I do remember being alot more tired and run down with baby number three. Also, looking at pictures, I showed ALOT earlier and got ALOT bigger overall (but he was a big baby at 9 1/5 lbs!). Can you imagine how Mrs. Dugger feels at baby #18? I think I would just lay in bed and sleep all day every day until I gave birth. :)
Yes! I think it's a hard thing to transition from one to two, then from two to three. Usually when you'r pregnant the first time you can relax and rest and really pamper yourself. Not so easy when you're pregnant the second time and pretty much impossible when you're pregnant with the third.
But try to relax as much as you can . . . give yourself a break when you can!
ha! yes, i just had our fourth and I kept saying, "I'm not as young as I used to be," and pregnancies are easy breasy for me, but I was definately slower and more tired with #4. I chaulked it up to age. I was 20 with my first and 27 with my fourth.
Every pregnancy is different-Im on my third as well, fifteen weeks today, and while I would say at the beginning I was really tired, now that Im thinking about it I dont know that it was more so than the first two. I know I dont have as much time to eat so Ive gained way less so far than with the first two and that drags at my energy and Ive been getting a LOT of headaches, which I didnt have so frequently before. Otherwise, I feel pretty well the same-pregnant and eager to finish so I can have my baby. :-) Good luck!
Normal. You're body is older, and you have two other people to look after.
my 3rd baby will be one year old in Feb. and her preganancy was SO much easier then the two boys. i didnt have any horrible symptoms i worked my whole pregnancy and took care of my 4 n 1 year old (know 2 n 5)
my second preg. was the pregnancy from he** lol i had every symptom in the book, backache, headache, sciatic nerve pain, vision changes...you name it i had it...the kid still causes me the most trouble too haha
