Pregnancy Pregnancy

Do you feel more pain with the second?

 I have noticed that I am in a lot more pain with this baby. With my son I was very active, and felt great. With this one, it hurts to stand for more than 5 minuets.

 I know every pregnancy is different, I was just wondering if "typically" you feel more pain with the second child, and if that carries on to labor and delivery?

Hmm Im only 9 weeks so I don't know yet but it seems like my symptoms early on were stronger or more noticeable then last time.

 She is WAY more active than my son was too.. and I think I'm having sciatic nerve pain, but every time I bring it up to the doctor they tell me I need more potassium... It doesn't matter how many times I tell them it's not cramping, it's just pain.

I feel more pain currently than I did with my first. I swear this baby is ready to be born by the amount of weight she puts on my insides. lol. I'm more active this time (mostly due to my first still being a toddler). My baby is a lot more active too. My first would only move around late at night or when he had the hiccups. If he didn't have the hiccups no one but my SO got to feel him move. This one though, moves constantly, I think I'm getting sore from that as well. lol

I am in HORRIBLE pain with this one, but this is my third pregnancy... my second was more painful than the first... Labor with my little guy was easier than my first... I did it with no pain meds or anything... just pushed him right out! :)

Oh yeah I also got/still get morning sickness a lot more than with my son. My whole pregnancy with him I got sick less than 10 times. I have lost count with this one.

 I hope this happens with me.. My son was 36 hours of back labor and 2.5 hours of pushing. I would be SOOOOO happy if she didn't give me so much trouble.

 I had none with my first. But baby girl made me sick for two weeks.. I had to go to the hospital for fluids because I wasn't keeping anything down.

The pressure I feel is something that has been bothering me. I feel like I'm going to go into premature labor or something.
