  • every pregnancy is different. with my second I gained alot of weight, and had cravings for high calorie things, with my first didn't have any, and only gained some.

  • I think so cuz my 1st pregnancy was great
    but my 2nd! o lord it was HARD!
    He was under weight from 4 months till I 6 months pregnant
    and when I was 7 months I started to bleed "down there" had to got to the ER but it was "normal"

  • Had 4 pregnancies all were slightly different in wieght gain, but that was about the main difference. All were the same sex, so not sure if that plays a role in it.

  • I think that everyones experience is going to be different. My first and second pregnacy were easy, just normal pregancy problems but my third was a totally different story.

  • my 2nd was easier. my 1st i had really high bp and that came with a lot of bad stuff. my 2nd i had none of that, just went 3 weeks past my due date! im in my 3rd now and its been easy so far except for everything gives me heartburn!

  • Not necessarily - all pregnancies are different .

  • No, I wouldn't say so. I think it depends more on you and your body...also how soon after the last it is. My two kids were 21 months apart...both pregnancies were nice and smooth.
