    To this day my MIL will say she remembers the moment she craved a strawberry and didn't eat it and that's why her baby was born with a strawberry birthmark.... Oh.dear.
    Funny you should say that, Greek people say that. Ha Ha

    I've heard about the washing line and the craving and last of all the if tummy itchy baby is getting hair on head.
    I've heard not to cross your legs. Not sure why.
    Caffeine in pregnancy apparently not good. There's a whole bunch of them and the most funny one.
    If your "having fun" with your partner your baby is feeling it and getting poked.
    Ummm I highly doubt that. But that's the funniest one.

    I once witnessed some people have a serious go at a poor pregnant woman for doing just this. It was pretty much verbal abuse (I was about 14, so I didn't intervene)... all because of this stupid old wives tale!

    I often wonder if it was just created by someone who wanted a reason to slack off a little though... sounds like a good idea really. I might try it on with DP and see if he believes it.

    I've heard this one too. I have lots of birth marks. I have a fish, rabbit and crab shaped ones, and one shaped like a a truck.

    I convinced my DF of this. I didn't have to do any washing for 3 months
