The second your first baby is born, you think "I'm never doing this again." You know the pain. You know the trauma. You're so happy to not be pregnant anymore. But then sex feels all good and you like your partner again and you get a lil lazy with the birth control and BAM! You're pregnant again.
The second pregnancy will be completely different than the first. Everyone tells you this. This is the reverse of the shit no one tells you. It's the shit everyone tells you but you don't believe a single one of them. It was so different, I was shocked to find that this baby was also a boy. I was completely convinced that since I had so much more energy and felt so much better, it must be a girl. Nope. The second pregnancy is just different.
So is the second birth. Totally different. I'm telling you. But you probably won't believe me. Or you'll be the exception and be all, "My pregnancies were totally the same."
