There are some old myths regarding pregnancy. Although I would not suggest that all of these would happen or likely to happen with everybody, but I do see and experiance some of them. So I thought why not I share it with you. Again these are just old myths. Please do not take them to heart.
- Its common to have bad memory in pregnancy. Keep a pen and paper handy to note things down, when you remember.
- Take lamaze classes/learn breathing techniques which help you in labor.
- If you have Nausea or moring sickness try something sour like dried amla (without salt preferred) or lemon. It helps reduce the morning sickness and through up feeling a lot.
If you are pregnant and your due date is nearing, then watch out for the following symptoms:
- If you have an urge to clean, then looks like your due date is really close by. This urge to clean is also called "nesting" in some places. Prepare for it.
- Take lamaze classes/learn breathing techniques which help you in labor. These breathing techniques learnt will be helpful to divert your mind while labor.
After Delivery of the baby:
- Keep yourself warm all the times, which will help mother to get more milk for the child.
- Some doctors say that, if you feed the baby totally using breastfeeding then you can get back to your shape within one month.
- Drinking more water daily increases the quantity of breast milk.
- Peanuts or any good iron content food increases the quality of the breast milk (ex: Thick milk instead of milk like 1% ).
I shall keep updating this post as and when I remember things.

Currently we switched to Jasmine rice, which is little better in price ($20 for 25 pounds) no way comparision in taste or quality to Sona masoori. Want to get basmati rice atleast, but our local BJs do not have any basmati rice. I went like 4 times (weekedays and weekends) but no difference. I could not find one.
I was wondering when will this stop. Hopefully in an year when they are supposed to start the export again, the prices hopefully might come down. Keeping my fingers crossed.
