Getting Cheeky About Pregnancy- The gift of #ahhh with the #HemoclinComfortKit giveaway
Pregnancy can be a beautiful time in a woman’s life. There are so many different awesome things happening in your body! I loved having a pregnant belly, I felt like I was truly beautiful while I was pregnant, but let’s just be honest here…
I am about to bare it all, no buts about it. I have IBS. I have been pregnant, twice. In fact, my daughter was 10lbs when she was born and she had been putting A LOT of pressure on my body both inside and out. I have to admit there are some things about pregnancy that can be quite a “bummer.” So, what am I talking about? Well, if you must know.. (WHICH YOU MUST.) I am talking about hemorrhoids. I have had them. In fact, many women have, just not many want to talk about their nether regions being less than perfect.
Hey, it happens! I am perfectly comfortable telling you that while carrying my 10 pound daughter around in my belly, my body started protesting. One morning I woke up and realized… Hemorrhoids!
DID YOU KNOW?
Hemorrhoids are actually a very common part of pregnancy! No, not everyone gets them but if your tushy feels a little strange, there are ways to deal with it. You don’t have to be me and tell the world either.
What are They!?
If you are not sure what Hemorrhoids are, I am about to tell you. Hemorrhoids are veins around the anus or rectum that become inflamed or swollen. Symptoms of Hemorrhoids can be different for people but generally they can be itchy, painful, and just plain uncomfortable.

the leg pains were really shocking and kept me up at night
For Sherri I think she wasn’t expecting to feel so good. If you know what I mean….Randy.
My unexpected pregnancy symptom was daily heartburn.
I love the honesty in your post! Truly, moms don’t need to keep things hush hush all the time. I think that it helps when moms know they are not alone. I’ve never experienced that issue before, but know moms who have. Thanks for sharing this!
I was actually crazy itchy on my belly with my second child, drove me batty the whole pregnancy!
My most unexpected pregnancy symptom was heartburn! In fact, I had never experienced heartburn in my life until I was 6 months pregnant with my first daughter at age 21. I thought I was having a heart attack until I explained the symptoms to my husband and he suggested it was heartburn. Doh!
I didnt have anything unexpected, but I didnt have all the normal symptoms.
Feeling nauseous when the smell of food cooking was unexpected.
Heartburn, nausea to any vanilla scent and of course hemroids which I still can’t get rid of
very sensitive to smells! A lot of things gross me out.
I’ve never been pregnant I am trying to win for a friend of mine who is.
I remember her nightmares. Vivid and often.
The twitching, I had restless leg syndrome a lot.
I had an incredible sensitivity to smells. I had no idea that this happened when you were pregnant. So many smells disgusted me or were so strong they would make me feel sick.
I suddenly could not drink coffee. Even now, 20 years later, if I drink it I get sick.
I’ve never had kids but I wouldn’t look forward to the nausea that could last all through the pregnancy like it did for my mom when she was expecting me.
craving anything peanut butter!! i mean i always liked it but i was obsessed and still have cravings for it 8 months after having my daughter
I had heartburn during both my pregnancies and had never had if before and it just disappeared after the child was born.
unexpected leg muscle cramps. thanks
Certain favorite foods would give me upset stomach.
I have never been pregnant but my friend is and right now she is dealing with both hemorrhoids and really bad acid reflux.
Heartburn, and the inability to look or smell chicken.
My me it was morning sickness and heartburn.
I had heartburn constantly for 5 months. So never expected that
Most did not surprise me but the ones which did were:
hypersensitive belly button
and “throat snot’… weeks after jr was born I coughed up a rope of mucous which was several feet long. Are you glad you asked?
I was surprised at how much my ankles swelled.
The cravings! (Suzi)
alot of morning sickness
My hollow leg! lol bottomless stomach, always eating!
Heartburn for sure, I had never had it a day in my life until I get pregnant, It was horrific !!
Hating the random leg cramps in the middle of the night.
Couldn’t drive for two months after caesarean
I expected morning sickness but not to be hospitalized for almost 5 months.
Pregnany insomnia! I was awake from 2am to 5am everynight…it was brutal!
