13 Differences Between My First Pregnancy and My Last

1- I'm so much more relaxed.

2- Lack of appetite.

3- I listen to my body more.

4- Low weight gain.

5- I'm more achy earlier on.

6- My hair is almost always in a ponytail this go around.

7- I'm eating more vegetables- I actually crave them.

8- My cravings- with my first it was meat and potatoes (and Big Macs).

9- I'm not as weepy/ sensitive.

10- More enlarged mucus glands- my allergies have been awful and I typically don't even have allergies!

11- This has been the sickest I have EVER been while pregnant. It's been a toughie.

12- I'm so much more tired this go around. Some say it's becasue we have 3 toddlers; I think I'm just getting older and it's harder to bounce back.

13- Which leads me to the last one: I'm getting older and it's tougher to recover and bounce back!

I think it may be the difference b/w being pregnant with boys vs girls! I was MUCH more sick when I was pregnant with Noah vs. Kendall! Kendall was a breeze (other than a few sinus infections)...I gained less weight and never threw up!

I think it has something to do with having three toddler boys:)

Sounds like my pregnancies! All I wanted was salad.

I'll second that. Now that I'm on the third pregnancy, I feel like I could literally sleep all day and all night. I'm not kidding. I cleaned the whole house top to bottom last weekend and went grocery shopping - something I should be able to do. I almost COLLAPSED when I got home! I made Dave bring in all the food and put it all away as I lied helplessly on the couch!
