Some women are like "I love being pregnant!' and how they maintain that positive attitude is beyond me. Here are some basics symptoms, remember it does widely vary.
Weight gain (which I am always reminded is GOOD in this situation) ;-)
All day sickness
Swelling of joints

Pregnancy Brain (you basically forget everything)
You can't bend well
You can't get up
Taste bud change

Sudden mood changes
Swelling of breasts
Swelling of abdomen
