My body has a mind of its own!
Play • 22 min

Like everyone else, before my body started the amazing process of creating a human, I knew I might experience nausea – it’s the most common question people ask me when they want to know how my pregnancy has been. But I didn’t know about all the other pregnancy body changes, from the really weird (like how the smell of your wee can get stronger) to the curious (such as the appearance of skin pigmentation) and the weirdly painful (like the brilliantly named “lightning crotch” also known as the less porn-star-sounding name of “lightning pain”). And all those pregnancy body changes are what this episode is about. Thank you to the experts: accredited practising dietitian Chloe McLeod and GP and co-founder of ESK Dr Ginni Mansberg.
