Itching;
About 20 percent of pregnant women feel itchy during pregnancy. Usually women feel itchy in the abdomen. But red, itchy palms and soles of the feet are also common complaints. Pregnancy hormones and stretching skin are probably to blame for most of your discomfort. Usually the itchy feeling goes away after delivery. :x :?: :oops:

Leg cramps:
At different times during your pregnancy, you might have sudden muscle spasms in your legs or feet. They usually occur at night. This is due to a change in the way your body processes calcium. :!: :roll: :?:

Morning sickness:
In the first trimester hormone changes can cause nausea and vomiting. This is called "morning sickness," although it can occur at any time of day. Morning sickness usually tapers off by the second trimester. :ugeek: :ugeek: :ugeek:

Eat several small meals instead of three large meals to keep your stomach from being empty.
Don't lie down after meals.
Eat dry toast, saltines, or dry cereals before getting out of bed in the morning.
Eat bland foods that are low in fat and easy to digest, such as cereal, rice, and bananas.
Sip on water, weak tea, or clear soft drinks. Or eat ice chips.
Avoid smells that upset your stomach.
Call the doctor if:
You have flu-like symptoms, which may signal a more serious condition.
You have severe, constant nausea and/or vomiting several times every day. :roll: :lol: :D

Nosebleeds and nasal stuffiness are common during pregnancy. They are caused by the increased amount of blood in your body and hormones acting on the tissues of your nose. :| :| :| :|

Feelings of swelling, tingling, and numbness in fingers and hands, called carpal tunnel syndrome, can occur during pregnancy. These symptoms are due to swelling of tissues in the narrow passages in your wrists, and they should disappear after delivery. :)

Stretch marks, skin changes; During pregnancy, you might have:
Stretch marks are red, pink, or brown streaks on the skin. Most often they appear on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and breasts. These scars are caused by the stretching of the skin, and usually appear in the second half of pregnancy. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Some women notice other skin changes during pregnancy. For many women, the nipples become darker and browner during pregnancy. Many pregnant women also develop a dark line (called the linea nigra) on the skin that runs from the belly button down to the pubic hairline. :? 8-) :?

Patches of darker skin usually over the cheeks, forehead, nose, or upper lip also are common. Patches often match on both sides of the face. These spots are called melasma or chloasma and are more common in darker-skinned women. :roll: :roll:
