chuckle My experience with Wives Tales

During my pregnancy & up until the very end of it, I carried my baby very high. I had numerous people tell me that they were sure I was having a girl........

I also had the worst heatburn throughout the months that you could ever imagine. With this news, I was told I was having a baby that would have a great head of hair.......hee hee !!

I had a beautiful baby boy that was practically bald !!



I forgot one thing...... He had hiccups from the days he was possibly old enough to have them inside me. A lot of people thought this was strange. I had so many people tell me to take it easy and that I was putting stress on the baby and thats why he had hiccups all of the time. Well, he is 4 1/2 now and when he is going through a growth spurt, he still gets hiccups !! Always has..... Im curious to see when this will stop.

BTW, working had nothing to do with him hicupping. At the time, I was a manager of a gas station so I talked to many people who, of course, offered their opinions. Just proves.....listen to everything but dont believe everything you hear.


Anyone else ????????

Hiccups

My daughter had them ALL the time in utero and then ALL the time after she was born. She still gets them frequently (she's 2 today!!) but now she just says "Mommy, I ave iccyups"
Doesn't seem to bother her that much, in fact I remember reading somewhere that hiccups don't bother babies like they bother adults. Don't know how old they have to be until they are bothered??

Oh, the one my Mom told me was night to put your heads over your head. I used to play volleyball with my husband some times and after I was pregnant she acted like I couldn't as in her book you weren't supposed to put your hands above your heads. Not sure who started that one but I thought it ridiculous and didn't believe it and of course you know I was right and Mom was wrong in that instance. My Mom is a southern woman and had lot of those old wives tales she would tell me when I was pregnant even the one about the cat stealing a child's breath.

I didn't have cats at the time but I was told of that, too.

I can't wait to check out that website again.

Thanks for renewing this thread. It brought back some good memories.

I had one cat at the time she said the thing about the cats. It is always so neat to relive old memories. Glad I made you want to look at the old website. Hope you have a great day, it is so much fun to think back on some good memories from the past.

i had heartburn MOST of the time while pregnant with my daughter 22 years ago. my mother in law told me that the baby would have a head full of hair. she came out slicker than an onion.
i did carry her high, and my mother told me that usually meant a girl, which was true. i carried both of mine different. from behind, you couldn't tell i was pregnant with my daughter, she was high and i was all belly, but you could when i pregnant with my son. i gained in my hips, like a pear.there are 12 years difference between them, so i'm not sure how much of that was my age (lol).

i almost forgot this....my mother in law also told me not to pick up anything above my waist and not to reach over my head because it would wrap the cord around the baby's neck. i thought "plfff, yeah right". i worked in a bakery at the time, and had a boss that insisted on making me and another girl work a frozen food delivery day. she always bragged about how she unloaded trucks and put up frozen food when she was pregnant-she conveniently forgot to include that she had been carrying twins and delivered on one live. the other died in uetero. anyway, the other girl refused to put up any of our frozen delivery on the day that she worked because she had miscarried several times before, but i am easily pushed around i guess, so i put it up on the day that i worked. i did use a chair to climb on so i wasn't reaching over my head, but some of the boxes were 40 lbs that i was picking up. to make it short, my daughter never crowned, because the cord was wrapped around my her head 3 times, and after every contraction, it would pull her back up. they had to use forceps. needless to say, with my son, my husband refused to even let me carry in an 8lb gallon of milk!!
