  • I was the other way around. I wanted my first to go a lot faster than it did, and almost felt like my second could go on forever for all I cared. It makes no sense, especially since I was so much more uncomfortable at the end with my second, but there it is. Maybe it was because I didn't mind the waiting the second time around, but I was anxious for my first to hurry up and get out, lol.

  • I feel the opposite! My first seemed to drag and drag forever, whereas this time has gone by TOO fast!

  • I don't know they both seem a blur now and I wish I could have been that 'happy part' of preg for a longer time; I had a nice window in the middle of both preg where I was just so at peace; I've never been that calm/content before or since. However the first LO sapped ALL my energy all I did was sleep sleep and sleep; I had to take naps during lunch and eat at my desk; even after sleeping 10+hrs a night; it was crazy! Then the 2nd was a crazy woman in there; I would have sworn there were three or four octopi in there as often and many places as I was being beat up!! lol
