Pregnant? Worried about all those pregnancy myths out there? For the longest time women who became pregnant thought they had to start eating certain foods, avoid eating certain foods, to exercise a certain way, not practice particular exercises, etc. Today we are going to set the record straight for all you moms-to-be.

Below, BBC News.com provided a list of those pregnancy myths that should be followed:

  • Eating for two results in unnecessary weight gain
  • Drink 1% or fat free milk vs. whole milk
  • Spike up nutritional value in what you eat
  • Yes, vitamins are a MUST
  • Add 200 calories to your diet in the last 90 days of pregnancy
  • Lose baby weight in a healthy way
  • Extreme dieting will lead to lack of breast milk
  • It is more difficult to get pregnant when overweight or obese (BMI over 30)
  • Should not have to change their exercise routine
  • Yoga and water aerobics are great additions to any work out regime
  • Prenatal massages are very helpful

Professor Mike Kelly, director of the centre for public health excellence at NICE, said: “In today’s society women are bombarded by often conflicting advice on what constitutes a healthy diet and how much physical activity they should do during pregnancy and after birth.”
