Reaching up while pregnant harms baby?

I have been told that its not good to do a lot of reaching up especially above my head while I'm pregnant because it can harm the baby...I wasn't told exactly what could happen
When i just searched I got a result of it being an old wives tale saying it can cause the cord to wrap around the baby's neck

So like with all questions I have I've come here to ask does reaching up cause harm to the baby?

  • I heard it was just an old wives tale. i reached up alot and didnt have any problems. When u get bigger it can be uncomfortable thats about it.

    ask your doctor just in case though.

  • No, it does NOT cause harm and cannot make the cord wrap. The cord will or will not depending on how the BABY moves, not on how YOU move.
