1. Heartburn
Heartburn is caused by hormonal and physical changes that your body undergoes during pregnancy.

2. Constipation

Most pregnant women become constipated due to the hormonal changes that make your digestion much slower, as your baby starts to grow; there will be less space for your digestive system to function at its best.

3. Morning Sickness

Morning sickness is one of the early pregnancy problems and is something that, ironically enough, can happen at any time of the day and for some unfortunate women, can carry on throughout the pregnancy. The symptoms include nausea and vomiting.

4. Bleeding Gums

Bleeding gums are caused by the same hormone that makes your mucus membrane swell up and makes your sinuses worse.

5. Insomnia

With all bloating, leg cramps and constant need to pee, it’s no wonder that pregnant women have trouble sleeping. Around 8 out of 10 women experience insomnia during pregnancy.

6. Headache and Migraine

Hormonal changes during pregnancy causes a lot of unnecessary problems for you, but in the case of migraines, it is not just hormonal changes but also a combination of many other factors that contribute to it. For example, if you are overly stressed and are not eating and sleeping properly, you are more likely to develop migraines.

7. Vaginal Discharge

Vaginal discharge during pregnancy is considered to be completely normal and is called Leukorrhea. It is one of the first visual signs of pregnancy. This discharge is white, thin and milky and it has a very mild smell.

8. Urinary Incontinence

If you have been peeing a little without meaning to, join the pregnancy club. The type of urinary incontinence experienced by pregnant women is usually Stress Incontinence, something that is caused due to increased pressure on the bladder. This especially causes a lot of pregnancy discomfort at 35 weeks.

9. Stretch Marks

These are caused by changes in the elastic supportive tissue that lies right under the skin. At first they are reddish brown, purple or dark brown but later they fade away to faint pale marks.

10. Leg Cramps

Nobody is really sure why leg cramps are caused. Some speculate that they are caused because of the extra weight you have to carry, while there are other theories that they are caused due to the compression of the blood vessels in the legs. These troublesome cramps most often happen at night and make sleeping quite difficult.

11. High Blood Pressure

Otherwise known as hypertension, this is a serious problem for some women. While it is not very serious in most cases, there are times when it causes more serious health problems for mother and child.

12. Skin Changes

All the hormonal changes that pregnancy causes lead to acne and skin darkening. Some women develop dark circles around the eyes during their pregnancy.

13. Haemorrhoids

Swollen blood vessels in the rectum are called haemorrhoids and can be as small as a pea or as big as a grape. They are very uncomfortable to have and can sometimes be very painful, sometimes even bleeding as you have a bowel movement.

14. Backpain/Backache

With all the extra weight and the shift in your center of gravity, your muscles have to work harder and your joints experience more pressure during pregnancy. These things cause backaches. Backaches can also be caused when there is pressure on your nerves.

15. Itchy and Leaking Nipples

Your growing breasts are what cause the itching sensation, whereas the leaky breasts are caused by prolactin, a hormone that readies your body for nursing. Anything from showering to changing your clothes can cause those unwanted leaks.

16. Swelling

Also called Edema, this is caused due to the excess fluids that get stuck in your tissues. As you retain more water during pregnancy, swelling is pretty common. The growing uterus puts pressure on the vena cava and this causes the blood flow back to the legs to be slow, thereby causing the swelling.

17. Lack of Energy and Fatigue

Fatigue experienced by those in their first trimester is caused due to hormonal changes, whereas the fatigue in the third is caused because of the extra weight you have to carry as well as all the sleepless nights caused by other pregnancy problems.

18. Breathing Problems

The hormonal changes, especially progesterone, directly affect your lungs. In the later stages of pregnancy, your breathing may become even more laboured as the growing uterus puts pressure on the diaphragm causing discomfort during pregnancy.

19. Itching

Mild itching is completely normal during pregnancy. All the stretching and hormonal changes will cause this in at least twenty per cent of pregnant women.

20. Indigestion

Though some lucky few are spared this during the first trimester, it will inevitably show up during the second or third trimesters. It is caused due to hormonal changes and the weight of the baby growing and putting more weight on the intestines. It is one of the biggest contributors to pregnancy discomfort.

21. Weird and Strange Dreams

Strange dreams are common and considered normal. They tend to happen because of the anxieties you may be experiencing due to your upcoming motherhood.
