Every pregnancy is different...

Hi ladies!
I found out this week I am pregnant with my second baby! Very pleased. I’m 6 weeks on Saturday.

I KNOW it’s true that every pregnancy is different but did anyone freak out having their second because it felt so different to their first? I had constant morning sickness with my first from the moment I found out at 5 weeks! With this one I feel fine other than mega sore boobs and bloating at the end of the day!

I guess I’m just looking for reassurance. I totally know I have plenty of time for sickness to hit. I’m just being irrational and pregnant smile

Yes! My morning sickness was so bad with my first that I couldn't lift my head from my pillow for along time, I think it's inexplicable unless you've gone through it before but it was agony. My head was agony, I couldn't drink, I only learned AFTERWARDS that I should have been hospitalised! Anyway with my second I was fine, a little ugh at times and had bad headaches in second trimester but absolutely nothing in comparison to my first. They're both boys, just had vastly different pregnancies!

No morning sickness with 1 and 2. I did have it for 3. Congratulations! All three felt different to me.

Yes! With my first I was very sick from 6 weeks and it went on for most of my (horrible) pregnancy. With my second I was very sick from 6 weeks and it stopped at 13 weeks. With my third I had nothing until about 9 weeks when I was sick just a couple of times and a little nauseous. I also had some light bleeding with my third which I’d never had before so I was really worried. She turned out fine smile The EPU told me each pregnancy is different just like all babies are

Aw thanks girls! Reading these responses is very reassuring smile it’s so hard not to compare and then panic something is/will go wrong because I don’t feel exactly the same as three years ago hmm

I know I have loads of time for it to start but I would love to skip the sickness this time!!
