Many women want to experience pregnancy. A special moment that you will always remember and that will allow you to create a bond with your baby since before birth. However, it is important that you stay informed, to avoid data or information that could harm you. We share some myths about pregnancy that you should know.
It is very important that you take care of everything you eat during pregnancy. It is necessary that you eat a balanced diet with all the nutrients that you and the baby need. However, it is false that women eat larger amounts of food. What really happens is that mothers tend to eat in small portions but more frequently.
Every woman can continue with her sexual life normally during pregnancy, unless otherwise directed by a doctor. Sex may be uncomfortable later in the pregnancy, but there is no risk that it will cause miscarriage or damage to the fetus.
Although it is important to note that excess in exercise is not recommended during pregnancy, doing it in moderation can provide different benefits to the baby and the mother.
Yoga, water aerobics and Pilates for pregnant women are some of the best sports you can practice. It is important that you avoid high-impact physical activities.
This myth is very common, however there is no scientific proof that this is true. It is believed that if the sex of the baby can be defined if the mother’s womb looks tall, or short and wide. Each woman’s body is different, so a 100% accurate prediction cannot be made taking into account the physical appearance of the mother.
