very healthy, no sicknesses other than a few sinus problems or migraines (found out thats what they were this year after having around 6 of them and being sent to a specialist), only gained 15lbs with him, he was born on his due date- weighed 8lb1, but he DID have jaundice when he was born.  I rarely even used tylonal when I was pregnant either :/ or when I nursed.

I was sick for a week flu or morning sickness. I'm not sure throwing up bad. But I never get flu. After that I was fine. No problems but he was born early

I didn't have any health issues when I was pregnant, but I did have some serious road rage. He was overdue and I had to have a c section. He was a healthy baby-no issues.

I had gestational diabetes, terrible morning sickness, was in a minor car accident, pre -eclapsia, and gall bladder needed to be removed but had to wait until after she was born. She was born 3.5 weeks early during labor my blood pressure went through the roof and her heart rate kept dropping to dangerous levels. The nurse told us it was touch and go. The labor and delivery where only about 15min I was induced. She also had jaundice.

With Molly (1 yr old NT) I had gestational diabetes, blood pressure kept fluxing all over the place, norovirus and was hospitalized for sever dehydration, false labor, low fluid. She decided to come 3wks early no delivery problems. Some jaundice but cleared in a day just being in the sun light.

My pregnancy with ds was the easiest I've ever had (and he's one of almost 4 kids). I never had any side effects, if it weren't for the movements and weight gain, I wouldn't have even known I was pregnant. He was born at supposedly 36 weeks weighing 8 lbs 2 oz after 2 hours of labor

It was an easy pregnancy. I didn't even feel pregant until I started to show and feel the baby. I didn't have GD or anything.

Mine was high risk due to a previous ectopic in which I'd had part of my uterus removed.  It was also high risk due to low amniotic fluid levels throughout my pregnancy and the fact that he measured large all through the 2nd/3rd trimesters.  My son was born 5.5 weeks early due to fears of my uterus rupturing and pre-eclampsia, however he was perfect, had no lung issues and didn't even need to go to NICU.
