When I was pregnant with Tyler, I felt pretty great. Granted, I had morning sickness, and had some food cravings. I needed naps. But, I remember feeling comfortable until I was about a week overdue. I really enjoyed the whole pregnancy experience. My favorite part, both times, has been feeling the baby move - it's the one part of the experience that I know I'll miss.
This time, things have been a little...harder. Morning/all day sickness, heartburn, congestion, sleeping, and contractions (and some other things) have all been more ... difficult or intensified this time around. She feels low, and heavy and I feel like it's harder to get around. I did find out that she is head-down.
My sister-in-law, Carrie, has told me that she had a similar experience (with her first being easier than her second) but that her third pregnancy was not as difficult again. Another Mother of 3 told me the same thing. It has made me curious whether this is more common, or whether I have just found a few moms with similar experiences.
I don't mean to complain - I mean, don't get me wrong, I feel like I have been doing plenty of that lately - but that's not what I'm getting at. But, I wonder whether anyone else has had a similar, or very different experience with their comfort level and the order of their pregnancies. (By the way, we are definitely not having a third).
As Tyler would say, I'm just so curious.
