No two bodies are the same, and neither are two pregnancies. From the strange cravings to the peculiar body changes, each pregnancy has its our own quirks.

While pregnancy is truly such a beautiful journey, there are a few little unpleasant symptoms that may occur during gestation time. It's totally normal, your body is changing and growing a beautiful life after all!

Some people experience some of the strangest pregnancy symptoms while others barely experience any. You may be yet to experience some of the symptoms, so brace yourself. Or not, but it's good to know about the possibilities, right? 

I stumbled upon a Reddit post titled: "What are the pregnancy symptoms/quirks you have experienced, that you didn't know about before you became pregnant?" 

This user says that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome happens to be her "weird" symptom.
