This is one of the greatest miracles and mysteries of nature - pregnancy and the birth of a new man. How much we live, so much and we continue to learn new things about it.
1. The heart of a pregnant woman is getting bigger.
And this is not just a metaphor, the heart literally grows, it starts to beat and pump more blood - now for two (and maybe more).
2. Leg can grow to a full size.
Sometimes, pregnant women have to change not only clothes, but also shoes. The reason for this - the accumulation of fluid in the body, swelling. True, in some women, after pregnancy, nothing changes, the previous size does not come back.
3. The uterus is increased 500 times.
Before pregnancy, the woman's uterus is about the size of a small peach, at 9 months - the size of a watermelon, and after giving birth - it returns to the size before pregnancy.
4. A pregnant woman can produce milk at the sound of a crying baby.
This is all due to hormones and it is quite logical to soothe your child. But the same reaction can be even at the stage of pregnancy and as a reaction to the crying of even someone else’s child.
five.Severe exacerbation of smell.
Due to the increase in the body's hormone estrogen level, this is one of the first signs of pregnancy.
6. During pregnancy, the woman's body creates a completely new body.
Everyone knows about the placenta - this is a nutritional bag that provides the baby with everything necessary. But not everyone is aware that the placenta is a completely new organ that creates the female body. It is like growing a new kid - fantastic!
7. The woman's pelvis after pregnancy will never be the same.
With motherhood, a woman has a lot of things changing dramatically, and the biggest changes occur in the hip bones. During pregnancy, they slowly move apart by about 9 mm - to facilitate gestation and to provide the baby with more space. But after giving birth, they do not return to the place - so that the hips of the woman become even millimeters, but more.
8. Pregnant literally blooms.
A huge amount of estrogen during pregnancy contributes not only to the development of the child, but also strengthens the hair, nails, improves the condition of the skin, which literally shines. However, after pregnancy, all this changes dramatically in the opposite direction.
9.Pregnant women have a great stretch.
All thanks to the production of the hormone relaxin, which helps to relax the joints and stretch the muscles, which is very useful especially in the last months of pregnancy.
