    I was surprised by: Myth 7: I should tilt my lower body upward to help the sperm get to my egg.

    All the ladies at work always tell me to put  a pillow under my butt and hang out for 15 min lol!

    It worked for me too i got to know i am pregnant, just yesterday and we tried for the 1st time in march 
  • i was watching a tv show (Drop Dead Diva) and one of the girls is pregnant and burping like crazy so someone tells her that it means she's going to have an evil baby. And then i saw a "fun" fact that most serial killers are born in November and guess my due month!! so a little thought in my brain tells me i'm going to have an evil serial killer baby.... :/

    With my first baby i used to crave cheetos and my grandma told me that the baby gets the skin color of the food you eat the most. I really thought i was having a cheetoh-colored baby.
