Common pregnancy symptoms
You may experience a number of symptoms during pregnancy. Most of these are normal and will not harm you or your baby, but if they are severe or you are worried about them, speak to your midwife or doctor. You may feel some tiredness, sickness, headaches or other mild aches and pains, or have heartburn, constipation or haemorrhoids. There may also be some mild swelling of the face, hands or ankles, or varicose veins in the latter stages of pregnancy.
