Strange pregnancy symptoms. Are mine normal?

During your pregnancy, you will find that the sudden surge in hormones that your body produces cause some strange changes in your body. Breast pain, morning sickness, and mood swings are just some of the more common ones.

Some women find that the increase in hormones create a whole lot of other strange symptoms, like excess sweating, fatigue, changes in your hair and skin, changes to the hair on your head and body, and changes to your vision and sinuses
In short, just about everything that can possibly change during pregnancy just might, thanks to your hormones.

The good news is that those same hormones that are causing all the chaos are also making it possible for you to carry your baby, and give birth, and that all those strange symptoms will disappear gradually after your baby arrives. Also, remember that not all women experience all the side effects of an increase in hormones, and that you may have only some of the symptoms we’ve mentioned. If anything is particularly worrying, speak to your doctor. He or she will either be able to allay your fears, or help you to find a solution.
