Most of my pregnancy symptoms are normal. (Also, mild. Another post on that later.) BUT, there are a couple things that are just downright weird. I had these symptoms with Kalena but thought maybe I was just crazy and it was all in my head. Turns out not so much, because they are both back.
The first is: when I’m pregnant I develop a mild allergy to onion. Yep, when I’m pregnant (and only when I’m pregnant) eating raw onions causes my lips and tongue to get all tingly and a little numb. It’s nothing that keeps me from eating onion, but it is a little strange.
The second is: my hands fall asleep ALL THE TIME. This one at least makes sense; I’m sure it’s related to increased blood volume during pregnancy, but still, it’s a little much. For instance, working on a stitchery causes one and sometimes BOTH my hands to fall asleep. Even though one of them is moving! Spending more than 10 minutes or so online (if I’m scrolling a lot) makes my scrolling fingers fall asleep. If I sleep with one hand under my pillow it will be SO asleep when I wake up that I can’t even move my fingers.
I wonder if I’ll have these with every pregnancy. Anybody else have any crazy pregnancy things?
