How different is the #2 pregnancy from 1?

Postby Grae-Emma » Mon Nov 07, 2011 6:33 pm

Hiya all, Im ttc #2~ dd is 8... Just wondering how different anyone's second, third etc pregnancies were than their first? I hear you show sooner as everything is stretched? If it is already stretched, are there as many niggly pains?
Any thoughts welcome please!!!!

:hi: oh yes every pregnancy is very different. I did notice i started showing alot sooner with #2 and even sooner with #3. Its because your uterus never goes back into the same place as it was before children.sometimes the uterus can actually shift or tilt fowards after a baby.

Yep the showing sooner happened to me both times. Then with DS3 I had a lot of problems with my back and pelvis. It would kill me to roll over in bed. I used to have to psyche myself up just to roll over, it was horrible :( I'm sure it will happen again with baby#4 but at least I'll be more prepared.

With #2 I showed almost immediately, however, it was an easier pregnancy and deliver. My first was Sunny side up and labor for 3 days :shock: But with the second, I was able to walk myself into labor, and knew the difference from braxton hicks and true labor. So much so the dr said she wasnt sure if I was and kept me just in case. 2 hours later she was like youre a 10! 3 pushes later I had my second girl. Every pregnancy is different though, but from what Ive read most of them get much easier. Congratulations! And good luck hun!
