Different Symptoms

I know it's still way early but...

I had all-day sickness with Kaylin from 5 weeks until the 2nd trimester. I am 6 weeks now and the only time I feel queasy is if I don't eat in the morning. Like this morning, I got up at 730 and was super hungry. Ate and felt just fine. Then the rest of the day, I don't feel like eating all day. Now...I'm NOT complaining b/c it was horrible with Kaylin. Really the only symptoms I have (again not complaining!) is major bloat, mild heartburn all day, and a ridiculous lower back pain.

Did any of you with multiple pregnancies, have m/s with one and not the other? Does it depend on the gender (if you have different genders!)?

Thank God I have my first appointment next week, it'll make me feel a tad better if they can confirm it as well.

I think having different genders definitely makes for a different pregnancy. My pregnancy with Shaylynn was much more difficult and I felt much worse. With Mason I was pretty lucky and didn't have many symptoms.

I didn't really have "morning sickness" with either, I never threw up either time. But with Mason I immediately had a bigger appetite and could eat and eat, and with Shaylynn the first trimester nothing sounded good to eat, and I felt sick some, but never actually got sick.

Maybe Kaylin will have a baby brother! I never had m/s with Ev, lots of heartburn though. Good luck at your appt. this week!

Not sure - I had the exact same pregnancy 3x, both girls and boys. No morning sickness (never vomited but felt mildly queasy for a few weeks in the first tri) and lots of heartburn.

Can't wait to find out what you're having though! Wink

Two boys here and although there were some similarities to my pregnancies they were also quite different.

What day is your appt? Will you find out this pregnancy what you are having? I can't wait to hear!

Wednesday afternoon! I think it's just the routine first appointment, not even seeing my OB. I've been toying with the idea of not finding out but Wes wants to know. So we'll see! I am going to try for a VBAC as the ban was just lifted in our area. I would really like one surprise, and I think keeping the gender a surprise would be awesome!!

I found out with our first, but the next two were surprises, and I LOVED it and was so glad they were surprises!!! See if you can talk DH into it!!! Wink

My symptoms were different-- I was really really sick with my first two girls, not really sick at all with Miles and HUNGRY, and then only sort of sick with Lexi.

I think that the sex can affect your symptoms-- but I also know that even with the same sex I had different pregnancies. GOOD LUCK!

I'm so excited for you!

My pregnancies were totally different. I was sick with Sierra like clockwork for 5 weeks, every morning, lots of foods I normally could eat totally turned me off. Like steak Sad That sucked.

With Cooper I wasn't sick at all, but did have some bleeding early on, whch I never had with Sierra, and with him I could eat whatever I wanted.

Different sexes, different fathers, my age?? Who knows what was the factor.
