Early signs of pregnancy second child

Everyone was pretty shocked after hearing that Halle Berry is pregnant with her second child at the age of 46 -- but it sounds like no one was quite as surprised as her. It's funny how early signs and symptoms of pregnancy seem to mimic other ailments, so it's easy to see where women assume they are sick -- not pregnant. Being pregnant with a second child is an entirely different experience than being pregnant with a first.
During my second pregnancy, I realized why a second (and every subsequent) child has fewer pictures and accolades and less attention.
For baby two, I signed up for the weekly emails solely to keep me abreast of how far along I was. It sounds like a lot of people relate to this article, but it might have been nice for the author to include at least a brief acknowledgment that some people pregnant for the second time (at least 20% of them, statistically speaking) do not already have a living baby, and for them, a second pregnancy is a very, very different experience.
This is a little sad…I lost a baby a month ago (my second pregnancy) and I was already just as thrilled for that baby as I was for my first beautiful boy. I have only been pregnant once, but all of the baby #2 comparisons sounds like me for my first lol. Sometimes even modern pregnancy tests can get it wrong, giving false negative or positive results. It wasn't a pregnancy test or missed period that told me I was pregnant with my second baby; it was too early for those things. As I watched the greasy chicken being carved off the rotisserie and the watery hommus being slopped on, I couldn't wait to begin the feast. Jess, a mum of one, says her body also told her she was pregnant before any test provided confirmation.
However, some experts suggest these very early symptoms are probably just "in our head" – or a result of confirmation bias.
Dr Terri Foran, a sexual health physician and lecturer in women's health at the University of New South Wales, explains: "I see quite a number of women who come to me with symptoms and are convinced they are pregnant and are actually not. Foran says that early pregnancy symptoms such as breast tenderness and nausea commonly start about a week after a missed period.
Until implantation and the "hormonal explosion that is early pregnancy begins … you really shouldn't get much in the way of symptoms," she says. However, registered midwife and childbirth educator Pip Wynn Owen says there may be subtle changes that occur between conception and a missed period.

Wynn Owen admits that symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and other lifestyle events can easily be confused for the common early pregnancy symptoms, such as swollen, tender or tingly breasts, tiredness, mood swings, bloating, headaches, constipation, backache, frequent urination, a heightened sense of smell, food aversions, nausea, increased vaginal discharge, dizziness and fainting. Implantation bleeding or cramping is another physical symptom that can be a first sign of pregnancy, generally occurring a few days before a missed period. Kristin says she knew she was pregnant before a missed period for each of her five pregnancies. Another experienced mum, Paivi, says a pregnancy test has always been "just a formality" for her: "The feeling of knowing is really strong.
With my second pregnancy I suspected I was pregnant before the test confirmed it as my bowel motions changed a bit and I felt slightly constipated, as I had felt during my first pregnancy.
16 Sep Dad-to-be Harry Ashby says he is the first man in the UK to take sick leave due to pregnancy illness after being diagnosed with Couvade syndrome. Even though it took me a year to conceive the second time, when I finally did get pregnant, I was so consumed with the kid I already had that I couldn’t focus on my second pregnancy. I remembered somewhere around 24 weeks, when I was already huge and bloated and didn’t feel like showing off, let alone caring about a damn sign that would help document my giant ass for prosperity.
Felt good to read, as I’ve been feeling a bit of guilt over not being obsessed like I was during the last pregnancy! Though I feel I was more prepared and with my second, didn’t bother to read the pregnancy books that scare you half to death, making you worry about all the crazy things that happened 3 times in the history of man, I was just as in love and awe of my second as I was my first.
First pregnancy was in an abusive relationship, nothing was ever celerbrated I was working three jobs coming home and catering to him.
I can relate a little to the author just based on the fact of feeling so stinken tired with no rest for my second pregnancy. Those of you who have been fortunate to have easy pregnancies need to consider yourselves lucky! The line, along with the queasy feeling, grew stronger over the next few days and confirmed, in my mind, that the doner kebab incident was my first sign of pregnancy.
I guess if you are trying and hoping for a pregnancy you may be hypersensitive to any symptoms or feelings experienced before that pregnancy is actually confirmed. It's not unusual for women "who are really in tune with their bodies or who have already had babies" to pick up on a pregnancy during this early period, she says.
It was something Lucy discovered during her third pregnancy, first thinking it was the start of her period.

While she has had five confirmed pregnancies, Paivi says, "There is another one that I knew about from the word go. Like her, I was pretty dumbfounded when I found out that the abdominal pain I was experiencing was due to the fact that I was pregnant. Every milestone, feeling or picture that I celebrated the first time kind of got ignored the second time around.
Then second one was more complicated and ended up being an emergency c-section and spent nearly a month in the nicu .
I definitely had less energy and time to myself with my second pregnancy already having a child to care for, was def less of a “princess” lol that was spot on! I felt pregnant, the incident more reminiscent of the morning sickness that had been my companion through my first pregnancy. Of course I love my second child as much as my older one, but pretty much everything about my second pregnancy was, in a way, less than my first. If baby two wants to see what I looked like while I was pregnant with him, he can look at pictures of me with his brother. But like others have said even with my 3rd child , they all have their own unique birthing story and i would not change any of it for any reason. My mom smoked like a chimney and drank 12 cups of coffee a day while carrying my brother and I, and her argument is that we turned out fine.
It took so long for me to get pregnant and I had to take conceiveeasy to finally do it that we were very excited the whole time we were expecting. I knew pretty much right off the bat with the first and didn’t even know until 17 weeks this time (just a little earlier than we planned). I once started crying at a restaurant because I was worried about the lotion I had used earlier that morning.
