I'm really tired of the bleeding gums... i have one area on the top teeth that has bled a lot, but now i have a new very swollen patch on my bottom gums... ughh...
I also SWEAT a lot, I mean on the cooler days i'm much better, and it hasn't been like all that COOL yet, but i still feel like i am gross and nasty and sweaty - i feel for any of you who have previously had babies and been really big during the heat of the summer (i wasn't very big during the dead of the summer), but i have felt HOTTER than normal this summer with the pregnancy... i just always feel sweaty and that makes me feel dirty, i just want to go for a walk and not feel disgusting.
the having to pee all the time is annoying too. i don't even mind it in the middle of the night because i know my bathroom is right there, but no matter how much i pee before i go out - as soon as i get to wherever i'm going, i need to find the bathroom... or we can't go anywhere for too long that there are no bathrooms, it's annoying...!!! ahhh!
i feel bad complaining because i love my little princess and i really am cherishing this time that i get to have her this close to me and all to myself, i love her kicks and i love knowing she's right here withe me all the time, but yea - this thread was about the side effects we don't like so i had to lol
I keep feeling like I have to have a BM... will go to go, and nothing... or, I sit there forever and then finally go. and its not like its a lot, or hard, I just think that Wee dude is resting on some vital organs.
I do tend to get gas easier. Also, the HOT FLASHES are back, and indigestion are back... not to mention the heart burn from EVERYTHING. Oh, and constantly peeing myself, or leaking urine. Oh the joys of a baby on your bladder
My teeth and gums were hurting me, so I had to up my tooth care. For the first time in years I'm brushing AND flossing multiple times a day. Helped a lot!
I've already hit the need to pee every time I stand up.
Robin, your booth comment reminds me of eating at a restaurant issue I had this past weekend. Had to pee (of course) and I DID NOT FIT THROUGH THE STALL DOORS. I had to wait for the handicap bathroom to be free. I just could not get in! I never had this issue with DS!
Surprisingly my heartburn is better now than it was in the 2nd tri. Go figure.
Though I have developed some sort of blood blister on my arm. It once decided to burst while I was driving up to the base gates. Boy that was fun because it was shooting blood out everywhere. Poor guard didn't know what to say. They don't want to do anything about it, just keep an eye on it and see if it goes away after pregnancy. Woo.

I have gum issues too. I'm flossing (never did before) and brushing(always do this one LOL) and urgh it's not getting better.
I also do not like having a cold and not being able to take anything.

Mine is definitely the extra sweating. I already overheat easily but this is getting ridiculous! Ugh. It is so embarrassing

I think I'm developing carpal tunnel syndrome, I've woken up the past few mornings with the worst aches in my wrists. Also I'm constantly wearing sandals because I can't possibly tie my shoes anymore, thankfully living in CA it's still been in the high 90's so that doesn't matter too much but come Oct/Nov that will change.
My worst is insomnia. I am so tired in the evenings, then wide awake half the night. I've been making myself stay up later at night, but still at 2:30-3:00 a.m. I am wide awake and don't usually fall back asleep until 5ish.
Right now I have a horrible head/chest cold that won't go away. Everyone in my family got sick over the weekend, they are all feeling better but me. It's still sticking around for me.
