14 Weird Pregnancy Facts

So let’s start off with the fact that pregnancy in general is a weird and exciting experience to go through. Isn’t it crazy to think that you’re growing another human being inside you? Mind blowing right? There’s this living creature inside of you moving around which is another crazy experience. I’ve heard people explaining what it supposedly feels like to have a baby move inside you when you really won’t understand until it’s actually happening to you. There are many more things you could possibly experience while being pregnant however, I only touched on a few.

1) When you get to be at about four months pregnant your little, innocent, baby begins urinating inside you! On average, your baby urinates at about a liter a day. Weird right? Oh it gets better! Your little one actually drinks the urine they are excreting!

2) At the end of your pregnancy, your placenta will produce the same amount of estrogen that a non-pregnant woman produces in three years’ time!

3) The longest pregnancy that resulted in a live birth belongs to Beulah Hunter which was 375 days. Nine months is long enough, can you imagine over a year of having that big belly and heartburn?

4) Your heart actually get’s bigger during pregnancy! According to Live Strong, the size of your heart and its position changes during pregnancy. Your uterus expands thus pushing the diaphragm upwards which then pushes the heart farther into the chest cavity. It will increase by about a total of 12% during pregnancy.

5) One in every 2000 babies is born with teeth. These teeth are called Natal teeth and are extremely rare, as you can see by the numbers. Most of the time these Natal teeth have just come earlier in life when their usual schedule doesn’t make an appearance until later on when they receive their baby teeth. So far, there is no known cause for this condition but studies show that there are hereditary links. If a baby is born with teeth and they are not loose in any way then there is no need to remove them because it is not considered a choking hazard unless another reason to remove them becomes evident. Another reason that these teeth might be pulled would be if they are very sharp because they would cause a lot of discomfort to the nursing mother. How scary would it be trying to breast feed a baby with teeth? Ouch!

6) Having a lot of heartburn during your pregnancy? Well it looks like your baby will be born with a full head of hair. Yes ladies, this is TRUE. According to CBS News, a study was done at Johns Hopkins which was published in the journal Birth stating that there is some type of correlation between heartburn and a child being born with hair.

7) Ever heard of having «pregnancy brain»? Well apparently it’s due to the fact that women have less oxygen in their blood which causes this phenomenon. «There is 15 to 40 times more progesterone and estrogen marinating the brain during pregnancy,» says Louann Brizendine, MD. Another factor that supposedly causes «pregnancy brain» is a lack of sleep. No one thinks clearly or functions normally when their going through some sort of sleep deprivation. Bad news is ladies that this fogginess could last up to a year after giving birth! No one can blame you for forgetting things now, it’s a pregnancy thing!

8) If you’re having a little baby girl she develops all of her reproductive eggs that she will ever use in utero whereas little boys don’t develop sperm until they reach puberty years later.

9) Did you know you can actually share your pregnancy symptoms with your spouse or significant other? It’s a term that’s called Couvade Syndrome which is also known as sympathetic pregnancy. This is actually a type of condition where the father-to-be will have similar experiences to you in the sense of some aches and pains along with those crazy dreams that come along with pregnancy. Is your spouse gaining some weight right along with you and having those never ending back pains? Then most likely they are suffering from this condition.

10) Babies can actually cry while their in the womb. This can start as early as the 28th week of gestation. They don’t make any kind of crying noises just yet but they silently cry which makes us want to cry right along with them! There was a study done that recorded ultrasounds of fetuses during the third trimester in which they startled the baby with a low decibel noise against the mother’s stomach which caused the baby to display traditional crying behavior. Such behavior consisted of opening their mouths and gasping irregularly. Makes sense that this can happen though right? I mean, it is rather dark and scary in there.

11) Nipple stimulation is the only scientifically proven method of legitimately bringing on labor. So eating pineapple and spicy food is really unnecessary because that’s not going to cause you to go into labor. Nipple stimulation actually releases oxytocin which is a hormone that causes contractions to start. This hormone also helps your labor to progress. Now don’t think that by doing this that it’s a sure fire way to kick start those contractions into gear, this can only work if your body is primed and ready for labor to actually start.

12) More twins are born in Central Africa then anywhere else in the world. According to Livescience, the central African country of Benin, has the highest average of twin birth rates with 27.9 twins per 1,000 births.

13) A woman’s uterus expands to more than 500 times its normal size over her entire pregnancy! During the third trimester, a woman’s uterus gets to be the size of a watermelon! The human body is truly an amazing thing.

14) Your little fetus can actually get erections in the womb. As parents, thinking about your young child getting aroused isn’t the kind of thoughts we want to have however, these little babies have been caught being aroused during ultrasounds.

As I said previously, there are so many other symptoms that can happen during pregnancy and these are just a few of the weirdest that I found interesting. None of these symptoms put your baby at risk for anything or endangers him or her in any way. These are just some interesting facts that occur thanks to good ol’ Mother Nature. Pregnancy is a mysterious and magical experience that makes you come to appreciate all that the human body is capable of doing to keep your little fetus safe, secure, and growing strong.

Manchester – Gay Capital of The UK

Manchester's Gay Village, which is centered around Canal Street, close to the Chinese center, has just about recovered from being featured in the popular BBC series 'Queer as Folk' when it became the destination of hen and stag nights, giving it almost a zoo like status. The reason it was chosen as the location, is that it has been around for quite a while and is a the gay party capital of the UK. There are so many clubs and pubs that there is very little room for anything else. If the canal were to freeze over, they would build at least 3 clubs on the ice.

