A-Z Pregnancy Symptoms

Did your pregnancy dreams include visions of a neat rounded belly, and little kicks that made your heart flutter? While it's true that pregnancy has its share of wonderful moments and experiences to cherish, it also has a raft of less than fabulous pregnancy symptoms - including many you'd rather not discuss in public and many you'd probably like to forget (which you will, by the way, since forgetfulness is another symptom).

There are pregnancy symptoms you expected (like morning sickness – which also arrives in the evening) and symptoms you almost definitely didn't (like constipation, nosebleeds and bleeding gums). It's probably reassuring to know that you're not alone suffering these ailments - you're actually joining millions of other expectant women who are also wading their way through a different selection of pregnancy complaints. But it also helps to have some tried and true remedies at your (swollen) fingertips that will allow you to navigate around the majority of pregnancy grumbles.


Cervical Mucus

Cervical Mucus During pregnancy cervical mucus changes due to the increase in the hormone progesterone.  You may find that you produce much more cervical mucus which is quite watery and may be a nuisance.  Try using panty liners if this is a problem.

Tiredness
While this can be a symptom of lack of sleep, it can also be a sign of other problems with which you may need help and treatment, for example anaemia.

Breasts sore

Sore Breasts
Throughout pregnancy, your breasts will have been responding to pregnancy hormones, in preparation for producing milk after the birth.  The main symptom of this will be an increase in the size of your breasts.  They may be quite sore at first and uncomfortable later on.
