How to prepare my self for a second pregnancy and labor?

My first pregnancy & labor was easy, but i have been told that your 2nd pregnancy is not the same as your first.

My first pregnancy was a complete breeze!!! Labor wsa another story... This pregnancy (25wks) Has not been kind to me at all. First pregnancy, no morning sickness, the only "issue" I had was Group B strep positive... if you could even could call that an issue. Labor was a long gruling process. This Pregnancy, morning sickness, puking my guts out at night. I had really bad heart burn issues, I've torn a ligamant plus still get sick from time to time. The ligament has me very limited, I cant do many vigerous activites, I cannot walk too much, I cannot sit for too long, because when I stand If i shift wrong it pulls, and I'm at risk for pulling more if I'm not careful. 

i dont think theres any way to prepare for any pregnancy. Just know the old saying "no pregnancy is alike)

  This pregnancy is sooooo much different than my first. My son was a breeze. I didn't gain much weight, I didn't have muscular or skeletal pain. Baby girl gives me new pains every day.

  Labor, on the other hand, with my son was AWFUL.. So I would love to see that be different this time. 

  Everyone is different, you might have it easy this time too.
