  • My first one was a tiny belly and the others were humongous!

  • I was a lot more tired with the second pregnancy in the first trimester. It felt like I was on some kind of sedative cause I felt so drained all the time. Of course I was chasing after a one and a half yr old dd at that point.

  • Biggest differences were:
    - 2 wks neaseau at 7 months with my first and neaseau 24/7 from day 1 until the day I delivered with my second
    - maconium in the fluid with my first (from stress) and clear fluid with my second
    - craved corn dogs and BK whoppers with my first and craved ANY cheeseburger, Pizza Hut Stuffed crust supreme pizzas and Cherry cheesecake With my second.
    - No sex drive whatsoever with my first and extreme sex drive with my second.
    Not sure about others but those are the ones that come to mind :)

  • I've really noticed the difference between my current pregnancy and my first. The morning sickness has been alot worse and continued longer than with my first, the fatigue is worse but I put some of this down to running about after a 3yr old as well as being pregnant, running the house etc I also found my bump is huge compared to with my first and I feel much more uncomfortable, I also felt this baby alot earlier than my first. My sex drive has ben less with this baby than the first also. I am also somewhat more relaxed andhave hardly read any pregnancy information as I did with my first.

  • mine so far have been:

    where the baby sits. My first was up high and toward my back. My second is out front and low. Which means I show A LOT more with my second and have stretch marks now thanks to my second, lol.

    food cravings are different as well as is sex drive.

  • My two pregancy was so different, everything was different. I am not sure if it had to do with age, my first I was 20 my second I was 32. I know my youngest was alot harder then my first.
