analysis will place the identity beyond doubt. The relationship of the 

child with the person who tends it is for it a continual source of sexual 

excitement and satisfaction flowing from the erogenous zones, especially 

since the fostering person--as a rule the mother--regards the child with 

emotions which proceed from her sexual life; strokes it, kisses it, rocks 

it, and very plainly treats it as a compensation for a fully valid sexual 

object." Freud remarks that girls who retain the childish character of 

their love for their parents to adult age are apt to make cold wives and 

to be sexually anaesthetic. 

 

[170] Esbach (in his _These de Paris_, published in 1876) showed that even 

the finger nails are affected in pregnancy and become measurably thinner.

[172] Iron appears to be liberated in the maternal organism during 

pregnancy, and Wychgel has shown (_Zeitschrift fuer Geburtshuelfe und 

Gynaekologie_, bd. xlvii, Heft II) that the pigment of pregnant women 

contains iron, and that the amount of iron in the urine is increased.

literature concerning the physiology of pregnancy, extending to ten pages, 

is appended by Pinard to his article "Grossesse," _Dictionnaire 

Encyclopedique des Sciences Medicales_.

[186] Thus, in Cornwall, "to be in the longing way" is a popular synonym 

for pregnancy.
