  • With my son, I was constipated for like the first time in my life...and that was just before I found out I was pregnant.I carried him low.I only gained weight in my belly and didn't eat like a horse,lol.
    With my girl, I carried her high. I had diarhea, not constipation,lol. I had a HELL of a time with the morning/noon/day/night sickness..the ENTIRE pregnancy AND I gained weight from my forehead down to my toes,LMAO.I was moody and bitchy and cried a lot and I was hungry all the time,even after I would puke from the morning sickness.
    Pregant my 3rd time...I have no idea what it is yet.But It feels different.I've had the morning sickness but no where near as bad with my daughter, I puke and then immediatley feel fine,which is weird.I'm carrying like the middle?I can eat, but only have gained 2 pounds(16 weeks tomorrow). I'm moody but not that moody.I don't know.It's weird.

  • I've had three boys, first pregnancy was a dream until the last month but I had HELLP. Second pregnancy, sick as a DOG the entire pregnancy, dizzy spells and all round in general miserable. Third pregnancy, occasional sickness headaches otherwise uneventful. Fourth pregnancy, we don't know what we're having yet but I was sick through the first trimester and it seems to be going away.

  • With my daughter she went straight to my butt. All the boys were right out front. While she was quiet and not as active. With the boys it was like I had gymnasium in there. Toward the end you could even see two feet on belly then see the butt roll by.

  • I know you asked about people who had both, and I also had 3 boys, but every pregnancy was totally different!! First pregnancy, sick as a dog, and lost 10 pounds by my 6th month, craved french fries and clam chowder...I know....who craves clam chowder when they're nauseated....Second pregnancy, very little morning sickness, craved crunchy breads and salads, felt amazing the whole pregnancy....Third pregnancy, not so much morning sickness, but pure exhaustion and sleepiness the whole pregnancy. I could fall asleep at a stop light waiting for it to turn green!! It was scary, no specific cravings.

    I was also told that a fast heartbeat was a girl slower boys, First baby was fast, 2nd & 3rd slower.

    And I carried differently with each pregnancy. The first one I carried all over, when I finally gained weight, the 2nd one I carried sideways, and the 3rd was right out in front......and yes I said they were all boys!!!

  • Heartbeat for all my boys was 140, steady through all the pregnancies. And, carried all three out front like a basketball and never really gained any weight anywhere else.
