Third Pregnancy

A third pregnancy is easier in some ways than previous pregnancies. After all, you know what to expect, you’ve already read all the books, and you aren’t nearly as nervous as you were before. You don’t get as scared at each new symptoms and you can enjoy your pregnancy more.

However, a third pregnancy is still a unique pregnancy. Few women have multiple pregnancies that are identical. Expect your body to look pregnant faster, and you may feel completely different. If you never had heartburn with previous pregnancies, you might have it with the third pregnancy. One of the challenges with a third pregnancy is that you may still have little ones at home. When you were pregnant with your first, it was much easier to catch a few minutes of quiet time or a quick nap. With a third pregnancy, you may have to be intentional about planning time every day to get the rest your changing body needs.
