This is my second oregnancy and I feel way more nauseous! Mind you, it is about 9 years later though. Every pregnancy can be different.

Good luck to you! Sounds like there is a strong possibility that it could be true! 🙂

Every pregnancy is different in some way or another.  And also different for each and every woman, so hard to make a call on your symptoms.

BUT as someone over 50, who’s baby making years are drawing to a close… let me give you this piece of advice…

Even tho you may THINK you’ll want another baby right away (and I get that)… and I’m sure you and your Hubby will be happy if that is what turns out.

You have to trust me that the feelings of wanting a baby now, are what I refer to as the “baby after-glow”

When things aren’t too hectic… and you are just soo happy to have this precious little one as part of your family.

In reality, you’ll more than likely think / wish things a lot differently when you are chasing down a very active toddler 1 year old, and getting no reprise from a newborn baby that REFUSES to sleep thru the night.

Before reliable Birth Control, this was the reality for many women… such as my Mother’s Generation in the 1950s, and I can tell you it WAS EXHAUSTING !!

One of the benefits of reliable BC is being able to pace your babies, and yourself… just because you can get pregnant, isn’t always a good idea for your health or sanity !!

PS… If you are pregnant, you’ll want to start saving now for the reality of having two small children soo close together.  Financially you’ll be strapped for the next 20+ years, as they will not be able to share things whatsoever… (ie bigger stroller, 2 car seats, double-the-cost of Daycare, and eventually 2 university educations at the same time).  Babies / Children close together can be quite OVERWHELMING !!

When I got pregnant with DS, I felt nauseous and that’s when I tested.  The early days of my second pregnancy felt pretty similar to my first pregnancy.  Are you going to test soon?

Fwiw, I think it was around 8-10 weeks after having my first that the adrenaline really started to fade.  Suddenly, those first couple months of sleepless nights and being so active caught up with me and I started feeling pretty tired and run down.  I was able to catch up on my sleep, though, and by 4 months I started to feel a lot better.  So you might just be catching up with the exhaustion of the newborn time period.  Awesome that your daughter is already sleeping throuhg the night, though; I’m sure that helps!
