Girls worry about the smallest things. If a girl tells a joke to another girl, and she looks unamused or unimpressed, that girl will go away and analyze and over analyze why that girl reacted that way. It can affect her. Girls are very socially aware of the feelings around them.
Nothing for some women!!! They feel nothing, and that is ok. For others it feels like a pulling/dragging/tingling sensation in their breasts, and their breasts feel heavier after it. Some women feel it so strongly that they dread it a little. For me, it was a very strong feeling that felt like there were strings tied around my milk ducts (which I imagined as balloons) about half way up my breasts and they were being pulled downward together. Just like the big bunch of balloons in that movie ‘Up’.
When a virus invades our bodies, it begins to attack and multiply. Our blood contains various types of white blood cells that are there to attack back. However, when a virus is new to the body, our white blood cells can become overwhelmed and may take some time to work out what this virus is and how to defeat it. This can take days or weeks, and we will feel very unwell while the virus is multiplying.
All babies have reflux. Anatomically, there is a valve at the top of the stomach that is meant to close off and prevent backflow of stomach contents/acid up the oesophagus. In small babies this is never closed as it is not yet a mature muscle. Therefore, when babies are put in a lying down position, they get reflux. If babies take in too much milk and their stomachs become over inflated, their reflux symptoms worsen. This is why reflux starts to become an issue at about 3weeks of age, as volumes of milk are increasing.
