Im Chinese but not pregnant.  I’m sure I’ll hear it all when the time comes.   I heard you’re not supposed to eat too much watermelon and about not leaving the house for a full month also after the baby is born.

@regberadaisy: I’m not Chinese (Irish here) I find this completely fascinating, I would love to hear more, I won’t be scared!

Out of curiosity, are you doing all of these things?

I’m Chinese but not pregnant…. When my sister was pregnant my mom told her she wasn’t allowed to use knives/scissors/sharp objects because it would hurt the baby? She was also told to not look at “ugly” babies/baby pictures as it would result in an “ugly” baby. Yes, aren’t these things hilarious!?!

@yellowshoe: what!  how is not using knives even possible cause as far as most Asian couple I know, the woman is the one to do the cooking, including prep.

@pinkshoes: lol. my mom also believes that the MAN is supposed to wait on the woman 24/7. Yes, she  calls me an idiot because I do the majority of the cooking/cleaning in our house and that I need to “teach” my FH better.

Don’t worry, my sister still did plenty of cutting/slicing during her pregnancy and her baby turned out happy and healthy =)

Another chinese pregnant bee here!  I have heard all the superstitions associated with pregnancy.  And I am not the superstitios one at all.  Luckily, my sister already has two boys and she’s not superstious like me, so my mom has chilled and relaxed on alot of the “rules”. 

Funny, at dim sum yesterday, I never realized how many dishes have shellfish in it, especially shrimp.  Yet it didn’t stop me!

By The Way, we are month twins from our wedding, what’s your EDD?  Mine is March 25th.
