There are so many fun facts about pregnancy. We’ve compiled a few and hope you’ll enjoy them.

  • Babies start moving between six to seven weeks, although Mum can’t feel them move until the beginning of the fifth month.
  • Twins are on the increase… in the early 1980’s 1% of births were twins, and that number has risen to nearly 2%.
  • Babies play with their umbilical cord
  • A researcher videoed twins in the womb and captured them patting each other through separate amniotic sacs.
  • At 28 weeks babies can distinguish between the taste of bitter and sweet fluids injected in the womb.
  • Only 10% of babies are born on their predicted due date.
  • During pregnancy, the average woman’s uterus expands up to five hundred times its normal size.
  • Tuesday is the most popular day for births, with Saturday being the least busy day of the week (likely because most doctors do not schedule c-sections for Saturdays).
  • The average weight gain during pregnancy for expectant mothers is around 30lbs.
  • Boy babies outnumber girl babies; this ratio has stayed the same over the last 6 decades.
