Has anyone experienced this, is it normal?
The symptoms are dificult to describe but like a heaviness in the chest/organs when I sit.
Funny taste in my mouth and gagging while brushing teeth.
This has been quite sudden.
I had a miscarriage in January so I am quite anxious about everything sad

They sound fairly normal - did they just appear at 24 weeks? I'd contact your midwife if you're concerned, if you're in the UK you should have an appointment with them round about now?

Yeah they've appeared on the last couple of weeks, I had an appointment 2 weeks ago, my next one is in two weeks, and unless I go to hospital they won't give me an appointment earlier

Sorry, symptoms appeared on the last couple of days, not weeks.

Give your midwife a call, she might need to ask a few questions but could set your mind at rest. flowers

Ok thanks I will do that. Although every time I call (baby not moving made me call a few weeks ago too) sends me into anxiety attack and I start sobbing, they tell me to go to hospital! But they are understanding.

Same thing happened to me last time around - at exactly 24 weeks I suddenly started throwing up again, and all my first trimester food aversions came back. It lasted about a fortnight, and I was told by a MW that "sometimes things like that happen". Whatever the reason, though, please don't think of it as a bad sign - as I'm sure you've already heard, morning sickness is usually the sign of a healthy pregnancy, not of problems.

Yes I've heard that, unfortunatelly I had morning sickness before my miscarriage so I get anxious with anything now. Your words are soothing tho as I haven't found the courage to call the ward without breaking down. Baby is moving away so that is reassuring.

Baby moving is always a good sign flowers
