My pregnancy disease was called pemphigoid gestatinous. It affects 1 in 50,000 pregnancies. It was very painful, I had awful blisters and a horrible burning rash all over my belly. Everytime my baby moved I'd scream cuz it hurt so bad. And yeah my boobs hurt so much, it hurt to walk. And after I had my daughter my milk wouldn't come In and drop to release so I had severely swollen and tender breasts. It was hard for me to breathe. But I was 90 lbs when I got pregnant with my first, and she was only a 7 lb 4 oz baby, but she pushed my ribs out and almost broke my very bottom rib on both sides. I'm only 4'11. An I was 95 lbs when I got pregnant withy second, but with the pregnancy disease the only way to treat it was to be on steroids, and it helped contain the rash and make it bearable, but it also made my second daughter get bigger and stronger in case she came early, which was common with the disease. But at 37 weeks they were going to induce and she came at 36 weeks and she was an 8 lb & 1/4 oz baby. Way too big for me to be having, almost broke my pelvic bone and my pelvic bone did cut her head. But they didn't think she was as big as she was, they figured about six pounds because I also had an excessive amount of amniotic fluid but she surprise everyone. The baby and all the amniotic fluid not only made it hard to breathe, it put pressure on all my organs in the vicinity. I ended up in the emergency room one night because my bowels had so much pressure on them, I had built up gas and it felt like contraction pain. A little tmi here but it also constricted my bowels and I never hardly went to the bathroom except to pee.



And yes, my oldest was and still is very clingy, but she's always been an independent child, even as a newborn but she was in nicu for the first 2 weeks of her life so she wasn't able to be held. But she is very protective of her baby sister and has been since she could understand that mommy was pregnant. The girls play together now and are each others best friends.

But like I said before, if u have any concerns, talk to ur dr. That's why u are paying them. My dr kept trying to pass my disease off as a normal pregnancy rash, and I had them send me to a dermatologist who actually used me and my medical case to show other drs and learn more about the disease. He's the one who finally diagnosed me correctly and get me some relief.

But if u have any questions, I'd be glad to answer, just from the experience of being a stay at home mom of two that are a year and a half apart.

Good luck hun!

Yes. My oldest daughter was 8 months when I got pregnant with my second. And the second pregnancy was way more painful than the first. Your body never h

Got a chance to heal properly and all the way before it was preparing for another one. At least this is what my doctors all said to me. I also had a severe pregnancy disease with the second one. Sorry you are having to go through all this pain, but it is normal. And if you are worried, talk to your dr. Congrats on both babies though!
