Pregnancy Myths (Part 4)

Posted by Kero at Thursday, November 15, 2007
Good morning everyone. I just finished our laundry and I feel sleepy now but I would like to continue first with my entries on pregnancy myths. I had been busy with my paid posts so i know i owe my readers to finish this category.



Pregnancy Myth #9 --Having sexual intercourse can lead to premature labor

Medical experts day that prostaglandin in semen plus the contractions of sex can induce labor, but will not do so in a normal pregnancy. Only a few high risk pregnancies can be affected. Still when in doubt, it is best to get clarification from your doctor.

Pregnancy Myth #10 --Do not get a facial or steam in pregnancy
A pregnant woman cam continue treating herself to her usual facials, but medical experts say be aware that any new3 kind of facial may introduce skin allergies that may ultimately require oral medications in treatment. In addition, there is no harm in taking steam on the face.

Pregnancy Myth#11 -- Watch your fish intake
Experts say that pregnant women should not eat more than two servings of fich per week in order to protect developing babies from high level of brain damaging mercury. Avoid eating shark, swordfish, king mackerel, or golden or white snapper as they contain high level of mercury. Instead, opt for fish low in mercury such as shrimp, canned light tuna, salmon, pollock and catfish.

Pregnancy Myth #12 -- Delivery is hereditary (if Mum had a normal delivery, so will you)
This is not necessarily tru. The kind of delivery you have depends entirely on your body type, the position of your baby, and your state of health.

Pregnancy Myth #13 -- Sleeping on your left side
Medical experts say that sleeping on your left side speed ups nutrients to the baby, whereas sleeping on your back puts too much pressure on the vena cava. This is important to watch for, especially in the latter part of pregnancy when the baby's weight increases.

And that is all for my entries on this category. Thank you all for your interest. I hope I was able to enlighten some of your concerns in your pregnancy. I have to go now, because my baby inside me is kicking. He must be hungry because we only ate 2 slices of pineapple this morning and a slice of brown bread. I have to feed him first, before i can have my nap.Otherwise, he won't let me sleep hiihi. Ciao!!
