  • My first 3 were all planned, but I was still nervous! Actually each pregnancy I got more nervous lol I dont know why, seems like it should be the other way around =)

  • I'm 30 weeks with my second and I'm very nervous! I think now that I know what to expect makes me more nervous. My son will be 2 years and one month when this little one is born so I'm wondering how things will be with a newborn and a toddler this time around. I have such a guilty feeling about bringing another little one into my son's world. I know everything will turn out fine, though.

  • my second labor was so fast and no contractions they had to induce it because my cervix was 6cm open and i wouldnt get contractiond i only pushed once and baby was out it was so awesome. the bad thing was with my second pregnancy i had so much morninf sickness during my whole pregnancyi had totake meds. and it was tireing because my son was only 1 1/2 so i had to be runing after him playing with him but i still think my second pregnancy was so much better than the first one best of lucks for you

  • Well for me, everything was a lot easier in the labor/delivery part since I refused an epidural :) But usually if you had a tough first delivery, the second is usually much better....good luck :)

  • this is my second Planned pregnancy, and im 34 weeks and nervous as well. i think because i know what to expect and the pain. my second pregnancy has been way worse than my first, morning sickness for 6 mos and im so miserable now i can barly walk and ive only gained 20lbs. my son is only 20 mos now and its hard to do things with him. im just ready to have baby and get back on track with both kidos. good luck!!
