Superstitions in pregnant women can be many. The most exciting and the most important period in the life of every woman - is, of course, when she is carrying his baby. The woman in this period transformed, unborn child takes all of her thoughts and becomes the center of everything. Everything would be wonderful, would not it be so terrible at this crucial moment.
As you know, the basis of all the fear of the unknown. If a woman is going to give birth to her first child, no book can not give her what is it really. The body is undergoing great changes. Women are particularly vulnerable. But what they do is often around? Do you think they shield the woman awaiting baby from all fear? Unfortunately, it is often quite the opposite. They aggravate her condition, tumbling to a poor heap of superstitions and myths. This strong people - envelop the mystery of momentous events prejudices.
For centuries, having no medical knowledge, people have tried to fill the void with their speculations and guesses. It sounds folk wisdom sometimes is so unthinkable that you wonder how it is possible to follow such advice.
For centuries, people were afraid of "evil eye." The fear that the "evil eye" can spoil any undertaking and lead to terrible consequences and resulted in the myth that it is better not to tell anyone about their interesting position. However, I would venture to make, and yet another version of the origin myth, but more on that later. In principle, the myth of a harmless, if your daily life is not related to physical overload. Otherwise, he may do a disservice. It would be better if your colleagues will not be too much pressure on you and your work load.
Expectant mothers, besides, it is important to protect against stress. It should be noted that this myth may be just punishment for the management of enterprises. One woman so skillfully concealed from all the interesting position, masking it under well-chosen clothes, that the director was stunned and did not know what to replace valuable employee when she put the statement on the table and went on maternity leave.
Grandmothers do not cease to repeat that you can not sew, you can not knit, it is impossible to know the baby's sex, taking a bath and even a bunch of meaningless things that will make life in anticipation of the child into a nightmare.
For example, national set of rules prohibits pregnant women to get a haircut. Ostensibly, scissors shorten the child age. But changing the structure of the hair requires care. So haircut can only benefit. A beautiful woman will feel much better psychologically, that will have a beneficial effect on her physical condition.
Myth buy things in advance - also has no reason to. Systematic preparation for the big event will be a big plus when pipsqueak appears in the house. All the attention - the baby in the house quiet, and no one panicked rush to the shops, trying to restock rapidly disappearing diapers.
There is a misconception that the sex of the baby can be determined by eating habits. In fact, this choice affects only the urgent need for certain vitamins.
Eat everything "for two", as advised by the people, it is also not necessary. Food should be beneficial, and it should not be much. You just get so run the risk of complications during childbirth. Large fruit - not a guarantee of the baby's health, and the complexity of the process of birth can lead to injury, as the mother and child. You do not have to torture yourself to strict dieting.
But there are among the myths and quite rational. For example, the myth that you can not sit leg to leg - are not so stupid. The truth is the reason why the popular rumor has added it to the set of rules - no good. The myth says that because of this child may become clubfoot. In fact, this posture is bad, because it prevents good circulation. Myth prohibiting sleeping on your back, too intelligent wave. Large fruit presses on the spinal column, especially in the last trimester, which also violates the circulation.
Do not blindly believe everything they tell you, look for a grain of truth in everything else risk becoming a nervous lady. Otherwise, maybe it makes sense to take advantage of the myth, with which we began this story. Do not talk about her pregnancy for those who are extremely superstitious to your head rained hail "People's Wisdom". Perhaps this myth was invented by quacks, to shield them from the mothers in the process of waiting? Make a wonderful child waiting period memorable. Listen to your inner voice and heart of their baby. You are a whole and all your fears will give it. Do not scare your baby!
