As many of you are aware, I am always deeply, (and often vocally) suspicious of wives’ tales and superstitions. Thats why I found this slideshow on Scientific American both fun and interesting. They took a hard scientific look at several common myths about pregnancy. Suprisingly, some of the myths look like they might be true. As many of my patients are either pregnant or trying to be, I thought that you would all find it interesting as well.
