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.

5 Benefits of a Multi-Generational Advisory Firm and What It Means For You

Many clients of financial advisors share a common concern and fear. Because the process of finding an individual to trust with their money is not something to be taken lightly, this concern can be magnified. Clients wonder what happens to them if their financial advisor retires or unexpectedly dies. This is a legitimate concern. What would happen if your advisor decided to retire to warmer weather and sunnier places? Isn’t that something most people work hard for? Or a worse case scenario, what if your advisor was involved in an accident. As a result they have been deemed physically or mentally incapable of handling your finances. Now what… ?

Is your financial advisory firm prepared to deal with these what if scenarios?

This commonly voiced concern is why advisory firms and the financial industry have begun focusing more on succession planning and multi-generational advisory teams.

If multi-generational has you thinking «Big Deal» or «Who Cares?»… here are 6 benefits of a multi-generational advisory team and what it means for you.

Built In Transition Planning

Life is unpredictable and we cannot predict the future. What we do know is that change and growing older are inevitable. Just as you are working hard to save enough to retire, your financial advisor is doing the same.

Multi-generational advisory firms have a built-in transition plan. These firms are acclimating their newer and younger associates with current clients. They are leveraging the experience and wisdom that the senior advisors have gained to help train and guide newer associates. Newer advisors will gain experience, knowledge and expertise in the field while working with senior partners. This built in transition plan ensures continuity and no disruption of service to the client.

While this won’t happen over night and will require a lot of work, this type of planning is in the client’s best interest. Feeling confident that your advisors have a plan for you and your future should be encouraging and expected. Multi-generational family practices offer an additional dynamic where family life, familiarity and genetics can also contribute to the trust factor.

Experience And Wisdom Meet New Technology And Expanded Communications

As an advisor enters into the industry, there is one valuable thing that all of the studying, textbooks, and exams cannot provide… experience. Experience is undeniably an important attribute when looking at an advisor. This can only be obtained with time and is something every new associate has to go through «on the job». Multi-generational advisory firms are more prepared to alleviate this concern. While they cannot completely eliminate this, aging advisors are able to pass down their experience and wisdom to the next generation of advisors through training and mentorship. This is extremely valuable asset for any new advisor in the field and can play a huge role in their development and client successes.

The veteran advisor also stands to benefit from this relationship. After doing things the same way for a number of years, a fresh new outlook and access to new communication tools will be of tremendous help to the senior advisor and their clients.

Financial planning 30 years ago is not the same as it is today. With technology evolving by the day, the younger advisor can help bridge the gap towards better client service that has continued to evolve over the last 30 years.

Technology. It allows for information to be distributed quickly and efficiently. Next gen advisors are more apt to develop an effective contact management strategy that utilizes modern technology. They are more comfortable with technology which helps implement better client communications.

Couple this with the experience of a veteran advisor and your financial team is better equipped to help you and your family at any stage in life.

Longevity and Continuity

Life expectancies are increasing past age 80. Younger generations are expected to live longer than their predecessors. Because individuals are living longer, they need to build this into their retirement expectations. Americans aren’t saving enough as it is. It is more important than ever to plan accordingly.

With clients of all ages having advisors of different ages becomes even more important. Today many advisors are in their 40’s and 50’s. Let’s say you start to work with an advisor in their 50’s. What will you do if in 10-15 years your advisor decides to retire and you, as most people, need guidance well into your 80’s or 90’s? During those years change is inevitable. From a financial standpoint, change requires the adjusting and readjusting of your financial plan to reflect those changes.

With multi-generational support as you progress through life and all of its challenges, you’ll have someone there throughout to help guide you and should not have the need to search for a new advisor..

Fiduciary Responsibility

All investment advisors have a fiduciary responsibility to act in your best interest.

Having a succession plan in place is part of this responsibility. There should be a plan for how clients will be handled if an advisor retires, dies or is incapable of acting as your financial advisor due to an accident. Some owners plan to sell their business 100% to the highest bidder. Others decide to have a succession plan where a familiar face of the advisory firm steps in to take ownership.

Having an existing and familiar advisor be appointed as an owner prior to being needed is another benefit of a multi-generational advisory firm. Knowing that your advisor has helped trained and trusts the next generation advisor enough to personally recommend them can make the decision to continue the advisory relationship much easier.

As an advisor, I would prefer to train and work hand-in-hand with the advisors that will ultimately become my successor. This way I can screen them in advance to make sure they are familiar with the expectations of my clients and the relationships we have formed. I believe this enhances my clients best interest and multi-generational firms make this possible.

Working With Your Multi-Generational Needs

If you’re currently working with a financial advisor, you understand and see the benefits of financial planning. Most parents who have a financial advisor want their children to do the same. Knowing what they know now, many clients want their children to start sooner than they did. Multi-generational firms’ continuity helps you and your children.

Next gen advisors may be able to relate better with next-gen clients because they are from the same generation. They grew up with the same technology and may even be facing some of the same financial concerns. The advisory relationship may begin with the veteran advisor and evolve naturally to the younger advisors over the years.

In Conclusion:

Whether its you or your children you’re concerned about, figuring out the answer to these «what if» questions is important. There is nothing more stressful than being content and comfortable with your financial advisor and then being forced to find a new one.

Ask your financial advisor these questions and see what his or her response is. If you’re unhappy with the response start doing your research at other advisory teams. Look for an advisory team that has that built in transition plan like multi-generational firms. These firms have planned for your advisory needs now and in the future. They are trying to make sure you are comfortable with the relationships for a long time to come. But remember, the decision is always yours.

While Pizza Deliveries Increase, How Are the Other Restaurants Coping in This Time of Recession?

With the Pizza chain’s claiming record takings last year it seems that when the British public get stressed about the financial situation of the country they turn to food. The large chain that is making these claims also predicts that its profits will continue to increase over the coming year. It seems that the downturn in the market has made people think about how they are spending their money and many are choosing to stay home and have their food delivered at home rather than going out and enjoying the quality of a restaurant.

Many restaurants across the country have experienced a reduction in their profits and while some have chosen to get their heads down and weather the storm many enterprising restaurants have decided that in hardship comes opportunity and have decided to increase the marketing of their business. Coming from the Manchester/Liverpool area the businesses are using the internet to make theirs businesses more accesible to the public allowing them to rate their restaurants as they visit them and leave helpful comments about each restaurant.

Restaurants that offer a takeaway service or takeaway meal are seeing an upturn in their enquiries with the British Public whipped into their homes like naughty curs by the poor choices of an impotent government, and only venturing to their phones and computers to get in their normal supply from the Indian restaurant, Chinese restaurant, Italian restaurant and any other restaurant you can think to shake an empty carton at. Good restaurants are seeing that you sometimes have to speculate to accumulate, and the only way many are going to survive is to invest in decent websites and good online marketing, which includes decent search engine optimisation and choice referral websites.

The Manchester and Liverpool restaurants that I have spoken to, see this form of marketing as the way to go with more and more of society heading online. A quick ring round of Staffordshire restaurants, Lancashire restaurants, Derbyshire restaurants and North Wales restaurants has left me with the distinct feeling that the internet will be playing a larger part in everybodies lives in the future.

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.
