    Talking Weird Pregnancy Symptoms?

    Hi all,

    Just thought it might be interesting for everyone to share their weird and unexpected pregnancy symptoms.

    The weirdest one for me so far has been having strong food aversions to very specific foods, e.g. apple skin. I'm finding that I can eat the flesh of an apple, but I gag when I try to eat apple skin. I've also gone off a lot of green vegies, esp. if they're a bit undercooked and crunchy, like snow peas and brocolli.



    What other weird symptoms has everyone else been having?

    i cant eat and drink!
    i can eat, but have to have a few hours in between before i drink
    otherwise it all comes up
    i suffer severe m/s so most things set me off- like opening the fridge (even though it was cleaned from top to toe by dh yesterday), looking at a can of dog food, and wiping my DS bum!

    ah the fun of it all- ok gotta stop as my mouth is watering now!!!

    Yes! I have some weird symptoms!

    I am getting revolted by really weird things - like watching TV - I just can't stand the thought of it at the moment. If I think about watching TV I feel sick. Lots of things just feel revolting and dirty to me. If there are dirty dishes in the kitchen I feel utterly revolted when I look at them. It's really strange.

    hi

    Can't even think about the idea of ham, knew I might be pregnant when I chucked up over a Hawian Pizza.
    Gone of Latte's, used to have one every day before I was pregnant, you'll be hearing on the news that Michel's profits are down, lol.
    Craving mushrooms, mushrooms and more mushrooms.....

    I only had MS for about 3-4 weeks and only chucked 3 times, but the things that set me off mainly were bad Body Odour on people (specifically garlic breath, smokers breath and coffee breath worse still if they are mixed). I cant stand smoking. And the one thing that still makes me gag is trying to swallow those big nasty multivitamins, there huge and they often get stuck in my throat and I almost gag on them.

    My nipples are sooo incredibly itchy, sore/sensitive and hard!! Grrrrr!! Not sure about weird, but certainly annoying and painful!! I also keep getting weird stitch-like feelings in my tummy and cramps as well. Oh the joy....

    I have a friend who says that she can tell she is pregnant because her urine smells funny. I asked her did it smell funny or was it increased sense of smell. She swears it smells funny.

    My armpits itch!! Heaven forbid I change any body-grooming products, still use the same roll-on, still use the same soap, still use the same type of razor, same washingpowder, same softner, but they are itcy as hell and it started about 5 weeks pg. And just under my arms, no where else. I have tried putting on some bio-oil, just incase they are maybe a bit dry (can't seem to get the light to fall UNDER my arm to see if I see anything and DH is no help at all), but have not helped so far. All that is helping is not indulging the itch
