    I agree with all of the above. And it seems that there isn't much left to eat. But on the safe side, I tried to follow those that make sense.

    I was also told to avoid eating goose, duck, shrimp and crab - if you want your baby to have good skin. Since I was carrying a girl, I thought I might as well follow just to be save.

    Hey, did you guys get the drink a lot of milk, so baby's skin will be, well what else, pearly white, and then eat tomatoes for rosy cheeks?

    Of course, know a woman who swear that the reason her son is dark is because she drank too much tea while she was pregnant

    I did research on this topic for my MPhil last year. Mutton is said to cause epilepsy, tofu is said to make the baby's complexion beautiful, as well as bird's nest.

    I was told to avoid snake, shrimp, & crab; watermelons and other cooling fruit.

    Told to avoid - frightening movies; moving house, hammering, sewing on the bed.

    Things to do:

    1) Buy a beautiful baby poster and think good thoughts

    2) Walk a lot, especially up and down stairs

    I didn't hear orange is cooling, but I was told to definitely avoid bananas and watermelons.

    I ate bird's nest throughout my pregnancy. It helped me sleep better, be less stressful, and eased my sickness.

    Hi Valencia,

    Birds nest is also good for the baby to have a good skin.

    Did you cook it as soup? or the ready one in a bottle that you just spoon it out.

    Thanks.

    I would suggest taking some of these with a grain of salt. For example, I was told to avoid mutton because in Chinese it sounds very similar to epilepsy and therefore thought to cause epilepsy! Not very scientific approach...
