If you've had multiples in a pregnancy and also had a single

in another pregnancy...how would you compare them? I mean, were you sicker (or should that be more sick?) or more tired when you were pregnant with multiples compared to a single pregnancy? Just curious...Ok, I admit it, I'm curious *because* I'm sicker and more tired than any of my other three pregnancies and I'm wondering what gives, lol.

I had twins my first pregnancy, singles since. I was not sicker or more tired. W/ some of my singles I was very sick. It could just be that you have more on your plate now.

Re: If you've had multiples in a pregnancy and also had a single

My first was a single and this current pregnancy is twins and I am so much more sick and tired! That's what first led me to suspect I was carrying more than one! HTH

PS, mamatoabunch, I'm fairly new and am curious what HBAC and UC in your siggy mean? Couldn't find them in the acronym list. TIA

Single, Single, twins, single. With my twins I wasnt any sicker than a singleton. Infact, I felt better with the twins than I did with the others. The only symptom I noticed differently was thirst. I was excessively thirsty all the time.

Interesting...thank you! I would be scared to death if we had twins, lol. I'm having a hard time with this pregnancy and to add twins to the mix...ummm, lol.

Re: If you've had multiples in a pregnancy and also had a single

I was sick with my DS. This pregnancy(twins) I have not been sick once. I am more tired, but I am also a SAHM and have the option to take a nap everyday. I was working full time when i was preg. with my first. I was suprised I wasnt more sick with these. I wouldn't even know I was preg, let alone with twins if I didn't go to the dr. ha ha. I have had no symptoms, and I have actually lost 10lbs and I am almost 18 weeks. I do notice I am growing faster now than with DS.

This is the exact order I had, and the same exact symptoms (or lack thereof) - even down to the thirst.

Re: If you've had multiples in a pregnancy and also had a single

i am currently pregnant with twins and DEFINITELY felt a lot sicker with this pregnancy than the other 3 (to term) and im always tired...but im pretty sure it has to do with the fact i have two toddlers and a teenager and never get to sleep...sadface.

eta: i will add that my singleton pregnancies were pretty manageable...the girls were bit more nauseous than the boy...but mostly i was ok. this pregnancy, i felt like crap for 12-15wks.

single, twins, single
WAY more sick with the twins than any of the other pregnancies. Although with this pregnancy (3rd pregnancy 4th baby) I am way more tired and feel more pregnant. I think my body just doesnt want to have any more babies.. KWIM?
