Different for every person for every pregnancy. I personally had terrible morning sickness in the first trimester both times but was very energetic and joyful with my first the rest of the time. With the triplets I was more tired and mellow. On the spiritual side of things I was more aware of things and was always able to accurately predict the weather, for the next day, the next week, the next month. I found most of my senses heightened including the physical ones.

It was astounding. I was more aware of everything around me. Standing in the rain, I could feel the weight of each individual drop on my skin, the cool grass was more refreshing than usual and of course food taste better than ever before. The little flutter in your abdomen was incredible. It is a cherished and beautiful time. I did not really have any symptoms, no morning sickness, restlessness, back pain or cravings. I started showing around my 7th month, so my abdomen expanding took some getting use to. I just took the 9 months to prepare for my new stage in life.

This is my first baby so i'm not sure how labour feels lol but i can tell you now i'm not exactly looking forward to it, just looking forward to what comes after ;)

I've been getting back pain, pelvic pain... i got morning sickness in the first trimester, all day i was sick as a dog but i never spewed lol. I can smell everything and intense smells make me feel nausious... well not so much now. I have to be careful when i sneeze or cough because it hurts the ligaments sometimes in my abdomen hehe. I have also been getting mood swings =/ Im not usually a moody person so thats probably the hardest thing to deal with, but luckily i have one of the most beautiful men in the world as my fiance and he is so patient with me and loves me all the more =)

Labor wasn't all that bad for me with the first one. It was an induced labor that lasted a very long time but the pain was easy enough to deal with, the delivery, on the other hand, was extremely painful. The second time around I had a scheduled c-section as my son was breech and most triplet births are by c-section. I would much rather deliver a baby naturally than by c-section though. The day or so of labor and the delivery is much easier than the painful weeks of healing from a c-section.

I second you there! I remember eating dinner out, and I would get aggravated just with the way people in restaurants would chew their food. Ha ha.

Labor for me was a piece of cake. It lasted 22 minutes and the pain was not too bad, I had more of a back labor. Although the 45 minute drive through the mountains, to the hospital was hellish....I think even more so for my husband.

Hi. Just FYI guys, I moved this part of the original thread which was in the "Question and Answers" forum, to here in the "Everyone" forum, since this part relates to pregnancy and childbirth.

That way Fluffy's original question regarding Commitment spells in the "Questions and Answers" forum stays on topic, and she could continue to get responses to the question she originally posted.

Thanks.
