A pregnant mother in Chongqing got a recipe from an old man, saying that eating “olive pork belly” can protect the fetus and eliminate fetuses.
So at the 33rd week of pregnancy, I asked my family to make a bowl of olive pork belly, hoping to remove the fetal poison and let the baby be born healthy.
Unexpectedly, not long after eating, the pregnant mother had abnormal fetal movement, followed by frequent uterine contractions, accompanied by severe abdominal pain and hypoxia, and was rushed to the hospital by her family.
After the doctor’s examination, the pregnant woman was found to have signs of premature birth and unstable fetal heart rate, and she was immediately sent to the ICU for emergency treatment.
Of course, there is no clear basis for the series of consequences caused by pregnant women eating olive pork belly, because there is no problem with the two foods themselves.
The focus of our discussion today is not the olive pork belly, but the so-called home remedies such as what to eat to get rid of fetal poison, how deceiving people, especially during pregnancy critical time period.
Eat more fruits during pregnancy, and the baby will have better skin in the future
There is no scientific evidence that eating more fruit during pregnancy is good for the baby’s skin.
Fruits are rich in vitamins, but also contain fructose. Excessive consumption is not good for the fetus and pregnant women, and may cause gestational diabetes.
The three major factors that affect a person’s skin quality are: genetics, living environment, and acquired maintenance, which have nothing to do with eating more fruits.
Don’t eat spicy food during pregnancy, the baby will get pink eye
There is no scientific basis for this claim. Chili is a vegetable rich in vitamins, and reasonable intake is good for pregnant women.
What’s more, all the food eaten goes into the stomach, has nothing to do with the uterus, and will not have any effect on the baby in the uterus.
During pregnancy, expectant mothers generally have no appetite due to changes in body hormone levels. Chili peppers can stimulate appetite, but it’s okay to eat it, just don’t have anything to do with your baby!
Don’t eat rabbit meat during pregnancy, the baby is prone to cleft lip
As the old saying goes, a pregnant woman must not eat rabbit meat, otherwise the baby will have a cleft lip.
According to this logic, if you eat chicken during pregnancy, the baby will cry, and if you eat pork, will the baby be stupid? There is no scientific basis for this claim.
Rabbit meat has the characteristics of high protein and low fat, and it is also rich in lysine needed by the human body. Pregnant women eat more of it, which is beneficial and harmless.
As for harelips, most of them are caused by family heredity and environmental factors, as well as viruses, bacteria, etc., and cute little rabbits do not take this responsibility.
Eating goose eggs during pregnancy can eliminate fetal poisoning
There is no scientific evidence that goose eggs can detoxify fetuses.
The so-called fetal poison is actually just some eczema on the skin that is prone to occur in newborns. It is not directly related to what pregnant women eat, it is related to genetics, hormone levels and other factors.
Goose eggs are rich in protein. Eating goose eggs in moderation during pregnancy can enhance the immunity of pregnant women and promote fetal development. As for the rest, don’t think too much about it.
Don’t talk in the first three months of pregnancy, otherwise the baby will miscarry
Talking about the first three months of pregnancy has nothing to do with miscarriage. Under normal circumstances, the first three months of pregnancy are the critical period for fetal development and the most unstable and prone to miscarriage.
The reason why most people choose not to talk about it is that most people hope that the fetus is stable and then tell everyone, so as to avoid problems and have fun, it is purely personal opinion, and there is nothing to say about miscarriage. relation.
Whether there is a miscarriage or not depends on genetic factors and the physical condition and daily behavior of the pregnant mother.
Girls make pregnant women ugly
In the past, old people used to say that a mother who was pregnant with a daughter would become uglier and have more butterfly spots on her face.
What a ridiculous lie! The gender of the child does not affect the mother’s appearance.
The freckles on the face during pregnancy are caused by changes in hormone levels in a woman’s body after pregnancy. Of course, it is also related to factors such as poor sleep quality, which will gradually recede after childbirth.
If you eat soy sauce when pregnant, your baby will turn black
The black and white of baby’s skin is related to heredity, not necessarily related to eating soy sauce. It is impossible for the pigment of soy sauce to enter the fetus through the placenta. Therefore, eating soy sauce has nothing to do with the baby’s skin.
Soy sauce is just a condiment and can be eaten in moderation.
Alkaline constitution is easy to have boys
There are many folk sayings that judge the birth of boys and girls, and it is very popular. For example: a boy with an alkaline constitution, a girl with an acidic constitution, a sour girl, a girl with a fat waist, a son with a pointed belly…
There are also some superstitious mother-in-laws who use various alkaline recipes to adjust their bodies before their daughter-in-law is pregnant, and work hard to conceive a baby boy.
Actually, the acid-base constitution itself is a pseudo-concept, and it has nothing to do with having boys or girls.
The human body itself is a weak alkaline constitution, too high or too low will cause physical discomfort, how can “alkaline substances” be changed at will.
A girl with a round belly and a boy with a pointed belly
This statement is unreliable. The shape of a pregnant woman’s belly has nothing to do with the gender of the child. It only depends on the size of the pregnant woman, the shape of the pelvis, the shape of the spine, and the thickness of the abdominal muscles.
In addition, it is also related to the size of the fetus. If the fetus is large, the mother’s belly may be pointed, and if the fetus is small, the mother’s belly may be relatively flat.
There are many legends and remedies in the folk, but most of the remedies have not been scientifically demonstrated and have no scientific basis. Therefore, don’t step into the “pit” of the remedies. Preferred.
