Kathie Lee & Hoda: Who Knew? Pregnancy Trivia
It was time for the weekly trivia game, Who Knew?, on the Today Show. With pregnancies seeming to be the trend right now among celebrities, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb have pregnancy trivia to help you know what to expect when you’re expecting. Alison Bernstein, Editor at TheBump.com, joined them in the studio.
Pregnancy Trivia: Dirty Diapers
On average, how many dirty diapers will a parent of one child change in a year?
The correct is 4,000. Alison Bernstein said that it is about 320 diapers a month of poopy, pee-filled diapers.
Pregnancy Trivia: Most Popular Day Of Week For Births
What day of the week is the most popular day to give birth?
The correct answer is Tuesday. Alison Bernstein said that when you add in induced labor and scheduled c-sections and even natural births are less likely to happen over the weekend, Sunday is the least likely day to have their baby. She said that she guesses people just want their weekend before that baby comes.
Pregnancy Trivia: Eating For Two
One of the best parts about being pregnant is being able to “eat for two.” How many extra calories per day are recommended for a woman pregnant with one child?
The correct answer is 300. Alison Bernstein said that Mom’s are shocked by this number and that you only need 300 extra calories for the baby to get everything they need. Most Moms gain approximately 25 pounds during pregnancy.

- 1 out of 15
- 1 out of 20
- 1 out of 30
- 1 out of 50
The correct answer is 1 out of 30. Alison Berbstein said that women are having babies later in life and using In Vitro Fertilization, which results in multiple births. So, we are seeing more twins and triplets being born.
Pregnancy Trivia: Kids Growth Spurts
Kids grow at the fastest rate during which part of their lives?
