I'm finding I am more hormonal this pregnancy as opposed to the pregnancy with my daughter. Every symptom is amplified this time around. I feel crankier this time around too and I am far more outspoken.



Those who have had one of each, do you find that you handle the pregnancies any differently? Just curious.

With my daughter I had every symptom in the book. I was sick the entire 9 months and MISERABLE. With my son I felt great, barely had any morning sickness or heartburn, but I was super emotional.

Honestly, I was way more miserable with my girls than I was with my boy. Growing girls whooped my butt, lol. Might've just been a coincidence though.

I don't know what I'm having yet, but everything is opposite than it was with DD.
I'm more tired (but I have more to worry about), I'm more irritable, I had morning sickness, everything hurts always.
I find out next month, so we'll see.

Everything she stated. I also had an appetite that was never satisfied with DS, this time I have to force myself to eat just normal amounts of food.

Aside from the HG with my daughter it was pretty breezy. I could cook and clean after the sickness lessened a bit. Mine could also have to do with age I guess. I turn 30 next month and I was 25 when I had my daughter.

My first three were exactly the same pretty much...and they were girl girl boy.....my next 3 were completely different than my first three but all similar to each other...and they were boy girl girl. My last pregnancy was completely different than ANY of my previous 6 and that was a boy.

I can say, yes. Only because with my daughter I had a rougher pregnancy. I ended up with a placental abruption. I'm not saying her being a girl had anything to do with it, but personally, it was a harder pregnancy. I will say, her pregnancy I was nauseous (never sick), but more nauseous with her and I never was with my son.

Well this is my first pregnancy, and im having a boy. I've been miserable this whole time. Morning sickness everyday severe heartburn always tired. And super cranky. I hope that if i ever manage to get pregnant again and its a girl that it isnt worse then having this one, I can't even fathom.

The pregnancy with my son wasn't significantly different than those with my girls.. however, he was much bigger, so I was much more uncomfortable.

I don't cry but I do find that its so easy for me to fly off the handle. I actually have to stop and inhale deeply.

With my son my pregnancy was a breeze. No real symptoms, no complications (until delivery) etc. Unless I was hungry, then I was a serious b***h.



This pregnancy (a girl) I had nausea until 16 weeks (still have it occasionally), I lose my temper MUCH faster, I'm more tired, my sex drive is almost nonexistent, um I have an aversion to pork chops now. Lol. That's all I can think of.

I was 24 with Heathen. I'll be 2 months shy of 30 with this one.
I'm sure age does have something to do with it as well. Not like you can stop aging.

My pregnancies were different, yes. My boy I was ALWAYS nauseated but only threw up once. However my nausea was easily controlled with sea bands and ginger spice. I felt like I had more energy with him though. My second was a girl and I was definitely more nauseated with her and had to be medicated. I was always tired and I had a lot of headaches. With my third which was also a girl I was SO sick. I had hyperemesis and was heavily medicated which just barely helped. I was so tired, I couldn't function half the time. I had such horrible heart burn and back pain and the WORST braxton hicks contractions ever that hurt just like true labor.



This time around I'm only 13 weeks. But I have noticed a difference in this pregnancy as well. It reminds me a lot of my boy pregnancy but somedays when the morning sickness gets REALLY bad, I start to suspect a girl again because the only time my morning sickness has ever been really bad was with my girl pregnancies. So I guess we shall see.
