Hiya what are your most Bizarre or unexpected symptoms?
I'm 5 weeks and it seems my bum is changing as much as my boobs!
My partner is amazed as now I have a god sized bum when it was tiny before and it goes all numb if I sit on it too long. :p

I wake up at 3am every night like clockwork. Bizarre.

alita7 Fri 07-Mar-14 20:39:44

I've been waking up around that time too but cos of trapped wind :p

I have the most annoying restless legs. Can't describe it but they just feel tickly and I have to keep moving them around! 6 weeks with dc2 and feeling HUGE already..

My body temperature is about 200 degrees. I'm usually always cold in bed, and sleep with about 4 layers and thick socks. Currently can't sleep in anything and can't he any covers on. Not a pretty sight!!!

Burping. Every morning, for about an hour and a half. The rest of the day I get a gurgling stomach and a little nausea but it's the burping that's really odd!

Mine has been absolutely crippling toothache, has had me in tears so many times, spent nearly the whole day last sat actually sobbing over it and I'm not expecting to slept tonight it's so bad at the moment!

Been to dentist loads and there is NOTHING wrong and NOTHING is helping anymore!

Itchy nipples. All the time.

General itching, constant hunger for junk food, crying at nothing at all.

I really really struggle to brush my teeth properly! Just putting the toothbrush in my mouth makes me heave! Urgh! It's awful

alita7 Sat 08-Mar-14 10:44:47

Haha Amy- that one made me laugh :p
Cutting out the crap- I get terrible wind so I'm burping lots too :p

squizita Sat 08-Mar-14 11:02:43

Oh- sweaty eyeballs. Not balls, but lids. I look like Kiss when I wear eye make up!

A little numb patch- with ds1 it was on top of right thigh, ds2 on top right of bump. With this pregnancy it's a spot on my back just below my bra strap again on the right. Only about 1 inch square but its completely numb to the point where if I run something over it, eg a feather or a pencil I really cannot feel a thing. Most bizarre. Sensation came back after a few weeks of delivery before.

Greasy hair! Can normally wash every 2 days, now it's a daily requirement.

inmybelly Sat 08-Mar-14 18:49:29

Agree with the itching!!

KittyCatKittyCat Sat 08-Mar-14 19:01:03

Gas is quite bad, and forgetting half my vocabulary!

alita7 Sat 08-Mar-14 20:52:40

Get what you mean kittycat I've been 'lost for words' a couple of times but am also very easily flustered, confused and irritated, my ability to multi task has diminished :p

inmybelly Sat 08-Mar-14 21:01:01

I have to write the date about 50 times a day, and have been having to double check nearly every time.

TwosaCrowd Sat 08-Mar-14 21:47:18

Last pregnancy one ear was completely blocked, felt like I was in an airplane constantly, and I kept having to squeeze it with my hand to try relieve pressure. Had it checked out but nothing. This time I'm getting hot flushes in my face whenever I go from the cold to warm, or when the central heating comes on. My face goes all red and blotchy!

RedCountryRoads Sat 08-Mar-14 22:28:44

Nose bleeds. something that I very rarely got before

alita7 Sat 08-Mar-14 23:13:13

Does any one know if this is anything to do with it pregnancy or just coincidence: the but just before the ear canal hurts lots! Dh says it's red and has enlarged pores. It hurts when touched or even when I smile!!!!

alita7 Sat 08-Mar-14 23:13:39

*the bit just before

Fluffybastardcloudkittens Sat 08-Mar-14 23:23:38

Congested ears is my most bizarre, usually when I've gone from warm to cold. Anything sugary also gives me awful awful trumps.
A lovely one has been that my hair has not only thickened but also become more cooperative to style - I can even go 3 days between washes without feeling heinous.
Oh also the hairs on my stomach have got a lot darker, I've got a tummy beard! I hope it fades.

Greentshirt I had that and it was caused by ligaments in the jaw stretching, lasted a few weeks, I was sure I had a rotten tooth but then suddenly disappeared.

When I was first pregnant I had a really bad taste at the back of my throat. I mean really bad!!
