  • I've never heard anything like that....I went through an eclipes while pregnant and was fine. What religion is he and his family? Maybe that has something to do with it?

  • Never heard of such a thing. Sounds like a bunch of superstition to me and not something I would worry about.

  • What?!?! I think it's a lot of weird superstition myself, but if you have yellow underwear and a safety pin and it makes you (or your family) feel better, there certainly isn't any harm in humoring them. Still, there would probably be some scientific evidence on this by now, and it'd be on every maternity website and in every book and magazine if that were true. :)

  • I've heard of the red version, I haven't heard of using yellow.
    They say to wear a red ribbon around your belly and a safety pin for the same reason lol
    it's all old wives tales
