How is your third pregnancy going?


I'm currently 15 weeks with my third baby and boy am I feeling it this time around! I don't know if it's because I'm older now than the first time (28-29 first time, 31-32 second time and I'm now 34 - an old fart) or because with two already I have no time to rest, but I just feel constantly exhausted and irritated. I feel like all my aches and pains are magnified, I have lower back pain for the first time in a pregnancy and picking up my two year old hurts. I also have had my worst morning sickness, am experiencing my worst sleep this far along (I never had any sleep problems with being uncomfortable until at least 25 weeks the last two times) and I'm just thoroughly over being pregnant and I'm only 15 weeks!

If you're on your third pregnancy, how are you feeling? I'm just not enjoying this, whilst at the same time being mindful that I have nothing to complain about really and should just shut my pie hole.

ETA: Oops, I meant to post this in second tri, but, hey, still relevant!

Third babies are tough!! I'm always jealous of my former self during pregnancy #1, when I could get home from work and laze around vs. make dinner, do nighttime routines etc... let alone run errands with two kids and a bump in tow! You'll get your second tri reprieve soon!

Pregnancy with DS3 was easy. This last pregnancy is physically draining and hard! Pretty sure that's a sign that there will be no more babies for me (already decided unless my cousin takes my offer of surrogacy).

This has been my best pregnancy out of the three. My second was the most difficult. I've loved being pregnant this time, I almost don't want it to end!

I'm finding this pregnancy much harder! Tired all the time, aching and moody! It's been an easy pregnancy really so nothing really to complain about I guess lol. I put it down to being slightly older-youngest is nearly 4 and I'm 32', and being constantly o. The go from the moment you get up x

I am utterly exhausted. My first child is 4 1/2, my second child is 3, and I am 39 years old, and a full-time special education teacher. I am seriously struggling with my low energy levels.

My 3rd pregnancy was an absolute breeze. I'm pregnant with my 7th and I'm absolutely miserable. I have bad spd, polyhydramnios and a big baby. I am completely house bound and in constant pain. Saying that, I hope that the rest of your pregnancy is easy for you.

This time I decided it would be my fast pregnancy so I will enjoy it this time, savour the moment, and not rush it etc etc but to tell you the truth I'm not enjoying this pregnancy so much. I feel so guilty saying that. I'm 32 now and my DS is 7 and my DD is 5 so it's been a while since my last pregnancies but this time like you my morning sickness was worse, followed my horrific hayfever, followed by general aches and pains and not being able to get comfortable at night. I'm 33 weeks now and I'm literally counting down the days. I normally go overdue too so I'm looking into acupuncture etc. I do love feel him/her move inside but I can't wait to meet my baby and have him in my arms instead. Xxx
