My first pregnancy with dd1 was awful, exhaustion and morning sickness lasting the whole time.
With dd2 I also had morning sickness, but not quite so bad and generally I felt quite well.
With this third baby, it's my best pregnancy yet, some morning sickness but not too bad at all. The main problem is that I'm a lot bigger this time and I have some varicose veins which I didn't have during my first two pregnancies. I can still do everything fine though. We don't know if it's a boy or a girl.
My third pregnancy was more tiring with having the other two but was the best I think. I was alot lighter when I embarked on the pregnancy though so don't know if this helped or not. After the initial early weeks of tiredness and sickness I was full of energy and painted most of the house! Also with my first pregnancy I had a heavy bleed, with my second things came up on the scan whoich meant having an amnio so was very worrying. I was much more hormonal during my third though.
1st pegnancy good, birth bad 45 hours long with too many stitches after 'normal delivery'. Girl 4 weeks early 14 years later pregancy no 2 pregnancy ok bit tired. Was told it would be like first time delivery due to long gap. They lied she came on day she was due and took 4hrs not 45 hrs. Pregancy no 3 wait and see
I have 3 and all three pregnancies were quite bad. With dd I had PE and delivered at 36 weeks after early contractions for a couple of months and frequenet hospital stays/visits.
With ds1 I had early contractions and needed steroid injections early on again, as with dd. I had a long pre-labour too and gave birth at 38 weeks.
Ds2's was the worst, my waters broke at 22 weeks and I was on bedrest for the remainder of my pregnancy. I had steroids, anti biotics, weekly hospital visits and blood tests, loads of scans to check the baby and fluid levels and finally made it to 39 weeks as my waters stopped leaking at about 34 weeks and I refused an induction at 37 weeks. He was also posterior so it was the most painful.
With all I gave birth naturally with a little gas and air, the amount I used got less each time with ds2 I only used some for about 10 mins while they were trying to put a clip on his head to monitor him. They tried 5 or 6 times but kept failing and it was agony.
All of my labours were fast though, first two about 2 and a half hours and my 3rd was written on my notes as about 1 hour and 10 mins I think, although I was contracting before that but not in established labour.
Hi, I'm 37 weeks with my 4th after a 8 year gap. This has been my best pregnancy yet. I did suffer with extreme tiredness and sickness until 4 months, but since then, I seem to have bloomed and feel really good about myself. I have loads of energy (still need a nap in the afternoons tho), let's hope the birth is not too bad! I think I've had it so good so far the birth is bound to spoil it.... and I'm sure i'll look like death afterwards
