  • My second pregnancy was COMPLETELY different than my first. So much so that I believed the wives tales of it being the opposite gender than the first because I carried so differently and the 2nd was so much more active. But guess what....2 girls. LOL

    I carried much differently, my 2nd daughter seemed to do acrobatics while I was pregnant, I had different cravings and I had wretched heartburn. Luckily I was not ever plagued with morning sickness with either one...thank goodness for that!

    Good luck to you! Is your 2nd pregnancy different than the 1st so far?

  • I don't think there has been a SINGLE thing that HASN'T been different this time.

    I had full blown morning sickness with my daughter the entire 9 months. I lost 25 pounds in the first 4 months of pregnancy and only gained 6 back. I have gained less this time but had very little morning sickness with this baby. It was completely gone after 12-14 weeks. I'm WAY bigger, as in showing so much bigger, than I was with my daughter. I had hormonal surges with this baby that caused me to pass out. I never had that the first time.

    These pregnancies have been like night and day. I hope the same goes for my birthing experiances!
