Week 39 Update of Pregnancy

Weird Pregnancy Symptoms: 1) Menstrual-like cramps coupled with morning nausea Its not so much “morning sickness” nausea, but moreso menstrual-like nausea with menstrual-like cramps.  If you’re a guy, its kind of hard to describe.

Week 38 Update of Pregnancy

Weird Pregnancy Symptoms: 1) Menstrual-like cramps Its not so much a “tugging” sensation so much as an internal rumbly rumbly that is almost like indigestion but its not!

Week 33 of Pregnancy

Weird Pregnancy Symptoms:  1) Waddling I’ve been teeter-tottering on this for a while (pun intended) and now its finally evident that I have a consistent waddle.

Week 32 Update of Pregnancy

Weird Pregnancy Symptoms:  1) Fatigue While I’ve been able to sleep during the night without a hitch (save for my nightly trip to the bathroom), I’ve been waking up still tired.
