When a person is pregnant the toll it puts on your body in vast. Hormones change, bodily fluid levels change, people become anemic from change of blood, veins swell because of the extra blood needed for baby. Hair can fall out, teeth become weak, skin changes, people become alergic to things they weren't before. Bathroom habits changes, and people become cranky and tired and think they need to eat more. In reality, they just need to eat healthy and not for two because that's an old wifes tale. The more weight people put on during pregnancy the harder it is to take off afterward. More ailments could be headaches, nausea, dry mouth, bad breath and not to mention the fact that two DNA's are now mixing together to form a new life. Go to your local library and get a book on pregnancy. I'm sure there is even more than this.
