6 weird pregnancy symptoms
Carrying a baby is one of the most amazing things your body can do! You made another human being, I mean come on that’s extraordinary! Your belly will round out into a beautiful bump, your skin will have a glow, and you’ll feel little kicks inside your belly. Though things like morning sickness, heartburn and tiredness will take away some of the magic. There is also some strange things your body can do that aren’t really talked about.
This one was a new one to me. I never had them with River, but the newest baby Gordon has mommy’s heart racing. Your body’s blood increases by 50 percent making your heart work harder. You can just be sitting and have your heart race all of a sudden. Most the time it’s completely normal, but do let your doctor know if it’s happening. My doctor did an EKG just to make sure everything was okay. They started early on for me but have lessened now in my second trimester.

I’m talking both ends and a ton of it! I remember early first trimester I ate some broccoli and burped all day long. It was almost to the point of discomfort. Then the unpleasant farting, I was laughing with my sister in a restaurant and had one just creep its way out. Talk about embarrassing, but thankfully the music was loud. Your system slows down when pregnant, so it’s easier for gas to build up. On top of that constipation is another pregnancy problem your likely to encounter.
Let down before baby arrives
At 18 weeks with River I woke up with my shirt wet. I couldn’t figure out what had happened, until I noticed the sports were in my boob area. I went into the restroom and squeezed a little to discover colostrum leaking out.
You can have contractions for days/weeks
With River at 33 weeks are started having back contractions. We went in to be monitored, and ended up being put in magnesium just in case I was in actual labor. Once I left the hospital I had contractions up until 39 weeks and 4 days, when I actually had River. Now that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get checked if you have contractions you can time, but sometimes you can be weeks our from actually delivering.
Peeing when you sneeze
or when you throw up. This is the least fun part of pregnancy for me. I had to change my pants constantly because of it and it could happen at any time. This go around I had it happen a lot sooner and for some women it happens even after you give birth.
It isn’t just in the morning. It can be anytime of the day and all day! some women have it so bad they can’t eat and need I.V. nutrition and fluid. It doesn’t just stop after your first trimester, you can still have it steadily or randomly through out your pregnancy.
