on pregnancy and hormones

yeah, we’ve all heard the jokes about pregnancy and hormones. well, kris informed me that according to The Unofficial Guide to Having a Baby there’s some truth behind the “raging hormones” humor:

“During pregnancy, your body will produce as much estrogen as a nonpregnant woman’s body would make in 150 years – at mid-pregnancy, as much in a single day as a non-pregnant woman’s ovaries produce in three years.”
