Hair growth

Yes, those pregnancy hormones can make for some long, luxurious locks of hair, but many women don’t realize that hair growth can also increase all over your body. Yep, that’s right. Expect more hair on your arms, legs, face, stomach, and even nipples during pregnancy. Thank those wonderful pregnancy hormones! Luckily, this hair is not always very noticeable, and it usually goes away right after you give birth.

Peeing on yourself

While it’s pretty obvious that a growing baby on top of your bladder would cause you some additional pressure in the bladder department, most women don’t understand that that means more than just having to go to the bathroom a lot. Prepare to leak, sometimes a lot. Laughing, coughing and sneezing can become dangerous tasks! Make sure you are never too far from the nearest bathroom!

Snoring and constant sniffling

Those wonderful increased hormones are to blame again.. They cause the mucus membranes in our nose to swell up, and even sometimes bleed. This can leave you feeling like you have a perpetual head cold with no relief in sight. You might also find yourself snoring louder than your man! Try to use saline drops to alleviate some of the discomfort, or sleep with a humidifier at night. These are some all natural ways to alleviate those annoying cold symptoms.

Dark spots everywhere!

Along with those extra hormones, your body is also producing extra melanin. This extra melanin can produce dark spots on your face, nipples, everywhere really! They can range from barely noticeable to really dark. There really isn’t anything you can do to prevent this from happening. However, the good news is that it usually goes away right after giving birth, so you’ll only have to deal with it for a little while.

As you can see, there are a lot of pregnancy symptoms that you might not expect. Maybe now you will be better prepared for all of the freaky and unexpected things that pregnancy can throw your way! Best of luck, and remember, all these yucky and annoying symptoms are only temporary, and will seem well worth it when you meet your little bundle of joy!
