what food/pregnancy related urban legends have you heard?
In PR we call Oranges "Chinas" and straight hair "chino" so I was ordering fresh orange juice at my fave bakery when this random lady says that I shouldn't drink it unless I want my baby to be born with straight hair. Really? I have extremly curly hair and a strong DNA do you honestly think a glass of orange juice is going to trump my genes?
Another one that made me laugh was I was buying hot sauce for a BBQ and I do enjoy my hot sauce but I wasn't putting it on my meal at the time and this random man took the sauce bottle from my hand and said "I am doing your baby a favor; he will suffer from heartburn if you eat this while pregnant". I looked him dead in the eyes and said "I am buying this for BBQ I am going along with all the other spices I was asked for by the hostess. I was not planning on dumping the bottle on my steak Sir." and burst out laughing.
