Looking for some input from those who have...a few kids already! What changed as you had more than, 3, 4 children?
I'm on pregnancy and baby #5, and I'm just finding things....different this time! I realize that yes, maybe my body is different than with my first, and of course, I'm older. But I still feel young at 32, I'm healthy, eat very well, care for myself and pregnancy is usually a time of glowing health for me! I don't have many complaints, really, but I'm just noticing how those discomforts are showing up SO much sooner it seems!.I showed very early, felt the baby move much earlier than normal, Braxton Hicks early, my back is getting sore early, my varicose veins are aching early, have had indigestion already, and I just feel generally heavy, large-tummied, slower, winded etc. I AM taking care of myself, am staying active, doing lots of yoga, and I just feel like I should feel better still. I'm only 15 weeks.
So, is this normal? Did you hit a certain number and pregnancy just changed? Does your body wear out? What can I do to feel more vital and less 'pregnant'?
