Some words we thought we knew have taken on a different meaning, others have become part of our daily vocabulary even if we were completely unaware of their existence before. We have collected 5 words that become in common use when you are expecting or having children who, if this is not the case, you will need to broaden your horizons and be up to any conversation on the subject!!
