I cant believe I am going to have #3!!<br><br>
I noticed a lot of us have already been through this before. Is it different for you too? This pg is soooo different already from my first two. I feel like everything is stronger--the nausea, my fatigue, the cramps/bloating.<br><br>
Plus, it is so cool to have kids who understand what it means for mommy to be preggers.

This is #2 and last night, dh commented on how different this pg was already from the last. Stronger cravings, more nausea, more moodiness. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I am really trying to get to a state of semi-balance again, if that is possible.

This is #3 for me and it's a totally different pregnancy! Overall I have easy pregnancies in that I don't have m/s and I generally love being pregnant. But this time, I'm having major food issues - not really m/s, but having strong aversions to most anything (especially if it's healthy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">), and not wanting to be around much food. With both ds's, I had 3 things I had to avoid: chicken, broccoli, and asian food. This time, there's tons of things I don't want to even cook for the kids and dh, let alone eat.<br><br>
I'm almost 10 weeks, so I'm hoping that this too shall pass and I'll get better about eating after the first trimester is done ...

This is # 2 for us & we have decided that 2 is it for us (unless of course this turns out to be twins!!)<br><br>
This pregnancy is much harder symptom-wise (constant m/s, lots of vomiting, lots of fatigue) but I am generally in a better mood. With my pregnancy with Caroline - we had just moved 3000 miles away from family & I didn't really know anyone. Now, we are more settled, I know lots of other moms, am friends w/ the neighbors, & DH has a more normal schedule too (he had a crazy rotating schedule during my 1st pregnancy).<br><br>
It's definitely tougher handling the fatigue/morning sickness while taking care of a toddler. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

#2 and things are definately stronger. The nasua is 10 times worse, I cry at the drop of a hat, and I feel more tired than I did with my DS. Luckily this is our last one. I don't know if I could handle it if a third pregnancy would be worse than this. LOL

This is number 2 for me. The nausea is by far worse, but other things (breast tenderness, sleepiness, etc.) are better. My husband wants 6, but this one's got both of us thinking we may have to adopt them all! We're LDS and I see all these pregnat woman at church, with at least 4 kids already, and they seem fine... I on the other hand have been too sick to even show up to meetings... maybe I'm missing some big Mormon mama secret... I'll have to ask around!

OMGosh!!! The crying!!! The littlest thing on TV will make me cry. I was even reading a cute book to ds#1 the other night about brothers ... nothing overly special ... and it got me all teary-eyed. I'm not one that likes to cry in front of others, and man that's getting quite difficult.

This is #3 for me as well! I am excited and intimidated as now DH and I will be officially outnumbered <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> So far, my morning sickness is about the same as it was with #2, the fatigue is worse, and the weepiness is WAY worse this time around. The heartburn this time around is the best though, but perhaps because I discovered papaya enzymes this time and gave up most of my coffee (still have 1/2 cup everymorning). I have noticed it is easier to think of things other than my bellybabe though. When I was pg with #1, time passed so slowly and all I could think or talk about was my pregnancy and now that this is #3, I still love talking about it but it just doesn't occupy my mind at the same stregth. I sometimes forget about it until I am wondering why I am so nauseated or sooooooo tired <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

well this is pregnancy #2 for us and I would say its just as easy as the first. The only thing that is different is I tend to get indegestion pretty easily which I never ever get. That and I dont seem to have as big a stomach and get full easily and thus get the indegestioin pretty easily. No huge cravings like my first which was all sweets, if anything lots of different things, that last through one eating then thats it no more! They only real different thing is being tired all the time. I never had that with my first, of course I only have one little bug at the time, and now chasing two around its a little tougher. Otherwise...picture perfect <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

#2 for us & the queasiness & food aversion is much worse, though I'm not as exhausted as I was the 1st time. I saved the pregnancy journal from before & some of the same issues have been happening at around *exactly* the same time- i.e. complete & utter indifference to the mess & clutter & absolutely no motivation to do anything.<br><br>
I can't wait for the cravings to start...as it is, I feel queasy most of the day & don't really eat. When evening comes, I'm HUNGRY (still don't feel like eating, though), and then I *have* to eat. Not only do I get ill if I don't have food in the bottomless pit, but I turn into a homicidal maniac (NOT kidding) when my blood sugar's wonky from not eating enough. Not good when you're hormonal, highly sensitive, and you have a hormonal, highly sensitive, demanding 3yo to look after... but other than the food thing (which is driving me nuts), I feel fine...

this is my third. This time is very different being that I've never had morning sickness like this before. Also the extreme exahaustion wasn't this extreme. Other than those two things everything else is the same, the sore boobs the peeing every hour.

This is our 2nd & so far I have had a much stronger aversion to foods. I haven't experienced any morning sickness yet, so hopefully it will stay that way.<br><br>

This is our 2nd as well, and I think I feel pretty similar to my first, but I don't think I'm as tired now. Although I have a 14 month old so I really can't afford to be tired!! I had more time to lie around on the couch and think about how tired I was the first time, kwim?<br><br>
I think I might be a little more queasy than with the first, but it's really not bad at all. Just every once in a while after I eat I don't feel very good. Also, I'm STARVING all the time because I'm nursing too. If I don't eat I get painfully hungry...

This is my 7th pregnancy, but will only be my 2nd child. I always have terrible nausea but not much throwing up, and have to pee every 5 minutes or so. That's exactly how things are going this time too. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sick"> And right now I'm extremely lightheaded and shaky. That's normal too I guess.

This is #2 and I also feel more tired and sick than before. It may partly be due to the fact that I am busier now and can't just lay around like I did the first time. I haven't gained weight right away like I did the first time, so that's good. I also cry easily, but did that before too. I heard some song on the radio today and started to cry, I had to turn the station. I am so thirsty also. All I do is drink and pee.

This is #3 for me and so far it's the easiest pregnency. My breast are a little tender, need to use the bathroom a little more, I'm a little extra tired and my nausea is really mild. I'm only about 6 weeks though so we'll see.
