The “Real” Difference Between First and Second Pregnancy


#6. Showers

pregnantbump1st Pregnancy: You enjoy the baby shower laid on by family/friends/work and bask in the attention.

2nd Pregnancy: You are lucky if you have time to take a shower!

#7. Music

1st Pregnancy: You play Mozart and Beethoven to your bump to expand their mind in the womb.


2nd Pregnancy: The bump gets to listen to the nursery songs CDs that your older child loves over and over and over.

1st Pregnancy: You faithfully rub in cream to help avoid stretch marks.

2nd Pregnancy: You cover up the stretch marks with aforementioned yoga pants.

#9. Nesting

2nd Pregnancy: Baby number 2 lives in your room as you didn’t have time to decorate their nursery.

#10. Announcements

2nd Pregnancy: You announce the arrival on facebook while in the labour suite.
