5 Pregnancy Symptoms I Have Not Enjoyed So Far!

I am currently 17 weeks pregnant and if I am honest I haven't really enjoyed this pregnancy. Some parts I have and some parts I haven't. But I try not to complain too much because one day soon Obstetric Cholestasis will flare up big time and that is when I will have the right to complain and moan! Here are 5 symptoms I haven't enjoyed in the past 17 weeks -

Sore Breasts - Ouch! Just ouch! In early pregnancy I really suffered with sore breasts, badly! To the point I was in pain when I was wearing a bra or a loose top. They were so sensitive and I have noticed this symptom is coming and going through out!

Gas & Constipation - Not a nice subject but unfortunately it is a pregnancy symptom! and I have had this symptom in my other two pregnancies too. I don't think I had it as bad in my previous pregnancies. I seem to get really unwell with this one, due to constipation and gas. Hopefully it will pass soon.

Stretching pains - I am not sure if it is because this is my third pregnancy, but these stretching pains are much worse and more painful than my other pregnancies. But I also think baby may be lying on a nerve a lot of the time so I am mistaking it for that too.

Out of breath - This may be due to my weight but I have found myself going out of breath so much recently. I will be going out to walk a lot more in the next couple of weeks and taking longer walks back from home from the school run. The last thing I want to happen is to become breathless during labour.

Hormones - In early pregnancy I thought I was lucky not to be so emotional and so hormonal but the past few weeks, my hormones have definitely come out! I can cry over something so little and over something so pathetic.  

Have you had any pregnancy symptoms you haven't enjoyed?

  1. I suffered with heartburn with both my pregnancies which was pretty miserable! And my hormones just go a bit crazy, I mean, I'm a crier normally so when I'm pregnant it can get ridiculous! Hope your worst symptoms pass and you can enjoy the rest of your pregnancy! x
