The ability to create life is a blessing and nothing short of miraculous. Whether it is a woman's first time or she's gone through it before, being pregnant is not for the faint of heart, as it brings about many changes that are not always wanted or expected. To be ready for them, or at least be better prepared, here is a list of disgusting things that pregnancy does to the body.
Say Hello To Nausea
For many women, the first trimester is often the hardest because it can be hard to keep any food down. Said to be caused by increased levels of hCG or possibly even increased levels of estrogen, nausea can hit every time a woman turns around, not just during the morning as some might claim. This can be really problematic because the baby needs food (and so does Mommy) to continue on. Stock up on saltines, a good prenatal and pregnancy multivitamin, and lots of water and unsweetened fruit juice. They are going to come in handy. Alternately, talk to the doctor to find out what can be taken to help keep the food down.
