Oh my gosh, this from ScienceAlert is crazy!
During the approximate 40 weeks of pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes some significant changes.
As the foetus grows, it occupies more and more space inside the mother. This is the cause of the obvious pregnancy bump, but just expanding outward isn’t enough – her internal organs are also put under a significant amount of pressure, which can cause some discomfort.
That movement can also be pretty dramatic to look at. In the animation below, which we spotted when it was recently tweeted out by the UK publication Scienmag, you can see those nine months of change sped up to just a few seconds.
The Museum of Science and Technology in Chicago created this cool video to show how a woman’s organs move around inside her body to accommodate the baby. It’s really miraculous… and I’m feeling every second of this right about now.
