Growing up as a young woman, you may have heard some stories from your mother regarding do’s and don'ts when you’re pregnant. Most likely, they would be considered silly nowadays, however, you’ve held them in high regard and, in some ways, almost take it as the truth itself.
We’re here to let you know that most of them are wrong! But don’t worry, We’re here to give you what to do instead and they actually work... in some ways, even better!
Myth 1: Craving sweets means you're expecting a girl, salt if you're expecting a boy
What to do instead: Just be mindful of what you eat. Nothing you eat can influence the gender of your baby.
Myth 2: You can't make love while pregnant as it might hurt the baby
What to do instead: As long as you keep the lovemaking at a calm, smooth rhythm, you won't have to worry about your baby's health during lovemaking.
Myth 3: Eating more than double the normal food intake to accommodate baby's health
What to do instead: Have a routine check-up with your doctor and consult with a nutritionist if needed to keep the weight within. Also, focus more on the quality of your calories, not just adding it for the sake of accommodating the baby
Much like how a broken glass can give you 7 years of bad luck, myths stated above are mainly old stories that somehow stuck with people, mostly cause by uncertainty and, at some point, coincidence. Hope these can help you open up your mind for more positive experiences while carrying your baby.
