As an expecting parent, you're bound to think about what the baby might be going through in the different stages of pregnancy. Along with the foetus there are some amazing changes that happen to the mother's body as well. While you will get expert advice and must-know information online and from your doctor, here are a few fun facts (other than what the scans or doctors tell you) that might interest you.
1. Did you know babies cry in the womb?
So try and talk to your baby when you sense that he or she is not happy.
2. A woman's uterus expands to more than 500 times its normal size over the course of pregnancy
Don't worry, you will get enough opportunities to regain your shape once the baby is out.

3. A fetus acquires fingerprints at the age of 3 months
And these fingerprints are directly related to the brain development. Ask around for a Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence Test after your baby is a year old. It will tell you some amazing facts about your little one.
4. Studies have shown than babies can taste what the mother is eating
Eat whatever you want your child to eat as he grows up! You don't want a fussy eater later, isn't it?

5. The last organ to develop in the baby is the lungs
She probably doesn't need them until she's out. After all, you are her life force giving her all the oxygen she needs. Breathe deep always - good for you and your baby.
6. Most of the amniotic fluid is actually sterile urine
Amniotic fluid is the protective fluid contained by the amniotic sac of a pregnant female. This fluid also acts as a shock absorber to protect your baby from any jerks.
Each of these nine months are one of the biggest wonders on this planet. Have an amazing and safe pregnancy!
