Out of all the funerals I been to ; about ten or more, I never seen a pregnant woman attending!!!! Are pregnant women not supposed to attend funerals, I heard that before or is that just crazy not to attend just because Im pregnant??

  • I attended my aunts funeral about 6-7 months pregnant. My mom didn't really want me to go because she thought it might have some affect on the baby. I think she was worried about the stress and emotion of the day.

  • I've never heard of not going just because you are pregnant, that seems odd to me. We lost my husband's Uncle, Father and Grandfather all while I was preggers with our first son and I attended all of the services. I would definitely go and pay final respects to my friend. Blessings to you.

  • I've never heard of that either. If sounds like some kind of silly thing that would have taken place in the 1700's or something in England where there was meaning in EVERYTHING you did. I wouldn't worry about. Go pay your respects. I'm sorry for your loss.

  • Its a old wives tale.. that if you go to a funeral while pregnant something will happen to the baby.

  • I went to 3 while I was pregnant in 2007. I really don't think there's anything wrong with it, you should go.
