    Hello girls!

    I thought it would be nice for women who (fingers crossed) come into this part of the forum from TTC or women who join the forum already pregnant..

    ..I thought we could list our symptoms and cravings so that women can read and know what to expect or, if they are concerned, check if other women have similar feelings... Here goes!

    CRAVINGS
    - Milk
    (Gone off MacDonalds and gherkins)

    SYMPTOMS
    - Twinges
    - Sore breasts
    - Tiredness
    - Feeling lightheaded and faint
    - Sickness (although fortunately I haven't ACTUALLY been sick - YET!)
    - Hips aching
    - Slight discharge (this has been confirmed to be normal thankfully! :))

    I hope this helps :D xxx

    -Very windy.

    needing to eat less fod in a siting, but also eat more often (in other words five smaller meals, rather than the three meals I usually eat).

    I did also walk into a restaurant at Christmas with the OH and had to leave immediately because the smell of food (which was fabulous to everyone else) made me feel revolting!
