  • 3 pregnancies, 2 boys, 1 girl. I got the biggest the third time and he was the biggest. But I also dropped all the weight the fastest. As for pregnancy symptoms I had the same ones each pregnancy, just they were worse with the boys. :-)

  • With my first I was sick as a dog my entire pregnancy. With my second the nausea started out terrible again and I thought "please god not again", but it went away around the end of the first trimester. I'm pregnant with my 3rd, and what little morning sickness I had came and went in a hurry.

    As far as stretch marks...with my first, I came out of it looking like someone took a rake to my stomach. I don't think I've gotten anymore since then. It was destroyed. I hate to scare women by saying this, but I ended up with wrinkly skin on my belly from getting so big and then shrinking back down again...like a deflated balloon. My mother got the same thing. We inherit our skin elasticity. So basically mine just filled back up each time, but &*%*$^*^(*(*&%^*^ its never gonna look right again anyway :( LOL

  • Had bad morning sickness with all three, but worst was the 2nd, my daughter. And, amazingly enough, I never got one single stretch mark through all 3 pregnancies.

  • All three of mine were different. My first, a girl, I gained 35 pounds but it was all baby. Just a little round belly. My second, a boy, I gained the same 35 pounds, but I looked huge....like fat huge. I was sick for the first 9 weeks, then it was great. He was nine days late. My third, a boy, I was sick just like my second but I only gained 25 pounds. He was 12 days late. I only got two stretch marks on one boob, of all places, so I can't help much there! Congrats!

  • It really depends. I have heard that if you got stretch marks with your first, you will more than likely get them with your following pregnancies as well.. not sure how true that is.

  • I have six kids. I never got a stretch mark on my tummy till baby #5. I had horrid morning sickness with all of them (4 girls & 2 boys...not in that order though lol)

  • All three of my pregnancies were vastly different.
    1: had stretch marks, 1 month of morning sickness, didn't show until 6 months
    2: Had gas so bad i thought i was dying (the bloating kind not the stinky kind)
    3: Heart burn and neausea the entire nine months but labor only lasted 1 hour.
    Good luck with your new prego status!!!
