Were you a precious first-time mum? How did the second pregnancy differ? Here are 10 things that are the “real” difference between first and second pregnancy:

#1. Reading books

Difference Between First and Second Pregnancy1st Pregnancy: You read every pregnancy book you can lay your hands on.

2nd Pregnancy: You read zero pregnancy books as you don’t have time to read.

#2. Keeping track

1st Pregnancy: You keep track down to the day of where you are in your pregnancy and take baby bump photos every day.

2nd Pregnancy: You keep track down to the hour of your due date: “Get me into the labour suite”.

#3. Showing

1st Pregnancy: You delight in your expanding tummy and take pride in your waistline.

2nd Pregnancy: “Oh no I’m starting to show and I’m only 2 weeks pregnant”.

2nd Pregnancy: “Make mine a tuna sandwich and double espresso”.

#5. Clothes

1st Pregnancy: You make a concerted effort with maternity clothes buying cute outfits and wearing heels.

2nd Pregnancy: You live in yoga pants and your slip on shoes. (or you are still wearing last time’s maternity trousers as they are just so darned comfy).
