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.
