So I am now almost 18 weeks pregnant and there is one thing I have learned that I would like to share with you (even though I have read this before I didn’t believe it)
No two pregnancies are alike.
I was pregnant with a single in 2009 and twins in 2012 and this time it has been so different. With the other two I was happy, energetic and full of life. Yes, I had terrible morning sickness at the beginning but other than that they were great. In fact, being pregnant with the twins was one of the best years of my life.
This time around I am very blah, exhausted all the time and generally blah (oh yeah I said that). The beginning was scary because I had relatively no morning sickness but everything is fine so I guess after twins my body had no trouble handling the hormones.
I guess after twins a single pregnancy is blah (yes, I admit, I was hoping for twins again).
I guess it’s also a change in circumstances. Caring for three kids and working full time is not something I had to do before since last pregnancy I just had ONE child to care for so maybe that’s why I am so tired all the time.
Please don’t get me wrong, we put in a lot of work to get this baby and I am so exited and relived I finally be pregnant after so long but I guess it still surprises me that it’s so different and that I don’t feel how I thought I would.
Anyone expecting after twins or expecting #3, 4 or 5 with any pregnancy experiences to share like mine (or unlike mine)?
