anyone elses 2nd pregnancy worse than your 1st?

they say second pregnancies are generally easier to deal with than 1sts, but with me it was the complete opposite! my pregnancy with my daughter was a piece of cake, never had any problems, never got sick, went into labor at 7 a.m. had her at 1:18 p.m. but THIS pregnancy..oh dear lord! i'm sick ALL the time! i'm 18 weeks, i was praying to God the sickness would have let up after my 1st trimester but it didn't! :( other than the sickness everything else is fine but holy crap its terrible and NOTHING works to get rid of it! :(

  • My second pregnancy was horrible. I was in constant pain, I had morning sickness, I had painful contractions from about 30 weeks. I had a horrible time of it that pregnancy. He was my easiest delivery though. I was scared to get pregnant again, but my third pregnancy was a breeze like the first.
    Good luck... it won't last forever.

  • I wasn't terribly sick w/ either of them (sorry) but my first was a nice calm baby; and the second...I swear she had 8 arms & legs in there that *never and I mean never* stopped moving it was insane...otherwise the rest of it was similar...

  • No. I was in pregnancy prison for 5 of my last 6 weeks. AS in, I lived in a hospital room. It sucked. I went into early labor and remained there. I had a 1 year old at home and we were military and away from family. My mum and dad couldn't come help out because my dad had back surgery. It wasn't great, but here we are.

  • Each pregnancy for me has been progressively worse.

  • With my first pregnancy it was simple and easy as well as delivery and I was induced three days early with cervadil. From the minute my contractions started with my daughter til I had her was 12 hours. My contractions were about 7 minutes apart the whole time I pushed for 1 1/2 hours. My second pregnancy I had a low lying placenta (eventually moved with my uterus) so I was worried about that for about about 3 months and my labor was HORRIBLE. Contractions started at 6:45 am they were about 15 minutes apart for about 2 hours, then they were 3 minutes apart. I didn't have him until 11:17 PM labor was 16 1/2 hours and I only pushed for 15 minutes but it was the worse 15 minutes ever. It hurt to push and hurt not to push so I just got him out as quick as I could. With both kids I had nubane for a pain reliever. Worked GREAT the first time and only lasted 30 minutes the second time

  • My first one the pregnancy was good I had no problems at all. My second one the pregnancy was harder but the actual delivery was a lot easier. I'm on my third and last one now so we'll see how this one goes, so far it hasn't been too bad. I hear you about being tired though, there are some days where all I want to do is sleep but of course I can't.
