- I get nose block that disturb my sleep.
- I get very bad lower back pain that sometimes getting up is such a task.
- I get severe headache that lasts for days.
- I get so tired that I could just doze off, even though I had enough sleep.
Some people said I am lucky I did not have morning sickness. Maybe yes, but I believe those other problems would have fully compensated the commonly suffered morning sickness.
Then when I was 4-5 months, I went travelling. They say this is the safest time (the 2nd trimester). But I had dizzy spells. It came like a whirlwind of hot air from bottom of my feet and shot up to my head in a nick of time. My knees buckled and I automatically lost balance. Never had this kind of feeling before. Real scary experience.
The second time I felt that dizziness coming, I tried to take deep breath as I thought oxygen should help. The moment I drew in my breath, I almost lost consciousness. Scared me the second time.
Luckily, I didn't suffer that again thereafter. I supposed it is the wind in my body that makes me nauseous and dizzy. But I was really thankful, Aunty Har was there beside me when it happened. Or else I would have fell from the stairs. Bless her!
