Battled through second trimester

Another week has passed. I'll soon be entering the third trimester phase of my pregnancy. Among the changes I've experienced throughout the second trimester include
  1. congestion and nosebleeds. Good thing it is not to the extend of sinus symptom- just normal congestion and nosebleeds
  2. discharge. It makes me feel really uncomfortable. At time I gets really worried wondering if I have pee on my pants without me knowing. No kidding.
  3. frequent visit to the toilet. I will probably end up visiting the ladies 3 times after drinking only a cup of water. I will visit almost every toilet I pass by whenever I am out
  4. Heartburn- I almost thought I am LUCKY girl for not having to go through this whole gastric and heartburn battle after first trimester. Everything was "alright" until the final week of second trimester. I don't know what I've been doing wrong. I am still working on the best diet plan (basically changing my diet plan all over again). 
  5. Leg cramp- I've been experiencing severe leg cramp to the extend my whole body jumped and woke me up in middle of the night screaming out loud this two weeks. It is not an everyday event but still it hurts. I try doing very light yoga stretches to relax the muscle but it doesn't seem to help in curing that affected vein completely
Don't get me wrong. I am not complaining. The above symptom doesn't affect me much besides the leg cramp and heartburn. As much as I want to enjoy every moment of my pregnancy, I won't lie, it is not always easy. Basically I can never be prepared despite reading what to expect from different sources online. 

Oh well, I've still got a long way to go. There is no way I know what to expect over the next few months but I sure hope it will be a smooth sailing one. I will try to savour every moment of this pregnancy till the day I see her. As for now, I am happy enough looking back at the videos and also the photographs I've got from the 4D scan I did when I was 24 weeks pregnant.
