    Default the not so joyous joys

    what are/were your "joys" that you didnt enjoy in pregnancy.

    mine at the moment are

    feet and ankles swelling like baloons, turning funky colours and weird sensations when i move them.

    spots floating around in my eyes (not all the time)

    heart burn

    and bubs hurting me when she is pushing out my tummy or digging into my back. she is so active its not funny (i dont mind it when she moves, its just that it hurts me soooo much)

    that will do me for now... till i think of something else.

    so what are yours?

    I'm one of the weird people that enjoyed everything pregnancy related, but I was also lucky enough to have two smooth and uneventful pregnancies.

    Right now, vomiting... Can't even keep toast down today and my body aches from throwing up.

    I'm so thankful I have a healthy baby, but so ready for the morning sickness to disappear... Any day now :/

    Oh the joys!

    Nothing with DD, but this one... The pelvic instability! My ligaments are shot and if I sit/lie down for too long, I can't walk without excruciating pain for the next 20 minutes.

    Loving everything else. Just would like some new, non ripped ligaments. Haha


    WooHoo! Another iphone!

    morning sickness
    heartburn and reflux (so bad i had sleep sitting up on an armchair towards the end of pregnancy )
    stretchmarks
    itchy skin
    sore pelvis and back
    heavy, uncomfortable belly
    baby digging into ribs
    baby putting pressure on my pelvis
    light-headed feeling

    I'm not really a glowing pregnant person...which is probably for the best because if i was i'd likely end up having more

    With DS it was Heartburn/reflux, i think i spent the last 10 week sleeping while sitting up but still managed to do at least 10 acid spews and that wasn't in the morning sickness stage. Lots of round ligament pain & lots of nosebleeds which the doctors had no idea as to why, my blood pressure was perfect.

    Round ligament pain! It left me bed bound for days at a time. Once I found a comfy position, I couldn't move or it'd start again.
