  • I only had two, the youngest of which is almost 21, I can't remember if I was sicker with her or her brother. I do remember that when I was pg with the son, the older one, I had heartburn almost from the day I got pg. Of course everybody and their brother had advice on what I should eat, shouldn't eat, positions to sleep in...etc...etc...! It didn't matter, nothing helped except finally just having him. With the DD though, I didn't have one bit of it. I've always wondered if it was because one was a boy and the other a girl, lol but not curious enough to have another one to test my theory.

  • Every pregnancy is different, You may not have the same symptoms at all with each one.
    1st pregnancy - NO symptoms at all , If I wouldn't had gained weight I wouldn't had known I was pregnant.
    2nd pregnancy - morning sickness on and off the WHOLE pregnancy
    3 rd pregnancy - I am 10 weeks and have been horible sick, sore, tired, and cranky. The whole mess.

  • My morning sickness got progressively worse with each pregnancy. With my first, I barely had any at all. By my 4th I was sick the entire 9 months, 24/7. I'm at 21 weeks with my 5th and hoping it doesn't stay around the whole time again!

  • I have 2 DD's and with both pregnancies I didn't have morning sickness, heartburn, nothing at all. I am almost 28 years old and I haven't ever had heartburn. The only way I new was a missed period and weight gain that was it.

  • With my first I had morning sickness for the first three months, my boobs were tender. With my second I only knew I was because I missed my period 3 months in a row. I had no symptoms with him whatsoever.
