1) Pregnancy is a significant sociocultural event in human society.

It marks the sacred connection between one generation and its offspring.

This is what most people think.

Let me tell you why its not --> through the lens of evolutionary medicine.
2) Pregnancy is actually a vicious battle between two partially related genetic entities --> the mother and its fetus.

Neither side shows mercy or takes prisoners.

We will focus on the battle for fuel at the fetomaternal interface in this Tweetorial.
3) First of all --> the physiology.

The pregnant female usually experiences reset homeostasis --> with fasting blood sugar (FBS) gradually falling till the week 12 --> then it stabilizes till term.

But PPBS shows sharper, more sustained rise, along with rising insulin levels!
