crossing your legs during 3rd tri?


Hello

Well my nan and mum keep telling me off for crossing my legs, my nan seems to think that i will squish the babys head??

does anyone else cross there legs and has anyone been told by there mw or health professional not to do it? i do it automatically, i dont even realise im doing it half the time, its some times how i feel most comfortable?

my mw said that its best if i dont, because of blood flow reasons, she didnt mention squashing bub

i get dead legs & cramps alot so she suggested that'd help. x

you aren't crushing your baby's head lol!! Anything that is uncomfortable for the baby is going to hurt you when you try to do it I am just amazed that you CAN cross your legs!! I have to sit like a bloke now!!! lol

I got told to keep my legs together by my MW lol.

I can't see it being anything to do with squashing baby's head if you get told not to do it, more to do with blood flow xxx

I cant actually cross mine anymore due to spd, but I know what you mean about doing it automatically- my body has tried to trick me several times and it's when the seering pain strikes I realise what I have done lol...(not so funny at the time)

But you shouldn't cross your legs as its bad for your circulation, can cause/ worsen varicose veins and aid in the development of blood clots -as for harming baby directly -I dont think so, but then I am no expert.
