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.


Work

Returning to Work If you take your full leave entitlement and the date you confirmed with your employer for returning has not changed, you do not need to give any further notice. However it is good practice to get in touch towards the last two months of your leave just to reconfirm your intention. If you decide you do not wish to return to work, your period of notice will be as stated in your regular contract (usually one or three months).

What antenatal classes are right for you?
Depending on where you live and what kind of person you are will make a big difference to what antenatal classes will best prepare you for the birth. Think about what kind of ideal birth you hope for but also be practical about all the birth options you might have to opt for, and this will help you focus on what kinds of class will suit you and your partner.

Professional care

Payroll advice
Getting pregnant can be the first step to being an employer than many women have ever made. Although the thought of hiring a nanny or a childminder or au pair may seem far away, if you hire private antenatal care make sure you are doing so legally.
