Pregnant women should not attend funerals? corinescarnations 65 kids; Gibsonburg, Ohio 109 posts

I have just returned from my second funeral in this pregnancy. A friend of mine told me before I left that pregnant women are not suppose to attend funerals due to it being bad luck for the baby. Have you ever heard of this superstition? I have not felt well since coming home, but I think it is just my mind playing tricks on me since she told me this. What do you know about this?

Your mind is playing tricks on you. Just an old wives tale.

I've never heard of that..



I went to my grandfather's funeral in October, and I haven't had any abnormal maladies throughout the rest of my pregnancy. I'd say it's all in your head.

I've heard it, but like anything else it's just another old wives tale. We'd have to lock our pregnant asses in our rooms and practically starve if we listened to all the superstitions and advice we are given

havent heard that. weird.
i recently went to my uncles funeral...i loved him very much and would have considered it an insult to my cousins if i had not attended. however...i was so heartbroken and my hormones are so uncontrollable right now that i cried REALLY hard during the service...like way louder than anyone else...and i gave myself a migraine trying to muffle the noise i was making. it was actualy pretty terrible.
i dont believe in luck..but i do believe in migraines. take a tylenol with you.
