I read this “Horrible Advice for Pregnant Women throughout History” this afternoon and couldn’t help but giggle …
I read the above article after seeing George Takei sharing it on Facebook. Holy crap did I laugh! But I was also concerned – some of the things I’m sure people believed was INCREDIBLE!
Some of my favourite lines are:
- Don’t eat spicy foods or they will make your fetus blind
- Consuming soft cheese would make your unborn son’s penis small
- Quiet, happy mothers made quiet, happy babies
- Smoking made pregnant mothers “calmer” and thus had a positive impact on the unborn baby
SMOKING IS A POSITIVE?! Sheesh we’ve come a long way – don’t you think!?
Have you guys heard of anything weird and strange people used to do or think when they were pregnant?
