Automatic TRANSCRIPT

<p><span>Pregnancy is, biologically speaking, extremely weird! A pregnant animal’s body goes through so many hormonal and physical changes to make sure a zygote has everything it needs to grow. This week, we’re talking about a few of those things, like why pregnant people get nauseated and other animals might not. So is pseudopregnancy a real thing, or are pandas just tricking zookeepers to get extra treats? Why is there a patent for a birthing machine that looks like a horrible carnival ride? And what the heck is a stone baby? </span></p> <p> </p> <p><span>Follow us on Twitter @SciShowTangents, where we’ll tweet out themes for upcoming episodes and you can ask the science couch questions! </span></p> <p> </p> <p><span>And if you want to learn more about any of our main topics, check out these links:</span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>[Truth or Fail]</strong></p> <p> </p> <p><a href="https://patents.google.com/patent/US3216423A/en"><span>https://patents.google.com/patent/US3216423A/en</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://dublin.sciencegallery.com/failbetter/apparatusfacilitatingbirthchildcentrifugalforce/"><span>https://dublin.sciencegallery.com/failbetter/apparatusfacilitatingbirthchildcentrifugalforce/</span></a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>[Fact Off]</strong></p> <p> </p> <p><span>Panda pseudopregnancy:</span></p> <p><a href="https://www.huffpost.com/entry/panda-yuan-yuan-fakes-pregnancy_n_55b99debe4b095423d0dddfe"><span>https://www.huffpost.com/entry/panda-yuan-yuan-fakes-pregnancy_n_55b99debe4b095423d0dddfe</span></a></p> <p><a href="http://news.sina.com.cn/s/2015-07-28/210632155850.shtml"><span>http://news.sina.com.cn/s/2015-07-28/210632155850.shtml</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-23626756"><span>https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-23626756</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://rep.bioscientifica.com/view/journals/rep/138/6/979.xml"><span>https://rep.bioscientifica.com/view/journals/rep/138/6/979.xml</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.livescience.com/6304-perplexing-panda-pseudo-pregnancy-pondered.html"><span>https://www.livescience.com/6304-perplexing-panda-pseudo-pregnancy-pondered.html</span></a></p> <p> </p> <p><span>Lithopedion:</span></p> <p><a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3979976/"><span>https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3979976/</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://alumni.amc.edu/pages/archives/archives---the-stone-baby"><span>https://alumni.amc.edu/pages/archives/archives---the-stone-baby</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://utmb.influuent.utsystem.edu/en/publications/lithopedion-stone-baby"><span>https://utmb.influuent.utsystem.edu/en/publications/lithopedion-stone-baby</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.health.harvard.edu/womens-health/calcium-beyond-the-bones"><span>https://www.health.harvard.edu/womens-health/calcium-beyond-the-bones</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4750627/"><span>https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4750627/</span></a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>[Ask the Science Couch]</strong></p> <p> </p> <p><span>Morning sickness:</span></p> <p><a href="http://news.cornell.edu/stories/2000/05/morning-sickness-protects-mothers-and-their-unborn"><span>http://news.cornell.edu/stories/2000/05/morning-sickness-protects-mothers-and-their-unborn</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3676933/"><span>https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3676933/</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.jstor.org/stable/2664252?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents"><span>https://www.jstor.org/stable/2664252?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.pregnancysicknesssupport.org.uk/resources/literature-review/symptoms-of-nvp-in-animals/"><span>https://www.pregnancysicknesssupport.org.uk/resources/literature-review/symptoms-of-nvp-in-animals/</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.livescience.com/32301-do-pregnant-animals-get-morning-sickness.html"><span>https://www.livescience.com/32301-do-pregnant-animals-get-morning-sickness.html</span></a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>[Butt One More Thing]</strong></p> <p> </p> <p><span>Meconium:</span></p> <p><a href="http://science.sciencemag.org/content/112/2901/150.long"><span>http://science.sciencemag.org/content/112/2901/150.long</span></a></p> <p><a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18281199"><span>https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18281199</span></a></p>
