You shouldn't lift your arms above your head

FALSE

The concern commonly cited around this myth, is that the umbilical cord could become wrapped around the baby's neck.  While this does sometimes occur, it is typically caused by fetal movement, and has nothing to do with mom's activity while pregnant.  You may want to take it easy on  lifting heavy materials in general, but it is widely thought that there is no need to spend the next nine months with your arms at shoulder level!
