Differences in 2nd Pregnancy... Please help

Cyndi - posted on 06/14/2009 ( 5 moms have responded )




Hello my name is Cyndi and I was wondering if there are some mommys out there that can tell me what you experienced the same or different during your second pregnancy. The reason is I think I might be pregnant I missed my monthly and my boobs are very tender and I swear they have grown a little. I also feel a strange streched feeling in my lower stomach. It feels like a constant cramp like it's stretching or something, and I'm not sure if it's normal to feel it this soon? I also have mini headaches here and there. So please feel free to comment. Thank you!

My two pregnancies were totally different and I had two lovely boys!! I carried different and felt totally different. Weird!

hopefully this is a happy thing. the best thing to do is either take a test or go and see your doctor. I have read that in your first pregnancy you don't know all the little aches and stretches and sometimes you ignore them as signs of something else (like period uncomfortableness) but with following pregnancies you and your body know the signs and feelings better and then you can recognise them for what they are (your body changing to make way for a baby).

I hope this helps and good luck.

I've got three kids. The first one I felt like you do and I had a girl, the second pregnancy, I felt good,but different from the first and it was a boy, my third, I had the breast tenderness again...and it was another girl! Good luck this time around! :)

hi cyndi,,

first of all congrats i hope it goes well for you i also have just found out that im pregnant with my second im so scared arrhhh my little one is only one so they will be close together. i would have no idea on your question but i must say i have been feel similar things. i think and don't quote me on this cuz i don't know but your body knows what to do the second time round so it is more prepared and things kick in a lot faster. well i hope all goes well and let us know
