Which pregnancy was harder for you?

I'm finding that this second pregnancy is SUPER WORSE than my first. My first pregnancy was a breeze. With this one I'm ready to kill myself.

So which pregnancy was hardest for you and what did you have?

*Second pregnancy harder and I'm having a boy.

  • My first pregnancy was the worst as far as morning sickness and being uncomfortable goes. But...labor with my 2nd was way harder than with my 1st or 3rd babies. I was in labor with my 1st for only 5 hours, My 2nd for 27 hours and my 3rd only 9 hours!!

  • My first pregnancy was the worst and I have 2 boys and 1 girl. I never really had morning sickness with any of them, although with my first I developed high blood presure. As far as labor goes all of mine were pretty easy, first was 5 hours second was 2 hours and third was 6 hours. The third one was the hardest because the second one was so easy and I got mad at the doctor, also they took her 2 weeks early because of what happened with my second one and I don't think she was really ready to come out yet.

    Good Luck and remember you might get more tired now because you have a little one that you are already taking care of.

  • I have 2 boys. My second was harder. Not because of sickness or anything though but because the drs unnecessarily scared the crap out of me and told me my son woud most likely have a chromosomal (downs sydrome) problem. He didn't.

  • My 1st & last were the worst. I had morning sickness worse with both of them, and honestly with the 5th child I was so ready for my pregnancy to be over I was willing to do whatever the doctor told me to make it happen. I got my tubes tied after that.

  • It's a toss-up between the pregnancy that ended at 17 weeks and the one that ended at 6 weeks as a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. Both pregnancies for my two boys were walks in the park compared to those.

  • Mine got progressively worse each time I got pregnant. Number 5 was my last, but I would have had at least one more if pregnancy weren't so bad!
