After I spoke to my mom yesterday I realized her pregnancies sounded a lot like mine symptom wise. My sister also had similar symptoms with two of her three pregnancies.
While I understand this will be purely anecdotal, I’m still curious to see if other women also had or are having similar pregnancies to their mothers.

Me too! I have very similar symptoms that my mother had. My grandmother had NO symptoms. My mom had (and I have) mild symptom such as fatigue, cravings, & very slight nipple sensitivity.

The only things we had in common were that we couldn’t brush our teeth without getting sick and that she had eclampsia at the end and I had to be induced a few days before my due date because I was on the border of pre-e. She had me 4 weeks early.

@Jilliebean1: so far, I’m finding that to be true, but it’s still early on. My mom said she felt queasy at times but never threw up and usually felt better after eating. And she was tired. She says as her pregnancy went on she felt great and loved being pregnant. Hopefully that’s passed on to me too! She did say she was in maternity pants by 12 weeks though, which seems so soon!

I am really hoping it is true. She had very little morning sickness, I’ve had a bit more than her already, but have been feeling a bit better for the last 5 days (im about 8 weeks 5 days)and I’m hoping she is right, that it would ease up quickly. She said she had easy pregnancies and felt great through most of it, so fingers crossed my pregnancies go like my mom’s!

My pregnancy has been identical to my mother’s at this point. No morning sickness in the beginning except for a little nausea, but now that I’m nearing the 3rd trimester I’ve randomly gotten severe bouts of nausea (which happened to her too!). Even earlier in my pregnancy she made a comment that I am carrying very similarly to her.
She had large babies (I was the smallest weighing in at 9 1/2 lbs) and I’m curious to see if this holds true for me since the rest of my pregnancy seems to be an exact replica of hers.

Mine was the exact opp of my mother’s! I ballooned up with water and was extremely sick the whole time. She gained 10 lbs, never had a second of feeling unwell, and was out skiing at 9 months pregnant. I don’t know whose pregnancy I got, but it was a total bummer!

Mine was really similar to what my mother experienced – but my sister’s have been really different. So, I’d say it is a predictor, but a somewhat weak one.

This is probably an old wive’s tale, but I hear the symptoms skip a generation, so we should be having similar pregnancies to our grandmothers…who knows?

@Jilliebean1: well my mom had six kids and pregnancies were completely different so yeah I’m sure when I get pregnant I might have a pregnancy that is a bit like one of her six different ones! Lol

I hope not!!!! She had morning sickness throughout the ENTIRE pregnancy and threw up every. single. day. Hearing her talk about it makes me never want to get pregnant lol. The only thing I can do is pretend that my pregnancy will be the opposite of hers… otherwise I won’t go through with it. I will live happily in denial 🙂

@Jilliebean1: Yep both myself and my mom had simllar pregnancies. She had no morning sickness with either myself nor my brother. I did not have any morning sickness with my son.
I was born a month early and my son was born 7 weeks early….

My pregnancy was completely opposite of my mother’s…I was also carrying twins instead of a singleton though as well. As far as symptoms the only thing I had in common with her is that I was exhausted all the time.

Mine’s so far sounding very simiar – lots of mid level nausea at the beginning (like being constantly car sick) but no vomitting. Mum had complications at the end and I was 4 weeks early – so we’ll see about that! Also Mum told me that all the women on her side (her, my aunt, my Grandmother, my Great Aunt) have never miscarried, which I found very interesting.

Oh my gosh I hope so!! My mom had no problem getting pregnant (even at 41!), gained 17 lbs with each of her 3 kids, had no morning sickeness, and quick easy labor. I would be so lucky if it is hereditary!!
