Three strange signs for pregnant women who turned out to be true

Despite the fact that recently few people believe in signs for pregnant women, some of them are working. Of course, it’s better not to count the date of birth as our ancestors did, but you can also listen to certain signs. These three common superstitions, as it turned out, are well-grounded - take note!

Most of the folk wisdom, which older relatives are trying to convey to young future mothers, can be ignored. For example, determining the sex of a child: a low belly is like a boy, or a girl, or elseanythingbut in no case is it that the abdominal muscles are a little stretched, no. Your addictions will not appear in the form of moles on the skin of a child. And long walks will not cause childbirth. And no, the full moon does not affect the timing of birth.
But in the past years there have been studies that have confirmed the veracity of some outlandish ideas concerning children and pregnancy.So, three ideas that superstitious grannies can chalk up as true.

Scientists are not completely sure of the reason, but nevertheless: in 2003, a team of doctors analyzed more than 8,000 deliveries that occurred between 1997 and 2000, only in one hospital in Ireland, not taking into account cases of premature birth of the child or birth stimulation. The difference in the number of sexes was small, but noticeable - on average, the birth of a boy took more than 6 hours, the girls - up to 6 hours.

At childbirth of boys in women, complications occurred more often, which subsequently in 6% of cases implied a Caesarean section (for comparison: in girls - in 4% of cases) or in 8% of cases of use of obstetric forceps (for comparison: in girls - in 6% cases). In general, during the delivery of boys in 29% of cases, the woman in labor required interventionsomechildbirth, at childbirth of girls - in 24% of cases.
A possible reason for this difference is that boys at birth weigh on average 90–100 grams more than girls. In addition, there are studies proving that a woman pregnant with a boy consumes more calories.

Stay away from bananas if you want a girl

The point is not only that pregnant women eat more, but this statement also works in the opposite direction. As part of a study in 2008, a survey was conducted among 740 women who had their first pregnancy, on what their diet was like during the year before conception. Then the survey participants were divided into three groups according to the level of calorie intake. Representatives of the third group that ate the most calories in 56% of cases had a son. The third with the lowest calorie intake - in 55% of cases had a daughter.
And here, where the old banana saga pops up - eating this fruit before conception increases the chances of having a son. That is, it’s not just numbers that matter, but certain nutrients are important. Eating large amounts of potassium (which is contained in excess in bananas) is associated with pregnancy by boys, as is food with a high content of calcium and sodium.

But it is important to remember that it is very risky to push and rearrange your diet in order to affect the sex of the unborn child, prompting mothers to force some nutrients and ignore others.It will be more correct and safe to focus on good nutrition during pregnancy weekly, leaving the question of the sex of the child to chance.

Heartburn is a precursor to a hairy baby

Plus one terrifying fact about children: once in the second trimester of pregnancy, they begin to have a coat of fine hair all over their body, which is called lanugo - andsomewherein the third trimester of pregnancy, they fall out and the children eat it. The first poop of a child, in fact, are the digested remnants of their own body hair.
But the hair on the head is another story. Lanugo happens to all children in the womb, but not all children are born withsomethingat the top - and mothers who want to know in advance whether their child will have hair or be bald can take my own heartburn as a clue.

In 2006, a team of researchers from Johns Hopkins University monitored 64 women throughout their pregnancy, 28 of whom complained of moderate or severe heartburn. In this group, 23 women gave birth to babies with medium or high hairiness. On the other hand, out of 12 women who reported the absence of heartburn in general, 10 gave birth to children less hairy than the average among newborns.
Heartburn during pregnancy is not the result of hair growth in a child, or vice versa. Most likely, according to the authors of the study, both factors were caused by the third: pregnancy hormones. In particular, the same hormones that promote hair growth in the womb, affect the relaxation of the muscles of the stomach, which contain gastric acid. Thus, you can technically blame a child for heartburn, but the connection between these two events is not as immediate as the older generation claims.
