Old Myths of Pregnancy

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.

During Pregnancy:

  • 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.
