I have recently been made aware of a few weird things about pregnancy.
- There’s a mucus plug that blocks the cervix. This adds an extra layer of protection for the baby.
- Stretch marks can appear overnight.
- Dizziness can happen very suddenly. Always have protein within arms reach, and go sit down.
- Blood volume increases by 50% while pregnant. This causes the body to be warmer than normal, and can cause “the glow”. It also burns more energy (see number 3), and can cause swelling in extremities.
The stretch goal questions have been sent to the publisher, and will be edited by professionals soon. Keep an eye open for updates – the pre-order should be available soon!