Acid Reflux. It was worse than I had expected
I was surprised to have such bad heartburn
Im not a mom, but I was surprised at friends new and sudden food aversions
I had leg cramps bad at nighttime,that was unexpected!
All day morning sickness.
The enhanced super-sense of smell which unfortunately led to a LOT of stomach churning & vomiting!
swollen feet, not just morning sickness but food aversions, and charlie horse cramps in my legs that were so bad they would wake me up and the pain would stick around for days afterwards
It was heartburn for me
Really dry skin!
Mine was incredible heartburn like I had never experienced before
For my wife it was heartburn.
Charlie Horses, OMG I thought I was going to go crazy! With my 1st I got them 4-5 NIGHTS a week once I hit the mid mark .. until the end. I had to keep a broom on the floor beside my bed to step on when they happen to ease them…
the swollen feet were bad but this was in the hottest part of summer
I guess this is a symptom of pregnancy – was with my sister – perhaps a genetic thing. Itchiness – arms & neck & back…constant nuisance. Lasted short-term but was prevalent for the first 2 months.
the hightened smells … everything was that much stronger and some smells not so good
My friend did not expect the morning morning sickness or swollen feet during her pregnancy
I was sick , a lot , morning sickness is really day and night !
The heartburn and how severe it could get, and how little things would make me sick to my stomach which otherwise wouldn’t
First three kids it was anxiety that would keep me up for days and I went nuts. Serious mental breaks with the first 3 🙁
My most unexpected symptom was a lot of pain in my hips, to the point where I couldn’t bend over toward the end of my pregnancies
All day morning sickness for 7 months then the unbearable heartburn which felt like a heart attack at times. It was awful but SO worth it! 🙂
the amount of weight i put on
Heartburn was really harsh with my first, my second was extremely swollen legs and feet and I couldn’t sleep
What was most unexpected for me was the heartburn. I knew it was common but I didn’t know just how severe it could be.
The muscle spasms in my legs, I would wake up in the middle of the night in so much pain
Heartburn and nausea
lots of heartburn!
leg cramps and heartburn were just brutal.
Hair loss was not expected.
Preparing certain foods made me feel nauseous. Including salad…which was weird.
I had terrible leg cramps that required regular massaging by my hubby so I could survive the pain.
I had a terrible craving for sweet marie bars
Intense cravings – there was a strawberry shortage when I worked at the grocery store and when I couldn’t get fresh ones right then I cried at work!
The horrible feet swelling! My feet grew 1 size larger!
leg cramps during the night
The hand cramping and swelling, which sucked b/c I did data entry at the time.
For me the most unexpected symptom was the chronic fatigue when I was pregnant.
i had bad mornign sickness
The severity of morning sickness is most surprising.
my wife developed bad heartburn and cankles
It was nausea
The REALLY severe heartburn 🙁
I didn’t expect weird cravings like ONIONS! ick!!
Other than hemmorhoids, morning sickness and heartburn?? What about that “line” on my belly that runs down from my belly button to you know where?! 🙂
I had an EXTREMELY itchy stomach.. soooo strange.
Hemmorrhoids. I also couldn’t stand stir fry. Just the look and smell of it would make me vomit.
My heartburn was completely unexpected.
The most unexepected thing was when my belly button popped out ( herniated) that was no fun . I had to surgery for that after I had my son
I guess it wasnt really a “symptom” but being pregnant with my daughter trigured gall bladder attacks and it made my pregnancy hell.
I’ve never been pregnant, i am trying to win this for my friend who is currently 5 months pregnant, she is experiencing lots of heartburn’s.
I had never had heartburn before so it was a big surprise when it was so bad, I had to sleep sitting up.
The cravings were not what I expected. Corn Flakes, by the handful–no milk or anything. I couldn’t get enough!
very swollen ankles
I had extreme morning sickness to the smell of coffee. Unfortunately at work, my desk was close to the coffee maker.
My hands and feet were very swollen.
Heartburn is probably one of the worst one.
I couldn’t believe how sore my feet were after being on my feet for a long period of time
