I’m not feeling too well today, so I thought I’d quickly say “Hello” While I’m eating a very late lunch! Unfortunately, I don’t have much to tell you today so I’m going to leave you with a few facts about pregnancy that I find interesting, weird or even just completely BIZARR.

1. Pregnant for 9 Months, not necessarily! In most cases Full-Term pregnancy normally means 9 months. But there are cases where women have been pregnant for a year. The world’s longest pregnancy was 375 days!

2. Glowing is not due to excitement! Most people relate the glow of a pregnant woman back to her excitement of being a mummy. However, it turns out that there’s more to it than that. While pregnant, the woman’s blood level increases by 50%, so the extra blood ends up showing through the skin in many parts of the body especially the cheeks.

3. Relying on your due-date? Well consider this, only less the 10% of babies are born on their exact due date, 50% of babies are born with a week of their due-date and 90% of the babies are born within two weeks of their due dates.

4. Happy with your shoes size?  Most pregnant women’s feet don’t get any longer or wider but they still may grow up half a size due to increased fluid levels.

5. 500 times to its normal size, the average woman’s uterus expands during pregnancy!

Now, what do you think of these facts and do you know any other weird facts? If share them with us, leave them in the comment box.
