You’ve read the books. Learned all there is to learn about pregnancy. You’re ready to go right, wrong. You can read up on everything possible, but you can plan for everything you will experience during the nine months of pregnancy. Here are 5 things you can’t prepare for during pregnancy.
A common issues during pregnancy whether you are fatigued or well-rested is the inability to concentrate or time frames where you experience forgetfulness. It can be over anything and everything including: where you put the keys, paying bills, appointments, and more. A common way used to combat this is to make lists.
Mood swings are a common thing to occur for pregnant women. Most frequently take place during the first trimester and during the end of the third trimester.
Pregnancy affects every woman differently. A common occurrence is the natural pregnancy glow. However, other women may develop chloasma patches on their face, acne, hyperpigmentation, or other skin related changes due to the increase in pigment and oil production.
Balance and Mobility Problems
During pregnancy, the body produces multiple hormones. One of these is known as relaxin – a hormone that is thought to help prepare the body for the birth. This hormone also relaxes the ligaments in your body, rendering the body more likely to obtain an injury. Be careful and don’t overextend yourself. Remember to move slowly and avoid abrupt, erratic, or rough movements.
Your Water May or May Not Break
Before contractions occur, only 1 out of every 10 mothers will experience their water breaking. In fact, some women never experience it and a doctor has to break the amniotic sac after they arrive at the hospital. Even how the water breaks can vary. Some women feel a rush of fluid while others only have a small trickling sensation down their leg.
