5 Things they don’t tell you about Pregnancy
1. Milk product starts before the baby arrives – I remember being seven months pregnant with my first child. My sisters and I were bonding over a girly movie when all of a sudden I started to feel really hot. I kept pulling at my shirt, thinking “Geez I’m sweating like crazy!” when all of a sudden, my sisters started bursting out laughing. There I stood with two huge wet spots. What I thought was sweat, turned out to be the beginning of my milk production.
2. Skin Tags – During pregnancy, it is normal for things to grow, your stomach, your ankles (or should I say Kankles), your feet, and chest. Your body is basically going nuts thanks to the little person developing in your belly. One thing you may not have thought about growing during pregnancy is your skin. Skin tags are delightful little skin growth that occur in high friction areas like your armpits, neck and under your breasts.
5. Hemmroids – The last ‘joy’ of pregnancy that no one tells you about is a huge PAIN IN THE BUTT (literally!) known as Hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are a topic that everyone is embarrassed or fearful to discuss but it is a problem that can affect up to 50% of pregnant women! Hemorrhoids are swollen or inflamed veins in your lower rectum and anus. Then tend to be caused by your growing uterus and increase in blood flow. Things like constipation and delivery are two common causes. They can range from itchy and annoying to downright painful. Sometimes they resolve themselves after pregnancy or with increased hydration and fiber, but others need outside help like HemoClin.
