Well... I am 4 months pregnant with my 2nd little bundle of joy! :) It seems like EVERYTHING is SOOO different with this one then with my first. With my daugher, i was never sick, always happy, my boyfriend got morning sickness (better him then me! LOL) and i was never in any pain... But with this one..... ITS HORRIBLE!!! :( I am always sick, always got some kind of pain, stay dizzy and icky feeling, my boyfriend shows NO symptoms what so ever and i feel like a big fat whale... :( I would really like to hear other ladies stories to make me feel a little better about how im feeling! Was anyone elses 2nd pregnancy COMPLETELY different then their first???

this one has been more intense and everything has started sooner. the sickness and loss of appetite is worse, not sleeping already, and today, at 12 weeks and 2 days i had high blood pressure. i had it checked at 8 weeks and it was normal then. im down 50 lbs from 2 yrs ago and have not gained any weight since my last visit a month ago, but the Dr. (not "my" Dr.) said i must have had high bp all along. i said i didnt not last year at my yearly visit and i didnt just a month ago! im so worried about it, becuase i have a job and my toddler that i take care of all day long, so i cant afford this high bp sooo early. i got it with my daughter, but it was later on. more aches and pains and showing earlier this time around as well

Maybe it's a boy...

I think you were just incredibly lucky the first time around. :P But I have found that my second pregnancy is a bit harder than my first, too. I'm more tired and feel icky even though last time in the 2nd trimester I was energetic and felt like I was bursting with health. I didn't feel like this until a few weeks before I was due, and now I'm tired and grumpy and really big and only 6 months along. :( I think running after a toddler all the time has a lot to do with it, also everybody gets bigger faster with their second pregnancy.

Im glad im not the only one who feels like poopy all the time with my second... Today is the first day since iv been pregnant that i didnt have morning sickness... I woke up in a great mood with no sickness at all! But i usually wake up and it takes me a couple hours to get motivated enough to just take a shower and get ready to go somewhere if i need to go... It sucks! :( I have a DEEEEEP feeling this go around that im having a boy... And i showed earlier also... Everything was earlier! I havent felt a kick or jab yet, but the flutters almost seem to get stronger and stronger every day!

Yep. I swore I was having a boy! I never got sick, my cravings were completely different, I FELT different. But I ended up with another girl. Even her heartbeat was slower that my first ones.
