Static electricity and pregnancy

So today at wal-mart, i got shocked about 6 times or so, just while in wal mart! Touching the cart, the items, everything! Thought that was weird... has anyone had this happen? Is it a pregnancy thing or am i nuts? i do NOT remember that happening in my first pregnancy! I have been reading that it does happen to a lot of pregnant women though! is this happening to any of you?

It's most likely the dry winter air that's doing it and has nothing to do with the pregnancy.

christina is probably right. There is simply more static in the air now than normal because of the weather

Hasn't happened to me though, although the air here is definitely not dry!! More snowy. And cold.
