Its been a while since I posted and there have been some major changes in my life. In November last year when I though I was suffering from yet another common cold, I was actually starting to grow a tiny little life... yep I was actually pregnant!!

I'm now almost 30 weeks along and starting to get things organised for our little bundle of joy! Along with my partner this past bank holiday Monday I've decorated the living room and have two walls in the bedroom that I want to paint a deep shade of purple before I set up the moses basket ready for the baby. But someone at work told me that its bad luck to set up the nursery before the little one actually arrives, so it got me thinking about old wives tales and baby superstitions.

Here are some of the ones I've come across which searching today:
  • Choosing the pram before the baby is born is quite safe, but it must not be delivered to the home until after the baby is born.
  • In parts of North Yorkshire it is the custom when visiting the new baby for the first time, to place a silver coin in it's hand.
  • Carrying a new baby three times around the house will protect the child from colic.
  • It was also believed that teething troubles could be eased if the gums were rubbed with the mother's gold wedding ring.
