Did you know your stomach muscles separate?

This means no crunch type abdominal exercises after four months of pregnancy. However it is crucial to do deep abdominal work as well as pelvic floor exercises in order to support your growing baby and your back. This will help you bounce back in shape post baby.

Are you thinking differently lately?

As if changing your body changing wasnt enough... now your brain changes a little too but not permanently.

 

Scientists at the University of London recently confirmed findings that women’s brains change during pregnancy to become more active on the right (creative) side. They believe this is part of a neurological preparation to help mothers bond with their new-born babies.

Share your craving with us.

Have you ever experienced a weird craving?

Is everyone suddenly pregnant?

No, it's called the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon, which can make you feel overwhelmed by baby bumps everywhere you look.

It may seem as if there’s been a pregnancy boom because everywhere you look you see bumps, but that’s just what scientists call the frequency illusion. Much like when you’re looking to buy a specific model car you begin noticing that car everywhere you drive, when you’re pregnant you’ll see bumps everywhere you go. You’re just more observant.

Invest in bras.

When you’re pregnant, you’ll have hormones flying around all over the place which, amongst other things, has a big impact on your boobs. In fact, they only complete their full development when you’ve experienced pregnancy.

 

Your boobs are going to grow by one, maybe even two or three cup sizes while you’re pregnant. Invest in bras.

Beware of Swollen Gums during Pregnancy

Your gums are more likely to become inflamed during pregnancy because hormones make them more sensitive to the bacteria in plaque. The cause is a mild form of gum disease known as pregnancy gingivitis.

The same hormone affects the gums in your mouth, so swelling of the gums may cause bleeding when you brush. Be sure to visit the dentist during pregnancy.

Need a tissue mom?

Dont worry! You're not sick... it is pretty common to have a runny or stuffed-up nose during pregnancy. Up to 30 percent of pregnant women have congestion without any other symptoms of a cold... What you're experiencing is actually named rhinitis of pregnancy.

Your body produces more mucus, which can result in a stuffy nose, sinusitis, and headaches. The hormone progesterone also causes swelling of the mucosa of the nasal passages and causes your nose to bleed and difficulty breathing.

Wow mom, that smells awesome!

It used to be that scientists believed fetuses had about as much of a sense of smell as they had a sense of fashion; that's because smelling typically depends on such basics as air and breathing. Now, though, it's believed that amniotic fluid jets though the nasal and oral cavities to actually help a fetus smell. That ability starts at about 30 weeks; before that time, tissues plug up the nasal cavities.

 

Research shows that babies begin smelling strong odours from around 28 weeks. In fact, the amniotic fluid is thought to enhance your baby’s sense of smell because odours are more intense when joined with a liquid.

40 Winks for 40 Weeks!

A study by the National Sleep Foundation found that more than half of pregnant women take at least one nap during the workweek, and 60 percent take at least one weekend nap.

It’s tempting to take a long nap to catch up on sleep, but various studies show day time naps of more than 20 to 30 minutes can make you feel more tired. Keep naps short and sweet.