Canal Street was a once prosperous site, situated alongside the Rochdale Canal, but when rail and then road took over as the preferred method of transport, it became a dark and run down area. Given that homosexuality was illegal until the late 60's and then only legal in private if you were over 21 years old, it became a surreptitious area for cruising. Some say that it was first a big lesbian area. The Ogden Arms, then just a pub, was a prime meeting place. Now it is The Rembrandt, has a hotel, and is the favorite haunt of the leather and tattoo guys.

If you want to pay homage to its roots you should visit The Rembrandt, formerly the Ogden Arms, along with Napoleons, New York New York, Cruz 101 and The New Union as they were the beginning of the gay scene, when homophobic police raids were quite common.

Now the police have a more tolerant attitude and Canal Street is booming with pubs, clubs and restaurants, putting it on a par with London and Brighton. In fact some might say when it comes to clubbing, Manchester is the number 1 place to party. Some other bars of note are the Tribecca Bar and Bed, where the downstairs restaurant has full size beds, Cyotes and Vanilla cater to the lesbian crowd, though not exclusively, Spirit, Queer and Taurus are all worthy of a visit.

Manchester's gay credentials are further enhanced by its annual Pride celebration, which is one of the best in Europe and that a survey by Diva magazine found the Manchester Metropolitan University is the most gay friendly university in the UK.

There are numerous gay friendly hotels in the Canal Street district, along with the new apartment hotels, which means that it is easy to visit from out of town, not that you will be doing much sleeping in this vibrant city, but it makes a good site for a holiday.

Manchester has so much to offer with its rich cultural heritage, particularly in music. Despite the Liverpool sound of the Beatles, Manchester had The Hollies, Herman's Hermits and Freddy and the Dreamers who were big on both sides of the Atlantic. In fact the list of bands or musicians who have emanated from Manchester is long and illustrious such as The Smiths, Oasis, Elbow, Stone Roses, Joy Division / New Order, The Verve, Badly Drawn Boy etc., etc ..

There is also an annual jazz festival plus the Hallé Orchestra and a thriving Opera scene.

Amongst the many art galleries is The Lowry, an amazing steel and glass building, rising over the old docks area, which displays the work of local hero LS Lowery along with other ventures catering for the visual and performing arts.

The theater is thriving too, with many theaters showing a wide range of plays from the classics to the avant garde.

Manchester has its own International airport and good road and rail links, so it makes a good base if you want to visit Liverpool, the Lake District or Blackpool, which along with also having some great gay clubs, has a huge beach, the Blackpool Tower and some awesome roller coaster rides.

Famous Soccer Players – Denis Law, Scotland

One of the greatest and most famous soccer players that Britain has ever produced is Denis Law; aka "the King".

Denis Law was a genius in front of goal, who during the 1960s – the Beatles era – was the darling of Manchester United. There, his adoring fans christened him "the King".

He had all the attributes required of a truly great striker; fantastic acceleration, great vision, spacial awareness, two feet – he could control and shoot with either, prodigious leaping and heading ability, bravery and, although he was a slim guy, he could look after himself!

During his career he represented not only Scotland (55 caps), but the Italian League XI, the Rest of Europe XI and a World XI. He was also voted European Footballer of the Year in 1964.

Law was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1940, where he turned into a fine schoolboy footballer. Unfortunately his home team Aberdeen did not recognize his talents early enough, for he was whisked away to Huddersfield Town when he was barely 15 years old. He played his first professional game for them at the tender age of 16 in 1956, he was that talented.

By the time he was 19, he was already a young goal scorer of immense talent having been called up to the Scottish national team at the age of 18. Big clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, Glasgow Rangers, West Bromwich Albion, Everton and Manchester City were all showing a keen interest. After much deliberation he went to Manchester City in 1960 for a then record transfer fee of 55,000 British Pounds. He only stayed at City for a year or so, but managed to score 19 goals in 37 league appearances, an excellent scoring rate considering City were battling relegation for most of his time there.

That scoring rate impressed no less than Torino of Italy who Law joined in 1961, but in truth things did not turn out how he had expected. He did not speak Italian of course and Italian football was defensive and cynical, not to say actually brutal and violent. During this time though he was playing well enough that he represented the Italian League select, a fantastic honor for a foreign player. He was also voted the best foreign player in Italy by the Italian press. However, he was not really happy there and was glad when Manchester United's legendary manager, Matt Busby, came to his rescue in the Summer of 1962.

Law signed for Manchester United for another record transfer fee, this time of 115,000 British Pounds. By now he was truly one of the most famous soccer players on the planet. And this was to be the start of a golden era for both Law and Manchester United. During his time at United and playing alongside the likes of George Best, Bobby Charlton, and Paddy Crerrand, he scored 160 goals in 222 games. In 1973, after 11 years at United Law signed once again for Manchester City. Although his best playing days were behind him at the age of 33, he was still more than good enough to play for a top English team. Not only that, he was playing well enough to be chosen for Scotland in the 1974 World Cup!

However, after representing his beloved country in those 1974 World Cup Finals, Denis Law retired from football, turning down offers to play in countries all over the world.

For those of you too young to have even heard of Denis Law, ask your father or grandfather. He was an absolute goal scoring genius who lit-up every game he played in. And the million dollar question: Would he have survived in today's game? You bet he would. Genius is genius no matter what the era. Denis Law richly deserves the title of "one of the most famous soccer players" in the history of the game.

Long live the King!
