Little People, Big World fans are over the moon that Tori Roloff is pregnant with baby #2.

Fans, so accustomed to following every detail of the family’s lives, asked Tori how this pregnancy compares to her last.

The answer? In terms of symptoms, it’s not going so well, actually.

Tori Roloff responded to a fan’s question on Instagram.

Jackson isn’t a baby anymore — he’s a two-year-old toddler. But the memory of his pregnancy is still fresh.

How is this new pregnancy going?

Tori replies, revealing that this time, it’s "a lot harder."

"But," she claims, it is ultimately "still easy."

That may sound a little odd, so Tori hastily adds: "If that makes sense."

Tori reveals that her first pregnancy was, as far as pregnancies go, like a dream.

"I had no symptoms with J [Jackson]," Tori tells her fans and followers.

Well, that’s not entirely true, she admits.

She adds: "other than egg aversion."

Notably, eggs are high on the list of the most common pregnancy aversions out there — just a few spaces behind coffee.

But Tori reveals: "I’ve got all the symptoms this time."

What does "all of the symptoms" mean, exactly?

That could mean most or all of: nausea, vomiting, tender breasts, food aversions, fatigue, increased urination, heartburn, and constipation.

None of that sounds like a lot of fun.

Now, Tori is believed to only be in her first trimester at the moment, given her November due date.

Her second trimester could bring even more symptoms, from messing with her skin to giving her dizzy spells.

So … things may get worse before they get better.

But even with what she’s already experiencing, Tori is extremely hyped.

Another fan asked her how she responded when she got the news that Jackson is going to be a big brother.

"I screamed and cried," Tori revealed to her fans.

She then makes an exciting promise: "I’ll share the video some time."

We would love to see that!

Individual pregnancies vary because people are different, and that is even true for the same couple from one pregnancy to the next.

See, the placenta attached itself to the uterine wall in order to leech nutrients from the host.

But in addition to absorbing proteins and stripping calcium from bones and teeth to build a tiny skeleton, the placenta also releases hormones into the body.

These hormones are the products of the embryo, and unless you’re giving birth to your first child’s clone, the second child will have different DNA.

That means a genetic script to make different hormonal demands of the mother’s body.

There’s also a simpler angle that can explain why pregnancies can vary. People age, grow, and change as years pass.

Little People, Big World fans are obviously enthused to see Tori’s pregnancy journey.

As is often the peril of following the exploits of a reality star, however, these fans may have to wait some time before they see everything.

For every post on social media, other things will be held back — recorded on camera and played months after the fact.

Fans still remember seeing Jackson’s 2017 birth.

It will be a real treat for the world to get to know baby #2.
