Hairy tummy for sure. This time I’m breaking out like a teenager and my skin is usually clear. I’m breaking out everywhere too, not just my face. I am not thrilled.

Im not pregnant now but with my son, I lost my depth perception for the most part. I told my doctor about it and there wasnt much to be done. Weirdest thing ever. Everyone I told about that was really weirded out by that. I couldnt park a car or antyhing and had to really be aware of my surroundings. Also, I would crave the smell of gasoline. The same way you crave oreo cookies. My son’s father at the time would have to like yell at me and be like “I am not taking my pregnant fiance to go sniff gasoline!!!!! wtf!!!!!” . I think those were the two weirdest side affects of pregnancy for me. everything else was pretty standard. my hair was out of control. I had awesome nails and skin, you know, the norm.

Yup, belly hair.  So fun.  I also got a random, long, white hair growing on my right foreram with my first pregnancy.  I looked down one day and it was as if it had sprouted overnight.

Not as funny, but no one warned me about the painful sensation that felt like I had pulled a muscle in my belly or groin when I moved too quickly to stand-up.  It was searing and actually scary the first time it happened.

I have to agree with winniewolf – the amount of secreting has been by far the worst for me, its insanse it at times worries me! and also very uncomfertable feeling.

Ive always had a hairy tummy, lol.. so idk if there is a difference now!?

@KatyElle:  You didn’t break out last time?  Put my vote in for a boy!!!  I know that goes against the old wive’s tale, but my speculation is that our skin does the opposite of its norm when it’s a boy.

The strangest thing so far has been the fact that strawberry yogurt is completely disgusting to me.  I used to eat it all the time.  Strawberry-banana is still good…but strawberry tastes like mold to me. 

 

@jjmomma:  Oh those pains!  I was at a game recently when the Bruin’s scored.  I jumped from my seat cheering and fell back down moaning in pain!  Ooops.

My skin is awful now, but it wasn’t awesome before I went on BC, so maybe it’s also a side-effect of that?

I also have lots of secretions – ick.

And my boobs got insta-big after my BFP. I knew it would happen, I just didn’t realize I’d go up a cup size almost overnight!

@jjmomma: I had that too!!!! there was a period of time around the 7month mark where I actually had like a pulled muscle in my stomach and when my son would kick in that spot it hurt soooooo badly!!!!! my eyes would water from the pain! but that would only happen if i laid a certain way and then he kicked the spot. it was ridiculous for the few days i had that.

My nipples are weird and flaky. I usually avoid them in the mirror because they gross me out 🙂

I had the occasionaly break out before pregnancy around my period, but I have a full on pizza face now.

Random shooting vagina pains! @jjmomma: And those pulling pains. Ouch. I usually forget when I have to get up in the middle of the night for the millionth bathroom run.

My belly button is erect! I gross out Darling Husband all the time because I chase him around the bedroom and ask him if he wants to feel my belly button inside him

I also had one bum knee before pregnancy and now my “good knee” hurts more than the bad knee. I hate stairs.

Does sneezing hurt anyone else?

@mrsjazz: I also have really dry and flaky nipples, it really bothers me! I actually ordered some lanolin for them and I hope that helps with the dryness.

I’m glad others are having those wierd pains. I get them when I change sides at night or sometimes just getting out of bed. I wonder what they are from?

And I’ve got hair all over now. It’s gross.
