    I have had sinus trouble for the last two weeks :S i haven't had sinus trouble in about two or three years... it seems pregnancy has brought it back.
    I have also had really sore ribs. I normally sleep on my side but it seems to be hurting my ribs alot more

    22 weeks.

    It's so good to know what I'm feeling is "normal". I can't decide whether I can feel Braxton Hicks or not. I think I have a mix of constipation (sorry TMI!) and stretching going on. I'm not too concerned I have 2 friends who were both plagued by them and have healthy children.
    One thing that had definitely happened in the last few weeks is I have relaxed massively! I was a stress head before being preggers. Now I'm so relaxed. I'm actually enjoying this right now! Trying to make the most of it as I know the feeling won't last ha!

    On the watery mucous front...

    Has anyone had water loss which has a distinct semen smell to it?

    Sara amniotic fluid is meant to smell like semen

    Yes it definately does for some.

    However, I feel I'm not being "listened" too when I say this is type of watery discharge I'm losing. Its been happening since 13 weeks.

    At 13 weeks the ED did an amnioswab which was negative. The problem is I'd only be losing about a teaspoon, maybe less, per day.

    Given my history, I want to be cautious with even the smallest the leak.

    I'm 20 weeks tomorrow so maybe people will listen to me from that point.

    Hi all

    I'm 18 weeks pregnant at the moment and this is my first pregnancy, so everything is new to me. Should I be expecting my baby to start moving or is too early yet?

    Re: Pregnancy Symptoms in the Second Trimester

    I'm 20 weeks and have had so far:

    Hair Growth - specially on the belly
    Vivid Dreams
    Stabbing pains across belly
    Tiredness
    Lower back pain
    Calf Cramps
    Itchy Skin
    Incredibly Emotional
    Not walking as fast
    Puffed while walking up stairs
    Waking at weird times
    Heartburn
    Peeing more at night
    Feeling baby move
    Increased Hunger
    Light Headed
    Fast Heartbeat
    Memory Loss
    Nose Bleeds
    Stuffy Nose
    Sharp Pain in lower abdomen when sneezing
    Bad Headaches
    Breathlessness
    Trouble Sleeping
    Heavy Breasts
    Heightened sense of smell
    Funny Taste Buds
    Constipation
    Drooling
    Snoring (apparently...)
    Round ligament pain
    Sensitive to heat/hot days/humidity
    Thirsty
    Stomach upsets
    Ankle pain
    Cravings/Aversions

    The worst I would have to say is the round ligament pain. It goes from sharp pains after I move suddenly to just aching at the end of the day. Closely followed by my aversion to red meats. It makes meal planning very hard
