I'm now 19 weeks and so happy to be pregnant, at 33 and with pcos and one miscarriage this surprise pregnancy in my eyes is a complete miricale.
I thought I would share some of my aches and pains to see how many others get them and basically how I compare to others!
To be honest I thought I would just breeze through pregnancy and carry on everyday life normally and glow, I'm not really sure this has happened!
From two weeks to ten weeks my breasts were so painful I cried and found it hard to wear a bra!
From two weeks to 12 weeks I felt like crap, like I had a hangover, I felt nausea, extreme tiredness and like my mind was foggy.
From 12 weeks to the present day I now throw up at least once a day.
I can't sleep in my bed, so I sleep on the sofa, even though I tried a pregnancy pillow I just couldn't get comfy.
Sleep is very broken and I wake up early
Some cravings, mainly carbs and salt!
Bad hip pain and back pain sporadically over the weeks.
Shin splints in my left shin mainly weeks 8 to ten
From week 10 to now extremely painful, stiff hands and now my wrists!
Headaches mainly from weeks two to ten!
Heartburn on and off, with far to much gas!
My tummy is lovely round and neat, I have put on just over 1 stone!
Spots, I never get these normally!
Gone off nearly all my usual foods
Round ligament aches and pains in week ten and eighteen
Emotional, cry very easily and so anxious
Lots of cm,
Sore arches of my feet!
Vivid dreams from weeks ten and seventeen till present day
From week six to 12 I had major nasal congestion, thank god for vix
My heart seems to beat so fast and loud I sometimes feel like I'm going to have a heart attack
I drink soooooo much water
Bloating from week four to ten
So there u are, most of my symptoms listed, is this normal! And how do u feel in pregnancy? Great, amazing, super women? Or like me not that great but still very happy!
