What unique thing happened to your body following a pregnancy?

Not the things that happen to everybody (or most people) like morning sickness, cravings, etc. Did you have something unique happen during or immediately following a pregnancy? For example - - my hair got wavy (good) but I started getting routine canker sores (bad). What's yours?

Yeah I got these things, I guess they are called hips. lol really though I do get more canker sores too, thats odd. It seems like my hair has gotten thicker. Maybe its the age I'm at or something but I have enough hair for 2 or 3 people.

A big sign is missing your period. Other possible causes of missing your period are travel, fatigue, stress, illness, extreme weight gain or loss, going off the pill and breastfeeding. Morning sickness is also another biggie. It usually occurs 2-8 weeks after conception. I started feeling slight waves of nausea around the time my period was due, obvioously it didn't arrive because I'm 13 weeks pregnant! Other possible causes of nausea are food poisioning, emotional stress and a variety of illnesses. Frequent urination is another sign some women have. It usually rears its ugly head as early as 2-3 weeks after conception. Other possible causes are urinary tract infection, stress or diabetes. Tingling, tender and swollen breasts is a very common pregnancy symptom. It can occur as early as a few days after conception, I know that was the case for my two pregnancies! Other possible causes are birth control pills and impending menstruation. Another sign is darkening of the aerola (area around the nipple) and elevation of the tiny glands around the nipple. This usually happens later in the first trimester, although I noticed it around the same time I got a positive pregnancy test, when my period was due. Other possible causes of this are hormonal imbalances or the effect of a prior pregnancy. A big sign for me was blue and pink lines under skin and later on abdomen. For me, I found that my breasts were the first to look like a road map with blue veins, about 5 days after conception. After that my thighs, hands and feet started to show veins as well. Later on, purple veins appeared under my armpits, on my eyelids and on my cheeks - I have very light skin. This usually occurs later on in the first trimester. Other possible causes are hormone imbalance or the effect of a prior pregnancy. Food cravings can drive pregnant women insane! They usually appear in the first trimester. Other possible causes include poor diet, stress and impending menstruation. A big sign for me, was tiredness. I used to almost be an insomniac, and about a week and a half after conception, I struggled to keep my eyes open past 8.00pm. I also started to have 'grumpy pregnant lady' mood swings! I'm going to include the link to a trying to conceive forum that I think you might find useful. It's full of supportive women with boundless knowledge about these issues. I learnt so much there that I doubt I would have learnt otherwise.

It took me two and a half months to actually find out I was pregnant. I had no symptoms that I recognized as the typical pregnancy symptoms (Morning sickness, aching breasts etc) A month and a half in, when I was supposed to get my second period (I bled normally in the first two months, hence why I didn't even know I was pregnant!) I started to get dizzy, and almost pass out. This happened all of four times maybe? I was putting the blame on my period, or simply standing up too quickly. At two and a half months, a few days before I was due for my third period, I suddenly had to puke. Although I didn't have morning sickness (Just nausea during the end of my first trimester - than it went away completely), I had a spare test laying around, I decided to take it, and viola, i was preggo! I did still bleed though, so I ended up going to the doctor to check it out - and sometimes, my doc said that they don't know why you bleed, you just do. I was put on bedrest, and the rest of my pregnancy has been well! However, as for being tired, cramps or aches? Nothing that I wouldn't associate with the normal period symptoms...No weight gain, no cravings, nothing like that, it's still early Once the egg is implanted, then you may feel a bit of cramping (Turns out, I thought I was getting my period, and I bled from that - but not all women do) I was oblivious to being pregnant - so I didn't notice anything, or wasn't hyper sensative to it. However, before, when I thought I was, I was noticing all these symptoms and signs...when I wasn't pregnant at all! Your body sure does trick you!
