Superstition # 1.Pregnant should not sit in the position of "leg for foot"
It is believed that in this case the legs of the baby after birth will have excessive curvature. Part of the superstition is medically explained, but the danger lies elsewhere. Pregnant women often have problems with blood flow in their veins, and such a posture can only exacerbate the situation. Of course, on the "curvature" of the baby's legs this can not affect, but certain troubles are quite real.
Superstition number 2.Sleeping on the back during pregnancy is highly not advisable
This is explained by the fact that the baby can suffocate. Here everything is also quite understandable. When a woman is sleeping on her back, a hollow vein is strongly pinched. This can lead to a worsening of blood circulation, hemorrhoids and back pain in a future childbirth.
Superstition №3.Pregnant can not be denied
About this sign know almost everything. If a woman wants something, one must satisfy her desire. Otherwise, it can lead to complications of childbirth. These requirements are justified, especially in the first few months of pregnancy. During this period the baby develops and requires everything that he wants. Naturally, bad habits to wishes should not apply.
Superstition number 4.No one can talk about their pregnancy
. In principle, this sign has been known for a long time, and for the first three months, women tried not to tell others( and even relatives) that they were pregnant. This made it possible to avoid the evil eye of unkind people. Today, this sign is observed to a greater extent in order to avoid jeers and "winks."
Superstition number 5.The first 40 days can not show the child( and his photo) to other people's
Today in this relationship, different opinions. Some women practically from the first days of life go out with the baby to "light", while others sit at home for several months. Here everything depends on the child's adaptation to the outside world. It is recommended to give the baby at least a month and a half to adapt and protect it from a lot of noise and strangers.
Superstition number 6.You can not buy things to the child before the birth.
There are also different opinions about this sign. On the one hand, after the birth of a child, there may not be enough time to buy everything necessary. It is much more convenient to skimp in advance. On the other hand, I do not want to "play" with fate and think of something in advance, because the most difficult test( childbirth) is yet to come. But there is no reasonable justification for this superstition.
Superstition №7.A pregnant woman should not take a bath
Of course, a hot bath for the expectant mother is not very desirable, but that's no harm at all( at least, so doctors say).The impact of warm water helps relax the back muscles.
Superstition number 8.Hands above the head do not raise, otherwise the kid gets entangled in the umbilical cord
This sign is true only if the woman is long in one position. But the danger is not just in the umbilical cord, but in violation of the circulation of the pregnant woman.
Superstition number 9.You can not knit
It was believed that( as in the previous case) the child may get confused in the umbilical cord. But there is no concrete danger here. The problem in most cases concerns a long stay in a static situation.
Superstition №10.If you eat an egg with a double yolk, then twins or fused fruits of
will be born. This sign can be classed as "stupid", because there is no regularity between eating eggs and the characteristics of children.
In any case, no matter what the sign, it should not be allowed to be taken to heart and sincerely believe in it. Otherwise, it can indeed be realized.
