I went through alot of stress with the first one because at the time that I became pregnant, I was teaching 5th graders and a State Test was to be administered so I felt like I was under soooo much stress. Then, during the summer, my husband and I decided to open a new business and so that added more stress. Now, with this pergnancy, my only stress is taking care of my first baby, which, to me, the stress does not compare to the kind that I had with the first pregnancy. I feel much more relaxed now. I eat better foods now, drink lots of water, and drink a soda about once every 2 weeks sometimes I just take a sip of my husbands soda to stop the craving. My first pregnancy, I ate everything and anything that I craved to the point where I would stuff myself! And those are only some things I changed.
Did you do anything different with each pregnancy. That is, did you take precautions with the second one given that you had experienced PE with the first one? Did you make any changes to your lifestyle (eating, environment, etc...)? If so, what did you do?
Take care and congratulations on your pregnancy!
