Hi Ladies, just starting this thread for a bit of fun really... What are the random symptoms you have had and googled only to be told they are just a completely normal part of pregnancy no one has ever mentioned to you before!!

My most recent one is (Sorry if TMI) Alot of Horrid Green nose mucus in the mornings... apparently completely normal in 2nd Trimester!!

Rapid hair growth!! I shave 'down there' and within 2 days it look like I haven't done it for a week!

SlB09 · 11/04/2017 20:34

REALLY itchy boobs!

TeaAndPjs · 11/04/2017 20:49

Dunno if it's normal nut spend the whole day overheating and having hot flushes and then from 6-10pm I het pretty cold and then overheat once I'm in bed!! Currently sitting with 2 blankets, got full pjs on and housecoat and still don't feel that warm considering

Ahaha Ew i've given up trying to tame it recently! i'm trying to learn to accept it before i get so big i can't do anything about it!

SIB Itchy boobs is a good one!!... are yours itchy constantly? Most of my itchyness is on my tattoos and as ive got massive ones on both of my thighs its becoming quite annoying!

Tea i've learnt everything is normal in pregancy! Hopefully the warmer weather helps you out and stops you feeling cold!

Oh and I haven't got the biggest off boobs (b cup) and they haven't really grown much yet (I'm ten week on Thursday) but my nipples have gotten bigger!! Which makes me boobs look smaller πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

confusedat23 · 11/04/2017 21:17

Thats ok Ew although mine were DD before they still havn't grown much just maybe filled out! Lol... funny what you say about the nipples though! Lol

I'm hoping my boobs catch up! And I've started getting the little spot things you get on nipples, my boobs feel fuller just not bigger! X

SlB09 · 11/04/2017 22:15

Itchy mainly when I take my bra off, or get warm like in the bath, or some days I literally could scratch my nipples off!!! Haha pregnancy is so random 😲

ew1990 · 11/04/2017 22:16

When are all you ladies due about?

SlB09 · 11/04/2017 22:24

Beginning september x

FamilySpartan · 11/04/2017 22:26

Dried yellow stuff on my nipples which is apparently colostrum.

ew1990 · 11/04/2017 22:37

@FamilySpartan how far are you? X

ew1990 · 11/04/2017 22:38

@SlB09 beginning of November for me xx

FamilySpartan · 11/04/2017 22:43

ew, I'm 24 weeks.

ew1990 · 11/04/2017 22:58

Ahh right, did you recently get this? Only asking coz I had dried stuff on nipples yesterday and was to embarrassed to ask anyone what it was πŸ™ˆ

NinaMarieP · 11/04/2017 23:04

I thought I was pretty well prepared, but the itchy boobs, dry flaky nipples and increased hairiness caught me by surprise. Pregnancy is soooo attractive, is it not? Grin

(24 weeks)

FamilySpartan · 11/04/2017 23:06

ew, I first noticed it at around 16 weeks.

Laura2507 · 12/04/2017 00:14

Nose bleeds. Yesterday I blew into a tissue and it was pretty gross.

It's so random - what use is a nose bleed to a pregnant body?!

(22 weeks)

TeaAndPjs · 12/04/2017 08:22

I'm due november!

My boobs haven't got any bigger whereas every other pregnancy I've been up at least 2 bra sizes by now!

confusedat23 · 12/04/2017 09:20

Laura I think your nosebleeds are like my snott! (There is also some blood in it sometimes) apparently related to the amount of blood being pumped through but who knows???

Another symptom here... I cannot hold onto anything without dropping it! Literally my hands are not working!

I am due 26th October so 12 weeks tomorrow Smile

I had my first ever nosebleed this week - thankfully it was fairly minor but it was a bit disconcerting to be sat on the loo and notice drops of blood falling onto my arm.

I am also incredibly dropsy at the moment it's like I forget I'm holding something and just let go...

JJ1612 · 12/04/2017 14:24

My face seems to have exploded into a load of freckles. My partner mentioned how I'm quite freckly (usually I only have a few on my nose and cheeks) and when I googled it apparently it's a pregnancy symptom Confused

LokisSister · 12/04/2017 18:45

I have a super annoying Twitchy eyelid - although you can't see it moving, it feels like it don't stop! 32+3 and it's been happening for about 26 weeks of those Smile

SelfObsessionHoney · 12/04/2017 18:47

Nose bleeds about three times a week
Really itchy left tit
Hot needle feeling through my right nipple, both nipples are now massive and almost purple.

Laura2507 · 12/04/2017 20:06

Lok.. I've also had a twitchy eyelid! And today my left thumb was really twitchy for ages. Bizarre!
