Do not dye your hair, do not eat raw fish, avoid heels or clothes clingy ... those "scientifically proven" to those invented from scratch, here are the 5 false most common myths about pregnancy.

1. If the stomach is high and round it will be a girl, if it's pointed it's a boy

Let's say right away: you can not determine the sex of the baby from the belly shape, it's just an urban legend. So before you decorate the room and prepare a baby shower mono-color, trust your doctor!

2. If not immediately satisfy a desire, the baby will be born in spots

Feeling like strawberries, ice cream, fried ... this is the most widespread. But beware, there is no correlation between food cravings and stains on baby's skin. In pregnancy, you may be subject to some bizarre desire, it is true, but it's just the body trying to communicate what feels need not worry.

3. During pregnancy no physical activity!

The great anxiety of expectant mothers: avoid sudden movements, give up the sport. But this is just a cliché: do movement is fundamental to keep fit and healthy. Advice? Choose the most gentle movements: yoga, swimming and long walks (always after consulting a doctor).
