    1. SPD/PGP
    2. Heartburn and not being able to sleep horizontally
    3. The constant guilt and fear that I'd ruined my life by accidentally getting pregnant.

    Only 3? That's nowhere enough

    Depression entire pregnancy
    No sleep entire pregnancy
    Nausea vomiting entire pregnancy
    Back pain entire pregnancy
    Carpel tunnel
    Heartburn
    Hip pain
    Swelling

    X 5 kids

    Plus incompetent cervix for the 5th
    So for that one I'll add
    No sex /complete pelvic rest
    And bed rest
    Both for the duration

    Without a doubt, the anxiety and worry that we wouldn't have a live baby at the end of the 40 weeks. I worried all day, every day for both of my pregnancies.

    Where do I start 😆
    1. Early onset preeclampsia at 31 weeks leading to severe preeclampsia at 36 weeks, ICU for me, emergency c-section and a tiny bub in neonatal care for 2 weeks 😢
    2. SPD and sacroiliac joint dysfunction from week 11 leaving me in constant severe pain. I still have numbness in both feet.
    3. Carpal tunnel from about week 22.
    4. The snoring that was so bad (from me lol) I had to move into the spare room to give DH some sleep.
    5. Pregnancy acne on my chest and shoulders. Ick.
    6. No alcohol! How cruel when you really really need a glass of vino to chill out and you can't have it!!
    7. No macca's sundaes. DH brought me one in hospital a couple of days after bub was born
    8. Having a partially retained placenta requiring surgical removal at 8 weeks post partum just when I was getting back on my feet.
    I'll stop there, not much fluffiness there lol. She is now 12 weeks old and the most adorable little munchkin!!

    Complete pelvic rest (no dtd for 6 months) and 2 months in bed
    5 blood transfusions between 16 and 20 weeks
    Couldn't go to my school reunion (that I was looking forward to) because I wasn't allowed to fly

    But really the worst was no maccas sundaes

    Fluid retention
    Waddling (I thought I'd never walk normally again)
    Back pain
    Inability to lie on stomach/sleep comfortably

    For those that want to eat raw cake mix just buy a pack of Orgran no egg powder and use instead of eggs! If I'd known about that stuff when I was pregnant I probably would've gained so much more weight due to baking more often.

    1. Hyperemesis gravidarum and everything that comes along with it - vomiting every day for 9 months, constant nausea, numerous hospital admissions with failed attempts to get cannulas in due to dehydration, expensive medication not covered by the PBS, constipation caused by the medication...
    2. Heartburn and reflux (just awesome in combination with 1.)
    3. Ligament pain
    And still, I'm back doing it a second time because it's all worth it (most days!).
