1st Trimester

Body aches?

I'm 8w today and keep waking up in the middle of the night from body aches. My joints, legs and arms are always achy - it almost feels like the flu, without all the other symptoms...is anyone else experiencing this? It makes it so difficult for me to get any rest. :-/

    Sorry to break it to you but it will get worse as you get closer to the middle and end of your pregnancy. But yes I had this a couple times during my 1st Trimester. I found a warm bath / shower helped

    I had terrible aches with my first and they are back again with my current pregnancy only SOONER! Lol

    Prenatal yoga helped a lot and walking /stretching when they came on. Warm showers too! Also regular chiro appointments helped as well.

    Hope you start to feel better soon! 
  • Yes. This is exactly how I feel. I don't remember this from my first pregnancy. 
  • Yes it happens to me too... especially after working too much around the house or stand for a long time.
