I'm assuming this a myth... because it sounds rediculous!!! but i just want to double check...
My mum said that I shouldn't reach too much above my head, ie stretches, cleaning, painting etc.... She says it can affect how tight the umbilical cord is around the baby....
I laughed when she told me cause it sounds stupid - but i'm checking anyway....

Yeah I've heard not to hang out the washing because stretching and reaching above your head can wrap the umbilical cord around the babies neck. Sounds like a complete load of rubbish to me!

Yep, it's an old wives tale
But hey, if you can convince your partner it's true, it's a great way to get out of hanging the laundry out

Nah it's not true. Mums do yoga and all kinds of things in their pregnancy.

That was one of the first things my Aunty told me. My next visit at my Ob I asked lol and he looked at me strange and told me it was very untrue.
