im 18+2 and im suffering with dead legs. it gets worse at night and when i am sitting.
the dr said i could take paracetamol but other than that there is nothing else i can do, it is just one of those 'pregnancy' things and it could get better or get worse and last until the time the baby is born!!!

I'm not saying any of you lovely ladies have this but have you heard of carpal tunnel syndrome. I know it causes pins and needles, numbness and burning in the hand, fingers, forearm and sometimes upper arm. Think i read that pregnancy can sometimes trigger this among other things as well . It's a fairly common condition. I know my mum ended up getting it in both her hands. Its caused by too much pressure on a nerve in the wrist

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
