Second pregnancy: becoming a mother… again!

It is well known that every pregnancy and every birth is a separate one, but there are actually differences between the first and the following pregnancies

You are already a mother and are expecting another baby and, although you have already had this experience, you wonder if this pregnancy will be the same as the first or totally different. It is well known that every pregnancy and every birth is a separate one, but there are actually differences between the first and the following pregnancies.

First of all, we must bear in mind that the body has already undergone the changes linked to a pregnancy, so it will react differently to the following ones: it will be ready, mindful of the transformations already experienced.

In fact, the most visible aspect will be the volume of the belly, which will be much more pronounced during the second gestation, as the abdominal muscles are more relaxed and adapt more quickly to the growth of the uterus than the first time.

On the same physical level, many gynaecologists say that normally a second pregnancy lasts less than the first and that the birth takes place in a simpler and faster way: the contractions are more effective and the woman’s body is much more elastic than the first time, facilitating the passage of the baby. In addition, the mother already knows what to expect from childbirth, so she is more serene and relaxed.

On the hormonal and psychological level, however, the mood swings will be less pronounced; the worries of the mother-of-two will be directed more to the reaction of the first-born than to the motherhood itself; doubts and anxieties will be greatly alleviated, precisely because she has already debuted as a mother.

In essence, the experiences between one pregnancy and another are very different, both physically and emotionally, but the excitement with which you expect and prepare for the arrival of another baby remains unchanged.
