did you have worse symptoms the more pregnancies you had?

I'm newly pregnant with DC4. With the others I felt a little queasy and had backache occasionally but other than that I breezed through pregnancy. This time, I feel awful. I've felt sick all day every day since even before I missed my period. I've been so tired I've had to stop driving at times and gave nearly fallen asleep reading stories, even in the morning. My mouth is always so dry and I need to pee constantly. The bloating is making me look about 4/5 months pregnant and I'm only actually about 7/8 weeks. I only had my last baby 2 years ago, so it's not as though as I'm significantly older during this pregnancy.

I haven't fancied food for a month which is so unlike me! I appreciate every pregnancy is different but I feel so awful a lot of the time, it seems so dramatically different that DH is panicking that it could be twins. Did anyone else feel particularly bad with their fourth?

I'm on my third and have more symptoms this time.
The other two seemed a breeze compared to this one.

They do say that the more kids u have the more chance of having twins though. When I went for a scan with this one the scanner lady even said "ooh you're 3rd? Could be twins then" is said oh yeh?? She said yep it's very common

On my third pregnancy and yes the sickness was worse, ligament pain worse. So much more tired than I was with the other two. Not enjoying this pregnancy as much as the others, which is a shame.
