10 symptoms of pregnancy that will blow you away (ii)

Pregnancy is such an odd time in a woman’s life. It is a time when almost anything can happen. Yet, no matter how much you read about it, nothing can quite prepare you for it.

So, here are more odd symptoms that some pregnant women have had. 

6. Internal haemorrhoids

We have all heard of haemorrhoids before (pile) but having it internally… that just sucks. There is little that can be done about this but a cold compress and over-the-counter haemorrhoid cream should help. 

7. Discharge

I am not talking about tiny spots of white in your panties. I mean the type that would force you to change your panties during the day. Yup! That happens to some women during pregnancy. 

8. Heartburn that can cause sleepless nights

I know that it may be of no surprise to you that heartburn is a symptom of pregnancy for some women, but the fact that it can cause sleepless nights has got to be news. Some women are forced to sleep while sitting although the pregnancy. It may help to drink water between meals and not while eating. Also, avoiding trigger foods will help. 

9. PUPPP rash

This is short for ‘pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy’. Yeah….I know. It is an extremely itchy rash that is often associated with pregnancy. Baking soda or oatmeal baths have been found to help with the itchiness.

10. Mommy's thumb

Caused by fluid retention, it is pain in the hands and arms. It usually gets worse after birth because you are moving your hands often to care for your baby. Visit a doctor for treatment.

There are many other symptoms like Charley horses, restless legs syndrome, etc. but the point remains that no two pregnancies are exactly the same and each one can come with its surprises. Thus, keep an open mind.
