Ten Things That May Surprise You About Pregnancy

 Pregnancy Over 40, What Nobody Told You

Every woman is different and every pregnancy is different.  Of women who have more than one child, many will report an entirely different experience between on pregnancy and the next.
My site:
Here is an article which talks about some of the little known "side effects" of pregnancy.  I can't say I experienced everything in this article, but I would say I had the majority of them.It talks about some of the things you may not know about pregnancy. Read more:

Here are a few:

Nails, like hair, can change noticeably during pregnancy. Extra hormones can make them grow faster and become stronger. Some women, however, find that their nails tend to split and break more easily during pregnancy. Like the changes in hair, nail changes aren't permanent. If your nails split and tear more easily when you're pregnant, keep them trimmed and avoid the chemicals in nail polish and nail polish remover.

7. Shoe Size

Even though you can't fit into any of your prepregnancy clothes, you still have your shoes, right? Maybe — but maybe not. Because of the extra fluid in their pregnant bodies, many women experience swelling in their feet and may even have to start wearing a larger shoe size. Wearing slip-on shoes in a larger size will be more comfortable for many pregnant women, especially in the summer months.
8. Joint Mobility

During pregnancy, your body produces a hormone known as relaxin, which is believed to help prepare the pubic area and the cervix for the birth. The relaxin loosens the ligaments in your body, making you less stable and more prone to injury. It's easy to overstretch or strain yourself, especially the joints in your pelvis, lower back, and knees. When exercising or lifting objects, go slowly and avoid sudden, jerky movements.

Yeast Infections In Pregnancy

Pregnancy Over 40 and Yeast Infections

I had one quick bout of a yeast infection during my successful pregnancy.
My site:
Actually, contrary to most articles I've read (which make it sound like if you have a yeast infection, you'll have symptoms), I had no idea. There are so many things that go on with your body when you're pregnant, you may miss it. My doctor identified mine during a routine prenatal visit and told me how to treat it. Yeast infections can be very common in pregnancy because you have higher hormone levels which may promote the growth of yeast. Here is an article that explains more:

Yeast Infections During Pregnancy

From the article:

Yeast infections are a common type of vaginal infection that are particularly common in pregnant women. These infections — also called monilial vaginitis or vaginal candidiasis — are caused by microscopic fungi in the Candida family, most commonly Candida albicans.

It's not uncommon to have a certain amount of yeast in your vagina, as well as in your intestinal tract. Yeast only becomes a problem when it grows so fast that it overwhelms other competing microorganisms.
Your higher level of estrogen during pregnancy causes your vagina to produce more glycogen, making it even easier for yeast to grow there. Some researchers think estrogen may also have a direct effect on yeast, causing it to grow faster and stick more easily to the walls of the vagina
