Pregnancy Symptoms they don't tell you about...

Hello everyone! I'm due in a few days (I'm sooo over being pregnant)! I thought it would be fun to start a convo about all those little surprising 'issues' that can happen during pregnancy that you never learn about until you go through it yourself. I'll start:

They never told me pregnancy would cause excessive drooling!

This is my second pregnancy and is NOTHING like my first!!!!! My first was a walk in the park compared to this one. I've had headaches, migraines, I'm hot and sweaty all the time, I'm moody, I'm hungry, nauseated, exhausted, sore, swelled up. I drink and eat all day and I'm still hungry and thirsty - nothing satisfies my appetite, but so much nauseates me. I forget so much, I'd forget my name if I didn't wear a badge all day at work. I'm only 24 weeks along, so I have a bit to go. . . .

I switched from a dr to a midwife, cause I thought since my first labor was easy my second one would be no problem. I am really being to wonder. . . .

There are other things that could be a signs, like physical signs of pregnancy like tender breast, nausea, increased need to urinate, abdominal bloating and etc. Anyway, if you are TTC you should consider to read the 'Getting Pregnant Plan by Michelle Adams e-book' from, in my opinion after I read it, it has a lot of information about how to increase your chances of conceiving, help you understand your body, how to boost your fertility and pregnancy stuff even if you have PCOS and irregular period too. Hope it helps.

Fun idea! They never told me that the up all night peeing business starts at the beginning of the pregnancy, not the end. They also didn't tell me that I could be in real labor having full blown hard contractions for 4 days without dilating and the nurses would refuse to admit me to the hospital. Thank God we moved and I will have a different doc and different hospital this time. We almost lost my son because I was so worn out by the time they admitted me and broke my water to speed things up. He had the cord wrapped twice around his neck.

I already had a weak bladder and leaked a lot with the first one, I'm so scared about once I'm prego with the second! lol

I didn't know i'd be sick morning noon and night for so long. Told the people at work if I just ran out of the room randomly it was because I was sick. wasn't uncommon for me to run out of the room 5+ times a day! Also, I didn't know my leg could go numb..

this is my third pregnancy in three years.. this baby will be born when my eldest will be 2 years and 6 mths.. but because my body hasnt really has a chance to get over the other pregnacies and my pelvic floor is weak, i cant get over the leaking down there when i sneeze or anything strenuous. my own fault really, but i didnt really expect it.
Also, i am not blessed with a pregnancy glow that everyone talkes about, it is more like blotchy, and sometimes almost acne... very embarrassing, but i have been told it will clear up once bubs is born...
lucky the little munchkins are worth all our troubles..

I didn't know that I would "leak" with my second pregnancy. Apparently since you're body has already gone through this once it's ready to go, so sure enough, every now and then, my bra is a little damp...ugh!
