I’m sure that must be a gender predictor.  Sounds like it should be! You scratch girl 🙂

Hi. I’m Jessica. I’m almost 13 weeks and my poop is green. Awesome (not!).

I think one of the strangest things I had happen to me early on in my pregnancy were my dreams. Right before I found out I was pregnant I kept having the most horrible nightmares ever. Horor movies had nothing on the butcher fest dreams that hit me a number of times every night.

I couldn’t figure out what in the world was going on. I wasn’t watching anything remotely scary to egg it on, or had anything else going on in the day that would influence them. My cousin kept insisting I was pregnant when I would mention them and I thought she was nuts. Turned out she was right!

I had a weird metallic type taste in my mouth for the 1st and 2nd trimester. No fun at all

I’m much farther along then some other posters (39 weeks) but I never knew it was normal to develop carpel tunnel syndrome and such sore knuckles and hands.  Every morning my finger joints are so stiff and sore I have to bend them back into place.  Very weird!

I think the charlie horses and toe cramps I’ve had are the strangest (and most painful) pregnancy symptoms I’ve had!!

The hydronephrosis…didn’t even know what that was until I had it.

The inability to tolerate the smell of vinyl (fake leather chairs were the worst!)

I smell poop and fart 90% of the time.  It’s disgusting.

Not really a side effect but my cat wouldn’t leave me alone.  If I was home he was sitting on my lap, following me around the house like a puppy, meowing CONSTANTLY.  When I was sleeping he would sleep on my belly until I started to get big and it got uncomfortable then he started sleeping on my head.  If I locked him out of my room he would scratch and meow at the door until I let him in so he could sleep on my head.  Once baby came he went about his pre-pregnancy routine which was basically doing his own thing unless he wanted something.

@rachiebabie:  I could always smell poop and fart early on! 

I think the extra hair is wierd (not so noticable now but it was one of my first symptoms early on) and I was expecting my hormones to just make me cry all the time – I wasn’t expecting the uncontrolable laughter!!!!

Some of the crazy reasons I’ve cried: My pringles tasted bad, I accidentally stood on a slater bug, I thought I ran over a lizard, when I went back to check I hadn’t run over the lizard so I cried again!

@Mollie-Rose:  yes, the laughter. Im still very early, but I have found myself in laughing fits on a couple of different occasions… with tears. Whatever, I’ll take it!
