I'm 5 weeks and already feeling shit, with groin type pains occasionally. Plus I have a sore lymph node swelling a bit under my jaw. Don't remember it being this way last time. What have others experienced?
my 2nd was a million times better than first! first time had severe sickness till the end and bad spd which had me on crutches at the end. 2nd time nothing! no sickness and no spd which i still cant quite believe! in fact 2nd time was so great am considering a 3rd which could never have dreamed of after the first!
Mine has been better this time round. Only three weeks off work in the first trimester with hyperemesis rather than 7 weeks. Once in 2nd trimester, have felt nearly "blooming" this time. Last time never felt better than "not bad".
I personally have found it easier to manage being pregnant and having a toddler and working three days than it was last time working 5 days but no toddler.
1st trimester was definitely worse 2nd time round, but feeling generally better now (23 weeks) than I did during first pregnancy. However all the aches and pains have started much earlier this time around.
This is pregnancy number 5 and is definitly the best early pregnancy out of all of them. The first two i was so sick, tired and emotional throughout, but I got more uncomfortable quicker in pregnancies 3 and 4. This time round im getting leg cramps already which is something i nearly always experience towards the end not the beginning. But everyone and every pregnancy is different!
I definitly recommend vitamin b6 tablets for sickness - i discovered them in my third pregnancy and they work wonders in reducing nausea and feeling crappy.
