You know by now that everyone's pregnancy experience is different. But you may not be aware that even your own subsequent pregnancies can be completely different than your first. The amount of weight you gain, the pregnancy symptoms you experience, and the way you carry will vary with each baby. But those aren't the only ways pregnancy is different the second time. In fact, there may be some differences that you never would have thought of before.
One major difference is that you may be a little more confident. Now that you've joined the mommy club, you've already pulled back the curtain and uncovered a lot of the mysteries of being pregnant. You'll spend a lot less time Googling during your second pregnancy, because you know what baby's kicks feel like, why your boobs are tender, and why your back aches.
Unfortunately, you won't be spending as much time making scrapbooks, snapping pregnancy photos and getting pampered. Because you've been through all of this pregnancy stuff before, you now have another little person who needs your attention and who could care less about your hemorrhoids.
If you can manage to find a minute for yourself, check out some of the things experts say will make your second pregnancy different from your first. And if you have a third pregnancy, you can guarantee that one will be completely different as well.
