    I hear you about the sleeping liss_jay.

    It takes me about 10 mins to get out of bed everytime I need to go to the loo (5 times a night ) Its just so painful, my hips and pelvis ache something shocking! Its been like this for about 2 months now, but its gotten to the point where Im pretty much on bed rest! I think I might have that SPD ( Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction) oh well lets just hope im in the %5 of women who go into labor on their due date

    My hair changes colour!!!

    Happened with DS in the 3rd tri too. I am naturally a dark blonde, but in my 3rd tri my hair turns dark brown like REALLY dark, but only on my head, eye brows and underarms. My leg hair is still super blonde so you cannot see it. From memory DS was at least 3 months old before my hair went back to it's normal colour.

    Nasty calf cramps in the middle of the night!!! They are so excruciating and my leg just locks up with toes pointed, that i have to try to stand up and pull toes back. As a consequence of this, my calves feels like I have pulled muscles.

    Back ache, sore tight abdomen just to name a few.

    A little place called paradise.

    I lost some pigment in my skin in some patches...My OB told me it would come back after DS was born ( of course I didn't believe him ) But sure enough it did!! and another thing I also got was skin tags (only little ones) 2 under my arm and one on the inner part of my thigh, they have never gone away though...gosh I sound like a right treat

    I'm going through at least half of these symptoms. I try to minimize them through what I eat and do light exercise or short walks
    Swelling: I like to juice fresh fruits and veggies. Strawberries, Kale, spinach are just some of the natural anti-inflammatory foods
    For aches and pains I like to eat cherries, it works better than taking pain killers and is completely safe.
    Sleeplessness I eat almonds, cherries, and or walnuts. They increase your melatonin and relax your body so you are in a better sleep mode.
    NEPTUNE, you complained of leg cramps. I've had those so bad in each of my pregnancies at night it's horrible. I told my doctor about them and he said it was lack of calcium. So I started eating a yogurt before bed and sometimes took a calcium supplement and it almost completely cured my leg cramps.
