy related). i keep major heartburn..even if i dont eat anything spicy or foods that cause it. i get leg cramps constantly.im carrying him low so my back hurts alot...theres lots of diff things that happen during pregnancy. congrats and goodluck
