What is the most dumbest/funniest pregnancy advise you ever heard or was given to you?

My MIL told me when I first got pregnant with my daughter that it's recommended to drink a glass of OJ a day or the baby will come out retarded. I hate hate OJ but she bought like 2 gallons a week for me and brought it over to me and I just brought them over to my mom :)

  • If I comb someone else's hair while pregnant, their hair would fall out and it would go to the baby.

  • Wow! That's by far the craziest thing I've heard... But I was told if I sleep on my back while pregnant the baby will have a higher chance of depression as an adult...

  • I never really got anything too weird. Just was told that because I never had heartburn that my baby would be born bald. LOL He had enough hair for a 2 year old.

  • Don't raise your arms above your head or you will strangle the baby. *eye roll*

    I had a craving for strawberry milkshakes ... I was told that the kid would come out with a strawberry birthmark. Didn't happen!!

    Can't forget ... don't watch scary movies or any bad news or it will "mark" the baby. Never figured that one out.

    Oh and everyone had absolute FITS when I would rearrange the furniture! The silly things people say when someone is pregnant.

  • Oh, I also had someone tell me (via CM) that there is no point in avoiding chemicals or medications because most of the chemicals listed as "dangerous" are natural elements in our world and aren't really harmful - some of the ones she listed were Formaldehyde, Aluminum, Mercury, and Chlorine...
