    Default The Age article - are these true!?

    Found an article tonight which scares me a little about the 'side effects' of pregnancy

    yep I found pregnancy pretty sh1tful to be honest. I was so sick and put on a total of 4kg - DD being 3.15 of that!

    I had food aversions and no nice cravings. Was at the physio from 5 months because of my hips, was in pain constantly and had significantly increased restless leg syndrome.

    It was horrible, and I don't even think mine was bad as I was never hospitalised.

    Glad I did it though - love my DD , but haven't gone back for #2 only now contemplating it and not looking fwd to the pregnant bit. Having said all that some people have a lovely time. It's luck of the draw.
