Hairy Baby!!!

The worst wive's tale I ever heard was the one where I was told that if I had indigestion or heartburn it meant that my baby was going to have tons of hair!

I have had SOOOOOOOOO many people come up to me and ask me if I had horrible heartburn and indigestion because my baby has so much beautiful black hair. They looked at me as though I was lying when I told them I didn't have tons of heartburn, etc.

What crazy wives tales have you been told?

I was just the opposite with my son. I had HORRIBLE heartburn!! Everybody told my that I was going to have a baby with a full head of hair but my son was born with very little hair at all! LOL

I was also told that because I was carrying the baby so high for so long that it would be a girl......strike 2!


So far this time, I have no morning sickness and no heartburn--thank GOD! The heartburn was the worst experience.

Ill post if I hear any new ones this time around!

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”

― Helen Nearing, The Good Life
