Things that happen to you when pregnant!!

You know that pregnant glow everyone keeps talking about? Beautiful skin and hair etc etc, well I am here to tell you that:

  1. Not everyone has that.
  2. Even if you do, you pay the price for it after delivery with excessive hair fall. I kid you not.

Yeah your hair will get thicker at one point, your hair will even grow faster and your nails will grow as though you’ve fertilized them (if you think about it, your hormones do act as fertilizer here).

Here are a few things that happened to me while pregnant:

  • My hair grew longer and thicker. But the texture was horrible!!
  • My fingers were always swollen in the mornings and the swelling only went down in the afternoon. Until then I could barely make a fist!!
  • Towards the end of my pregnancy, around the 7th month, I started experiencing a pain on my right wrist that would shoot up all the way into my thumb. No amount of massages helped. My baby was premature and even after delivery this pain continued and got worse. Now my entire wrist hurt and I couldn’t lift anything heavy and my baby was slowly getting heavier!!! When I met an orthopaedic doctor I was informed that I was suffering from what is called ‘De Quervain Tenosynovitis’. Apparently so common in pregnant woman that I didn’t even need to tell him my symptoms. All I did was raise my hand and he guessed *rolls eyes*. Anyways, if you are experiencing something similar, see a doctor. They will give you a cortisone injection and ask you to wear a stint. In severe cases they might perform a small surgery. You get to leave the doctor’s office the same day, I promise.
  • You get super picky about the littlest of things. Be prepared to bite your tongue more often than not. And if you are a motor mouth like I am, God help you.
  • Acidity/Acid reflux – this will happen, just wait for it.
  • Sleepless nights. Whether you sleep during the day or not, you will be up most nights peeing.
  • Some other’s that I can’t remember now.

Here’s what I did not have:

  • Cravings
  • Morning sickness (thank god)

As great a joy becoming a mother is, be prepared to not recognize your taste buds and your body after getting pregnant.

I have realized I don’t like some of the things I used to love and I have begun to like some things that I absolutely hated. For example, Chocolate ice-cream – hated before I got pregnant and now it’s all I want!!!!

But for all of what I said, once you meet your little one, everything you put up with 8-9-10 months as the case may be for you will be so worth it.
