    I'm positive this time that I am pregnant! Last month I was either 5 days late or miscarried. The doctor really couldn't tell me. I took 2 tests last monday and they were both positive. I go to the doctor tomorrow to get all of the specifics and have them test me. At that point I'll be almost 2 weeks late. Which means about 4 or 5 weeks pregnant. I wanted to ask though, for those of you who have been pregnant more than once, did you notice that the symptoms happened sooner with the second one? I just feel like they are this time. Maybe it's just me though:confused: TIA!

    YEAH!!! Congrats!!!!

    Yes, my 2nd pregnancy I had symptoms much more quickly. I think it was because I knew what to expect. The fatigue hit me first and then other physical symptoms became sore.

    Thanks :) I have been tired, chest is sore, feeling sick a little bit, and grumpy. Did you start showing sooner? I haven't been the best about my weight lately so I feel like I already look pregnant :( I go tomorrow to find out for sure. But since I'm almost 2 weeks late and with all the other symptoms, it's kind of a duh thing at this point I think.

    I did show much quicker for my 2nd and 3rd children. I was also very sick much earlier. I thought I had a stomach virus when I was pregnant with the 3rd. (He was a surprise because Baby # 1 was only 3 1/2 years old and Baby #2 was less than a year old.) When the "stomach virus" went into the 2nd week, my husband suggested that maybe I was pregnant.

    With my first it took me along time to know and a long time to show. In fact i really didnt show until I was in the 9th month. BUT with 2nd I swear i know the exact moment I got pregnant. He was also my biggest so maybe he was the biggest egg or something because I felt like I knew it from conception. With my 3rd I was sick from about 4 weeks until I had him. With my 4th not a clue until the doctor told me. I was almost 4 months pregnant. Everyone was quite different for me.
