I have been experiencing really bad pain in my hips and lower back, I’ve always had joint problems in the form of lax ligaments, when you are pregnant your body releases a hormone called relaxin, which relaxes the ligaments and can make them stretch too far. Combine this with already having lax ligaments and not being able to take the tablets that I have for my problem and you have a very painful situation.
I’m having some very strange dreams lately which is actually quite entertaining for both myself and the people who make an appearance in said dreams. This is the best symptom so far!
Cravings seem to have started which is huge progress as I’ve not been wanting anything food or drink wise for a while, just forcing things on myself. I’ve been drinking a lot of Yazoo chocolate milkshake, I’m very particular in that it has to be Yazoo, I’ve tried a few substitutes and they just don’t do it for me. I also quite fancy Coco Pops which I guess is on the same line as the chocolate milk thing. I’m hoping the milk well help with my heartburn a little.
