Is reaching and stretching up bad for baby????

I was at my grandmother's house around Easter and I was reaching on top of a cabinet for something and she told me not to reach up so much because it causes the baby to get tangled in the cord. Is this true? or is she just one of those superstitious people. Does anyone know what really cause the baby to get tangled. How often does it happen? Sorry if it sounds weird but ever since she told me i've been thinking and worried about this alot.

Re: Is reaching and stretching up bad for baby????

i actually just watched a show "pregnancy for dummies" the other day and they said that stretching will not hurt the baby at all. i just dont do it because it gives me round ligament pain if i do. i dont think its anything that you do that causes the baby to get tangled its just him squirming around in such a tight space.

People have also been telling me not to reach above my head or stretch too far. I asked my dr if this was really dangerous & she said it's an old wives' tale. She said if stretching wasn't safe, they wouldn't have yoga for pregnant women. Makes sense to me.

What you guys are saying is true. My doctor never told me and if these things were important it should be a routine for a doctor to say these things to us. Thanks alot for all your help!
