Has anyone else noticed that their second pregnancy flew by a million times faster than their first? I feel like I should have way more than 11 weeks left to prepare for this baby.... Its crazy.

I think it's going fast for me, because I'm not AS focused on it. I've been there done that, so I'm not thinking about it constantly. ha ha

The second dragged on forever for me because I found out soooo much earlier that I was pregnant.
The third went by much faster then the second though.

With DS I could tell you at any given point in the week what day I was on, how many days I had left, how each of those equated into trimester, months, etc. It felt like I was pregnant for 3 years - but I was hyper focused on the pregnancy to the point I didn't have much outside life.

This one I swear it was yesterday I was calling DH from work with the news that I'd taken a test over lunch. Now I've got like 10 weeks and I'm bug eyed like "HOW THE HELL!?" Where did the time go?
