There's some new research in today's Australian that suggests pregnancy can make women "smarter and quicker for decades after giving birth," because the extra estrogen floating around promotes neuron growth. Well, you Jezemoms must be brimming with estrogen, because yesterday, you gave us all the things we wanted to know, but were afraid to ask, about pregnancy and giving birth. Most of the dirty little secrets of pregnancy had to do with body functions and swelling: you got "plump Lara Croft style tits and cankles"; your tummy hair grew lustrous like a "care bear"; you peed yourselves, you shat yourselves, and oh, was there vomit! One of you summarized the end game thusly: "All said, it is a fabulous experience which I would not have traded for all the world, and I love my children more than I can say. So, suck on that bitches!" After the jump, more detailed horrors of the gestating and a prize for the grossest sentence ever.
