I'm 6w2d with dc2.. I'm tired, Naesueas, headache and plus a teething 6 month old boy..

Also my stomach looks like I'm 3-4 month pregnant. My hubby is scared that I'm expecting twins because how quick my stomach is growing.. Won't get a scan until 20week..

How are you feeling? Was it different then with your first?

I'm 33 wks with my second and the pregnancy has been completely different to the first.
I was in maternity jeans by 10 weeks rather than 20 weeks last time. I had sickness until 22 weeks (none before) and I've felt pretty crap the whole time.
Sorry, this probably isn't what you want to hear!!
I think it's hard as you can't rest properly. My dd was 14 months when I got pregnant again so I've been running around after her nonstop.
My bump has been a lot bigger.
On the positive side I've felt more relaxed and not at all worried about the birth and everyone has says having a toddler and a newborn is easier than being pregnant and looking after a toddler. smile
Congratulations btw. Is not all doom and gloom! I'm just at the end now and I want my baby out and to get my body back!

My dc1 was 7 months when I fell pregnant with dc2

It was deffently a harder pregnancy
More tired plus bad spd which I didn't have first time round!

I then went for number 3 another four years later and wasn't quite as tired but the spd was awful and is still causing me pain now 11 months on

Sicker!!

But not as anxious.

No bump as yet, 10 weeks.

Hi im also 6 +2 , feeling sick, headaches and im looking 3 months pregnant my stomach has really blown out so not sure I can hide it till 12 weeks! I didnt show with my first child till I was 5 months, it must just be gas and bloating this time. Good luck smile

How come you wont get a 12 week scan? Are you outside the UK?

Oh and boobs don't hurt and aren't any bigger this time? Maybe because I'm still breastfeeding? Grateful anyway!

This is my second pregnancy and it is totally different to first time round! I get nauseous from 3pm onwards & incredibly tired. My boobs are huge, tummy is bigger & I just feel bleurgh.

Significantly harder than the first one. Still have constant nausea and exhaustion at 26 weeks, am working full time and DD1 likes to get up at 6am everyday. More stressed about the birth, as the last one was awful and really opened my eyes, but less worried about what to do with the baby once it is here.
