Pregnancy Myths

Are you a ‘would be mum’?

You must be hearing lots of pregnancy recommendations based on traditional beliefs. Do this! Don’t do that! It’s hard to know what to believe or whom to believe. But remember, every pregnancy is unique, so follow your doctor’s prescription above anything else. Here are some pregnancy myths, commonly heard in this stage!

Myth1- Eat for two: You need only about 300 extra calories per day to support your baby’s growth. You should eat six or seven small meals after every two to three hours, will help you to keep your blood sugar in a constant range.

Myth2- Say NO to Caffeine:  One small cup of coffee a day is perfectly fine. But if consumption is 3-4 cups per day this might cause miscarriage, so limit your caffeine consumption.

Myth3- Carry high, it’s a girl. Carry low, it’s a boy: Only the baby’s position in the womb can tell you its sex. You just can’t tell from outside the womb. So hope for a baby with good health, irrespective of the sex!

Myth 4- No sex, it will hurt your baby: You can still have sex. Your baby is fully protected by the amniotic sac and strong muscles. But beware of sexually transmitted infections — genital warts, Chlamydia, herpes, HIV, as the disease could be transmitted to your baby too.

Myth5- Avoid hair dyes, dryers:  Chemicals from hair permanents dye and relaxers are absorbed through the skin only in negligible amount that aren’t harmful for your junior.

Enjoy your pregnancy and do not worry over these myths, rather consult your doctor and be advised as they suggest.
