  • My 3rd was the easiest by far. I think it just depends...

  • My third was my easiest. I had a little nausea vs 3 months of non-stop vomiting with the first two. So much easier. I was sicker with my second than my first though.

  • I just had my third 2 weeks ago, had a C-section this time, and was already dialated to almost a 6 by the time I got there, I only had like less than 10 contractions and was every 1-2min the switched to every 5min so it was weird. I only had him pushing down with his feet like half the day and it got more painful. since he was transverse, (sideways) but feet more down there, I had to have an Emergency C-section. I had a hemmorhage from 9-18weeks with this one, where I was bleeding here and there and sometimes heavy to where they said it was a threatened miscarrage but hemmorhages u bleed out sometimes. I also had some spotting at 30 1/2weeks and 32 1/2 weeks and then had steriod shots to make sure if he came early his lungs were ready but he didnt come till 38 1/2 weeks and was 8lbs 12oz!!! So this preganancy was worse but at least I could sleep all of it with no feet in my ribs like the other pregnancies ,lol.

  • Continued"""" The hemorhage lasted so long because my placenta was in the way and also with this pregnancy, I had a low placenta, like thats alot with this pregnancy!!!!!! The placenta ended up moving up where it should be and let the rest of the blood out. No more kids for me!!!

  • MAYBE.. and this is a big maybe.. it means you are having a girl this time. I was fine with my son for the most part.. but she ran me through the wringer with morning sickness, constipation, discomfort overall.. but I could bend easier with her. It's fun to speculate.. Sorry it's going rough... hope it gets better for you!
