Almost all pregnant women who are fond of needlework dream of doing something for their baby with their own hands. Although those who love to knit must have faced prejudice in their address — for some reason it is believed that knitting during pregnancy is prohibited. However, this is not so — in any case, it can be stated with confidence that there are no medical contraindications to knitting “in position”.
The whole point here is the belief that if a woman carrying a child knits, then knots will appear on the umbilical cord of the child or he will be born with an entanglement. However, this is nothing more than superstition, since no statistical evidence has been found for this fact. The formation of such a belief took place at a time when they knitted in a stuffy room and at the same time sat for a long time. Today, pregnant women may well knit and crochet — after all, this hobby has a calming effect, and besides, it is exciting and interesting. In addition, this is how a woman can demonstrate the first concern for her own baby.
Knitting is the most common, especially since it, like crocheting, is not at all contraindicated for pregnant women. A mother who is fond of knitting can independently prepare a lot of necessary things for the future baby, including hats, blouses, booties, socks and even blankets. As a rule, natural materials are used for such things — linen, cotton or wool, which means that your baby will be comfortable and cozy in them. If you want to prepare a serious dowry, then take into account the rapid growth of the child — it is best if you prepare little things of different sizes, including those for growth.
You should not deny yourself your favorite hobby, based only on some superstitions. However, during pregnancy, you should approach your hobby thoughtfully. Knitting must certainly be in good light, and the room itself should be well ventilated. You should not sit in an uncomfortable position — it is best to put a pillow under your feet or somehow raise them. This will keep the blood from pooling in your legs if you sit too long in one position. You need to knit, avoiding fatigue, while the hobby must certainly alternate with walks in the air. In any case, knitting should not be taken as a compulsory job, because it is better if it brings you pleasure.
