A first pregnancy is a magical experience, and nothing can quite match the ecstasy when the pregnancy test kits reads ‘positive’. The anticipation, exhilaration and expectation from the first pregnancy is matchless. Though pregnancy is beautiful no matter how many times you feel those fluttering kicks, when you are pregnant for the second or third time, you know the journey and will be more at ease. You will not be jumping around the house every time there is a twitch in the belly. You are more stable in your approach, more at peace with the changes and more in control of your pregnancy. We would say, that the second time you are pregnant things are plainly different, not
‘bad’ but plainly different.
We have summed up some of the differences, do share your experiences and comment if there is something we have missed.
We can already sense the second time mommies smiling and nodding, while the ones who are planning a second baby are wondering “Is that so?” Add in what we missed! A mother’s love for her children is always the same, no matter how many kids she has!
