So far mine is sneezing, have been doing it all the time since BFP.

There were loads I had read about but I hadn't heard of sneezing as a symptom.

Nosebleeds. Painful tingling in my hip- it's like having a tens machine on there!

My armpits turned orange in my first pregnancy confused

Clumsiness and spilling food down myself all the jeffing time! Used to say I needed a bib.

I always have a cold around the time AF is due and I get my BFP instead, then the stuffy nose stays with me the entire time I am pregnant!

I used to sneeze too! For probably the first few months, every morning I would do about 6 or 7 sneezes in a row when I first woke up. Bizarre!

Other than that, I have developed this horrible thing whereby if something pisses me off (obnoxious drivers, someone cutting in a queue etc.) I stew on it for days. Normally I would just forget about it after a few minutes.

My boobs get a weird milky sweet smell. shock

I got a bad case of thrush a week before I found out I was pregnant. I'm not someone who's prone to it at all.

I developed eczema in early pregnancy all over my back and chest and later my hands. I asked the dr about it at the booking appointment (6weeks ish) and she assumed it was a flare up but I've never had eczema before, not even as a child.

Dreaming. Epic, huge adventure dreams. Every time I closed my eyes!

Oh and my hair went curly!

NaraDeer Sun 05-Jun-16 20:14:51

My lips swelled and my palms used to go bright red and itchy confused

Crazy dreams, they are so vivid, like a film.

The desire to eat soap(can be any but mainly dove)... From 2 weeks in right until the very end!!

Nosebleeds - more so in my first pregnancy, but I've had a couple so far with this one too.
Weird sudden stabbing pain in the back of my right leg that I only seem to get when I'm pregnant. hmm

I've turned basically lactose intolerant. Milk, yoghurt, cheese, you name it, it makes me sick. I haven't gone off it, I really want a bowl of cereal but just can't! Was the same all the way through my last pregnancy too, thought baby might be lactose intolerant but I've never seen a child who drinks more than DD! I eat dairy just fine when not pregnant. Weird.

MagicDucky Mon 06-Jun-16 11:23:11

*more milk than DD

MyBreadIsEggy Mon 06-Jun-16 11:47:06

Magic the same thing happened to me last time - not while I was pregnant, but suddenly after DD was born, I could no longer tolerate dairy! It gave me awful stomach cramps and runny bowels sad Now I'm pregnant again, I seem to be able to tolerate it again hmm it's weird!
