  • depends of the woman and the pregnancy.
    I have 3 children... 2 girls and 1 boy.
    Out of the 3... my pregnancy with my son was the worst for me... I was sick all the time...tired.. achey.. threw up alot.
    With my girls... it was a cake walk!!!
    Although i had the BEST labour and delivery with my son. He shot out after only 1 hour of labour and 4 pushes.

  • My girl was certainly harder than this pregnancy (having a boy). I was sick as a dog most of my pregnancy with DD. With DS I've had no sickness whatsoever.

  • It seems like it for me! I breezed through my pregnancy with my daughter, hardly any symptoms, no morning sickness at all....with this one (due in June) everything hurts all the damn time lol, I had morning sickness for the first 4 months, my feet and ankles are so swollen it looks like I have thighs all the way down lol....yeah for me a boy is way harder

  • I think it really depends. When I was pregnant with my son I was a cashier at a large retail chain. They WOULD NOT let me out of that little area. It stank. I was forever runny my tummy into the corner of the conveyor belt when I turned. Sitting on a VERY uncomfortable stool either put me too far away from the scanner, or too far away from the register. It was horrible. I was SORE for the last trimester and just miserable. And that's NOT counting that it was one of the hottest summers on record that year.

    When I was pregnant with my daughter I was going to community college and had arranged my schedule to do a LOT of TA work for my favorite instructor.I could sit, stand and shift position in class. He was also a forgetful one so I'd get to go walk from one end of campus to the other to get things from his office that he'd forget. And I could take my time about it. I was NOT as miserable as my first.

  • I only have a boy and my pregnancy with him was a cake walk (besides a few weeks of moderate morning sickness in the beginning) I'm actually afraid to get pregnant again for fear I had it TOO easy the first time!!
