How different (or similar?) have each of your pregnancies been? How is this one different so far?
Connor was SO easy! I had zero m/s, barely any symptoms throughout the pregnancy. The only ones that were prevalent were sore boobs in the beginning, and horrible heartburn later on (and he sure came out with a full head of hair! )
So far with this one, I'm feeling nauseous on and off all day, every day!! It sucks! My boobs are a little bit sore, but not nearly as much as I remember with Connor. With him, I had to wear a sports bra to sleep because they hurt so bad! Now they only seem to hurt when I touch them ha ha.
With Isaac my biggest symptoms in the beginning were very strange dreams, bad sciatica and sore boobs. With Gabe I had absolutely no sore boobs, still very strange dreams, fatigue and only a touch of M/S. So far with this little one I've had strange dreams, sore boobs and fatigue, no M/S yet. I sure hope it stays that way, I didn't like the little bit of M/S I had with Gabe! I'm a big baby when it comes to nausea.

With Lily: I had sore boobs at the beginning. Really that was my only indication that I should probably test since I wasn't good about keeping up with when AF was due. I was constantly hungry- craved pizza, burritos, and chocolate like nobody's business. Half way through the pregnancy I had terrible heartburn. I was always munching on Tums. By the last 2 months, the swelling in my hands and feet were terrible. I couldn't wear my wedding ring or dress shoes to work. Did I stop eating pizza, burritos, and chocolate? Of course not.
With Abri- no sore boobs. I felt miserable all day queasiness starting at 7 weeks that lasted until 19 weeks. I was on Zofran for the nausea which caused awful constipation. I was never hungry, even after the nausea passed. No cravings, no heartburn, no swelling.
So far with this one: no sore boobs, a little nausea so far but I can still function. I don't necessarily have cravings yet, but have preferences for more savory foods than sweets (I have a major sweet tooth normally).
With the twins--everything was horrible, so I can't really compare.. lol
With DS, I was a lot sicker.. my nose was a lot worse. I didn't really have cravings, just aversions.
This time I am doing a bit better with the nausea and my nose. My boobs are much more sore this time, and I am cravings sweets and fruit juice like a mad man. I am having insomnia. And hot all the time!!

With Eliza I remember being sick starting at 7 weeks, but it passed once I brushed my teeth. My boobs were so swollen and sore they were shiny, and I felt like I'd been hit by a truck, I was so tired. My skin and hair got really oily. I didn't really gain much weight, especially not right away, but I did swell pretty badly at the end.
This time I had absolutely no symptoms until 5 weeks, then m/s hit like a ton of bricks. It's constant and much more intense. I did notice it let up a little bit in the last couple days and now I mostly feel icky in the evenings. I'm hoping it goes away at 13 weeks like last time. My skin and hair are a mess and I already have killer heartburn. My boobs aren't quite as sore but they're already all stretched out from nursing and I didn't wean all that long ago so that doesn't surprise me. I've also already gained at least 5 lbs because I wasn't used to eating wheat and when I got sick I started grains again because they're bland and palatable. I feel awful and I'm really looking forward to wanting healthy food again.

Im having like the exact same pregnancy, very mild just some gassiness, hunger, and frequent urination. Im a little crampier but that might just be 2nd baby in general. Also I seem to have retained a little of my sex drive which I ddint with Drake and Im not bleeding like I did with Drake thank goodness. Other than that I have to say I have it easy compared to most and Im thankful and I know I dont really earn the right to complain at all
They've all been pretty similar, but with my first I was so bloated everywhere I had to get my ring cut off my finger. I also had to see a physical therapist for my back & dh was in Iraq so I was miserable with worry. I had bad Braxton hicks too. The second two weren't that bad, just more exhausted & my boobs were more sore early on. This one is shaping to be like the others.
I was just thinking about this the other night. It's been 9.5 years since my daughter was born, and 11 years since my son, so it's a little hard to remember. But I do know my fatigue is more than anything I ever remember! I don't know if it's age, if it's having older kids and a demanding career, but oh man, I am TIRED! Always!
