Two side effects that threw me for a loop:
1. itchy hands. Had no idea about this. It was miserable. I would wake up and want to go outside and scrape my hands across the bricks on my house. No joke. My doctor said this is actually fairly common. I would spread Cortaid on them and it helped a little. But still, they itched. As soon as I gave birth, it was completely gone. Weird.
2. Oh my oh my, heart burn. I've had heart burn before. Everyone has. But during my 8th and 9th month of pregnancy, I've never experienced anything like that. I could hardly eat because my stomach was so compacted, I'd vomit if I ate more than a few bites. And every tie I ate or drank, the burning. It was unbelievable. I would eat a small bowl of grapes every night because it had liquid in them and was also food. That's all I could handle. And I like to eat . . . so that was a big deal. But if I drank a glass of water like I wanted to? I would never sleep due to the heart burn. Tums were my best friend but they really didn't help all that much. Good times.
Throwing up all the time it horrible!!!!!no appetite and heartburn burn like crazy!!! I lost 20 pounds from the vomiting I hate it but I’m finally starting to feel a little better at 19 weeks!!!
