Will wearing jeans cause the umbilical cord to wrap around the baby's neck ?

Someone told me I didn't need to be wearing jeans because to would cause the umbilical cord to wrap around the baby's neck. Is this the truth? I'm only 16 weeks and 3 days and barley showing. Should my baby be ok?

  • Yea, you don't have anything to worry about. That is the most ridiculous advice I've heard so far. I'm 19 weeks pregnant and I want to smack people all of the time with the stupid things they try to advise me on. Most all of which are old wives tales...annoying!

  • No, but as cupcake gets bigger you will find that s/he will get angry with you about them. I had a pair of maternity jeans that didn't have a panel, and once I got past about 7 months if I wore those jeans he would get really agitated and kick at the waistband (and my bladder...and ribs...and anywhere else he could reach.)

  • That's impossible. Why ever said that needs to read up on things before they give you anymore advise. I worse only jeans with both my pregnancies and my kids are alive and well and never had the cord around their neck

  • As long as the pants fit comfortably then you have no reason not to wear them. It will not cause the cord to wrap around the neck. That is the first I ever heard of something like that. I have heard the "Don't reach above your head or the cord will wrap around his neck"
    I don't by into that other wise we would not have all these people walking around today.
