Is Pregnancy Changes You?

People say pregnancy is a fun and exciting time. Probably they are right, but don't you think that behind the fun and excitement, you also feel the changes in your body. Any woman who has ever been pregnant knows that changes come with the nine months as the "Baby Carrier."

What Are Those Changes?

Naturally, our bodies change. Our boobs get bigger, our tummies expand and our taste buds become fickle, taking us on a whirlwind from one craving to the next. A once slender woman can morph into what seems like a monster.

Of course, morning sickness, which can happen at anytime during the day, is also a new change for expectant moms. Foods and even smells we once loved can send us into a hurl on a second's notice. On top of that, we get to enjoy sweating like piglets, pimple outbreaks, exhaustion and sore feet and backs.

And then there are the emotional and mental changes. You've got to start getting into the Mom Mindset, so you tend to become more protective of others. See your husband using a knife that looks too sharp? Better run over and cut that tomato yourself! Or, have you noticed a stray dog in the neighborhood? No time like now to practice up on your care-giving skills - you should definitely make a trip to the grocery store for some Purina.

Indeed, we women take our roles as mothers seriously - sometimes too seriously. And we can find ourselves snapping at our loved ones for little infractions and even working ourselves into tearful outbursts over anything from a sad movie to a dirty rug during our pregnancies.

But doesn't anybody dare tell a pregnant woman that she's being irrational. Mood swings - sometimes within minutes - are totally normal. A pregnant woman's body is going through hormonal changes, and spouses and others are well-advised to not taking anything personally.
