Is anyone else having more trouble taking care of yourself with the second (or subsequent) pregnancy? With the first pregnancy, all the focus is on the mommy, and it's all about eating right and exericse and lots of rest. But with the subsequent pregnancies, you still have a child who needs your attention and you don't have time for all the pampering. Plus, with my first pregnancy, I was working part-time, only 5 hours a day, and now I am working full-time and my job is much more stressful. I am only 9 weeks along, but I'm worried that if I don't figure out how to take better care of myself, it's going to start affecting the health of my new baby.
