If you have 2+ children, were your pregnancies all different, or quite similar?
Did pregnancy live up to your expectations, or was it worse/better than you imagined it'd be?
Do you plan on getting pregnant again? Anyone actively TTC?

My pregnancies with the girls were both similar overall, but the first trimester with Emersyn was a LOT harder than with Gaby - the fatigue knocked me around really bad, as did the morning sickness... I also had a lot of scares with Emersyn. But in general, the pregnancies were both fairly smooth sailing, and I had a lot of the same symptoms, cravings etc etc...

Pregnancy lived up to my expectations, but I was a lot more mentally frazzled than I thought I'd be

I don't plan on getting pregnant again, but I do like the idea of fostering or adopting in the future - or being a Step-Mama...

So far, things are similar, but the m/s seems more manageable and I'm hoping it doesn't last as long (25 weeks with Jenny). I'm only 8 1/2 weeks, though, so who knows?

I expected the morning sickness, but not for as long as I had it... the biggest surprise was that my best trimester was my THIRD, not the second like everyone said.

Obviously, I'm pregnant again. I would like to have at least one more after this, but we'll see. I'm with you on the fostering thing, but probably not until all of my kids are in elementary school .

It was worse than I expected towards the end of the pregnancy. I didnt expect to get THAT uncomfortable and grumpy and in pain. I also didnt expect to fall so in love with him before I even met him.

I definitely want another but til Nicholas is 2 or 3

Thank you jaidynsmum for my siggy!

My two pregnancies were pretty similar. I was more tired the second time around, but that's to be expected I'd say, since I was also chasing a toddler.

Pregnancy was pretty much what I expected. I actually like being pregnant (most of the time).

I am done.
