The few things I have read say that it is important (like with all exercises) to make sure you Continue to BREATH. Sometimes when people exercise with weights overhead they tend to hold their breath. So, just don't forget about consistent breathing.

This is definitely one of those old wives' tales. Stretching or reaching above your head does nothing to the baby, so you should be okay.

This is an old wives tale. Nothing bad will happen if you reach above your head. So many old italian ladies told me this when I was pregnant.

Good Luck!!!
