From tripping to dropping dishes, you might be feeling clumsier these days.

Even though you need the extra give only in your pelvis, the hormone works on your entire body, which means your hands and feet are affected, too.

Good thing you're eating for two... But are you? It seems science always wants to burst your happy bubble.
