Anyone else have a fairly easy pregnancy?

I am 31 weeks pregnant with my first child. I had no morning sickness, not much back or pelvic pain, mild swelling so far, no hemorrhoids yet (fingers crossed), not very tired or worn out etc... I am just wondering is it all going to get really bad soon now that I am into my 3rd trimester? From all the horror stories I have heard from other women I am expecting it to get a lot worse soon. Anyone have a similar situation with their pregnancy? What was your experience like??

  • I had a very easy pregnancy. I was 20 years old didnt get very big. No morning sickness, no pains. The only pain I had was when I gave birth. I wont lie that hurt until the epidural kicked in. But it was all a breeze for some reason and everybody said, it is gonna get worse in the 3rd trimester. It never did.

  • I could do pregnancy every day. Labor and delivery were pretty easy too.

    Some people just like to complain.

  • Most women don't like me in pregnancy conversations because I can't play the "my pregnancy was worse than yours" game. I had great pregnancies and very short labors. 1st was 6 1/2 hours. 2nd was 1 1/2 hours. And, my kids were hardly ever sick. No runny noses, ear infections, coughs, etc. It's nice to learn there are actually more out there like me. :-)

  • Mine were both relatively good though my second was better because I was only working part time vs. full time. I felt pretty good and had no major problems. The first birth was a little complicated but even that could have been a lot worse!

  • My first trimesters are always rough, and then the second and third are pretty easy. With my daughter I had PIH :( But other than that I was totally comfortable the whole time. With my son I got a little achy, but it was still a really easy pregnancy. He was 4 pounds bigger than my daughter and was SOOO much easier to birth lol.

  • My first 3 pregnancies were awesome. No complaints what so ever. I thought I could be pregnant a million times. But my 4th and 5th have been miserable. We were hoping to have 6 but adoption is sounding better and better everyday. I think as someone said some people like to complain but I also think that being pregnant ranges from being fairly easy to being awful.

  • This current pregnancy with twins, heck no!! With my daughter I felt amazing. No symptoms and I worked over 40 hours a week until 3 says before I delivered. I wish they could all be that easy for everyone
