10 Bumps

Is the second pregnancy typically easier or harder than the first pregnancy?

Both the pregnancy and the labor? Is there anything that I can do to make things easier for everyone, (me, my husband, my son, and the one on the way)

  • Labour was much easier for me with my second, I was more relaxed and I had a waterbirth...no more land births for me! My pregnancy was not radically different, I was a bit more tired as I was running after a toddler and I had a bit more pain late in pregnancy in my pelvis (things just opened up a bit further!) Being relaxed really makes it so much easier mentally though. Third was even better :) Enjoy.

  • Each prenacy is different, both my pregnancy's where the same in difficulty but I was in better shape with my second one. The labor how ever was more difficult the second time as he came out the wrong way.
