12 Amazing Facts About Your Pregnant Body

By Devan McGuinness |

When you really think about it, pregnancy is a wildly incredible thing. Take away the emotions behind the experience and look at it purely from a nature perspective and it only seems even more amazing.

A few cells come together and seem to know exactly what to do. They grow, divide, and eventually grow into a small human. A perfect combination of you and your partner and it all seems pretty automatic to your body.

Pretty wild, right? I still can’t really wrap my head around all the changes that happen and I’ve been around the pregnant block a few times. As you know, I love interesting facts about things so while researching, I came across some pretty amazing facts about what really goes on in the pregnant body.

    Yes it indeed does but it can go back with a little bit of work. If you eat normally and do some mild exercise it should not take that long. To avoid stretch marks I used palmers coco butter oil everyday and it totally worked! I think that a woman’s body becomes even more beautiful after having a baby and luckily most men do too!
