2nd pregnancy completely different then first....

this is our second child. Our first is a rambunctious little boy who will be three in August. With my first there was no doubt I was pregnant!!! Constantly sick. With this one, except from being really tired and a little nauseous I feel fine. It's a little strange actually. And the excitement over the first was different from this one. Anyone else experience the same types of things?

Re: 2nd pregnancy completely different then first....

  • Me! My first, I just felt different. This time, not too much other than tired. No boob soreness, not much morning sickness.
  • Me too! My son will be 3 in July. I was sick as a dog my whole pregnancy with him. This pregnancy I have had very little nausea and have thrown up maybe three times. I am just about 10 weeks. I am ready for bed around 8 and my boobs (and hips!) hurt like hell... But I've had two miscarriages between my son and now, and a bit of morning sickness would be reassuring.
  • With My first who will be 3 at the end of January I had no symptoms other than peeing all the time. This one I'm nauseous all the time, exhausted, and my boobs feel like they are going to fall off. Completely different pregnancies so far.

  • Same here. With my first, who is turning 3 in July, ither than exhaustion in the first Tri, I was good to go. This pregnancy makes me want to stay in bed and not move ever. Sick, sore, tired, angry-name it, it's here and it needs to leave!!! I miss the simple pregnancy.

  • I feel the same way! I'm 12w4d. With my son (he is 3) I was nauseous and threw up every day. This time, I have been extremely tired and nauseous on and off, but only actually got sick a few times. There are lots of other differences too, but so far the only thing that is the same is my aversion to grilled chicken! It is weird how different the two have been.

  • My first will be 3 in September. I felt fantastic with him the entire pregnancy. I loved being pregnant.

    This pregnancy has been very different. I'm pretty miserable. I'm really sick and my boobs are much larger. I've thought several times, I don't know how I'm going to make it until January.

    I have some guilt about it. I felt in love with him from the minute I was pregnant. My pregnancy was magical. This time is different. Maybe I'm busier, or maybe it just hasn't sunk in yet. Both pregnancies were planned and took months to conceive. I haven't felt the joy and overwhelming love I felt the first time.

    I have anxiety about having enough time and love for both children. I'm nervous about juggling everything and feeling 'good enough'. I know these feelings are normal, but it's dampening my excitement.

  • Totally! With my first, I would never have known I was pregnant I felt so good! I was running 4 miles the day before the birth! My second? Awful 1st tri, and I was sloooooooowed down to stroll type walks by the end. This one is kind of in between.

  • Me too. Our son will be 3 on the 12th and my pregnancy with him was a breeze, barely any morning sickness, and just tired all the time. This pregnancy i have been constantly nauseous and can't find anything that sounds good. It really surprised me how different they can be!

    ^THIS.  All of this.  With my first, I had no pregnancy symptoms, was in skinny jeans until 6 months, and had tons of energy.  This pregnancy is the complete opposite. I've been nauseous the last three/four weeks, gassy, tired, moody, and have already grown out of my normal pregnancy clothing.  It broke my heart that I had to buy maternity clothes already when I was able to skate by last time with little to none.  Don't get me wrong, I'm excited I'm pregnant, I would just rather use our money for the baby and not to cover my growing [email protected]$. :)

  • Apparently in the minority here, mostly this pregnancy has been similar to DD's. Digestive issues are different and DD was still nursing when I got pg though has weaned completely in the last couple weeks, so my boobs haven't ballooned yet like they did before. But otherwise the nausea, exhaustion, odor sensitivities and food aversions are all the same.
    Maybe a little more bloated this time round because I feel like I'm starting to show sooner, but I know that's common for stms.

    Night and day over here!
    Last pregnancy there was little nausea until a few minutes before I vomited, and then I was good again. This pregnancy I'm nauseous 24/7 but haven't had any regurgitation (though I am on Diclegis this time around).
    Last pregnancy was diarrhea central, this pregnancy I'm lucky if I poop once a week.
    First pregnancy I was working an extremely physically demanding factory job no problem through until around week 15, this pregnancy I can barely muster the energy to shower.
    Last pregnancy I didn't really feel the need to pee all that much until baby got big enough to put real pressure on my bladder, this time I thought I had a UTI before I thought to take a pregnancy test because I was peeing so much.
    Hormones are weird, unpredictable little monsters!
  • Oh my! I'm in the exact same boat! My son (turning 2 in Jan) was the most exciting and easy pregnancy ever! This pregnancy has me soooo sick (physically, mentally and emotionally) that the excitement just isn't there. Even my husband notices the difference. He says its because our son consumes our entire lives all day every day....but I feel so much guilt and anxiety about feeling this way...hopefully it's just the hormones! Hugs and hopefully everything gets better as we go.
  • I'm in the same boat!
    I felt so fantastic with my son! (15 months)
    This time around I feel pretty miserable. Nauseous most every day, moody and pretty impatient. I thought I'd be less paranoid this time around, but I was wrong! Feeling the same paranoia and nervousness I did with my first, though you're right about the excitement level. It's different somehow, yet I'm still over the moon and so invested...
    I think it's normal. We've done it once. Also doesn't help if you're feeling crummy.

    I often say to my husband that I can't fathom loving anyone/anything like I do our son, but I know I will! It's so hard to imagine now, but so many second time Mom's say the same thing!
  • Yep! All three of mine have been vastly different from each other. First was bad and I swore I'd never do it again. Second was much better, third was the best and most enjoyable, and this one has been rough but also different from any of the others. It's amazing to me how pregnancies can be so different!

  • It seems easier this time.

  • So far it hasn't been too terribly different. I'm definitely more tired and need my after work nap to make it through dinner. Nausea hasn't been as bad but be lasts ALL day. I'm also more active this time around but waayy out of shape so that may be a contributing factor. Really curious how 2nd and 3rd trip are going to pan out.

  • My son turned 2 on April and with him I was just tired and my boobs were sore. This time no soreness but I've been nauseous the entire time.

  • I'm the opposite. With my first (who just turned 1) I had zero symptoms. This time.... Holy F$&k!!!!! Nauseous, headaches and dizzy. I'm convinced there is a little girl in me and she's already being dramatic.
