OMG! My Little Girl Has SO Much Hair! Crazy Ultrasound Pics....


I had a new ultrasound done on Friday (they're making me do two a week now for NST and biophysical) and during the ultrasound, the tech pointed out that LO had a significant amount of hair. Lol. One of the pics is her head and all the little lines coming out from it by the arrow is hair. The other one that shows hair is the one of her foot with little lines beyond the toes. She's in a breech position and at that angle her head is behind her foot so the hair is visible. She showed me the hair at the front first which is in the foot pics and its a lot but fairly short, but when she spun around to the back or head, the length of her hair is insane, the other PIC doesn't even do it justice. She literally has a mullet. Lmao. I wish you ladies could if seen it real time, BC like I said the pics don't do justice to what I actually saw. Like I might need to pack ponytails to the hospital in her bag lol BC I could probably put it in one. I was completely bald as a newborn.

Have any of you been showed this amount of hair and did lo actually have tons of hair? What is everyones experiences with lo hair in US's? Curious as to what to expect.....

Oh, I forgot to mention that I'm only 34 weeks! Does that mean it'll be nearly to her shoulders by the time I'm full term? He he he.....

There's an old wives' tale that if a baby has a lot of hair the mum has worse heartburn.n probably not true but interesting to know if you're suffering badly with heartburn?

I've had some heartburn, but nothing rolaids doesn't cure quickly. But interestingly enough that wives tales actually has some scientific research backing it. Just BC you get heartburn doesn't mean that your life will have hair, but there is a hormone that is created when their hair is forming that can potentially cause heartburn. Unfortunately, one does not equal the other but they're are links between the two. Fortunately I have been spared of the crazy heartburn thus far...hopefully that continues til dd

That's really interesting! Both my children were born with a reasonable head of hair and I did have some heartburn. Glad to hear you haven't suffered too badly!

Like I said research has showed that just BC you have heartburn does not equal a head full of hair but there are links between heartburn and hair. Heartburn in itself is a common symptom of pregnancy even with bald baby BC of all the internal shifting and the acid simply not having any where to go, but some heartburn or excessive heartburn during pregnancy CAN indicate hair BC while it is growing it causes you to produce a hormone that increases stomach acid, ie heartburn will be present esp. BC of the stomach already being inclined to give you heartburn. Its interesting to say the least

I had bad heartburn with my dd and she was bald til she was one!!! However with ds I had heartburn 10x worst then my daughters, even prescription grade meds did nothing (cry worthy pain), and he was born with a head full of hair!

Heartburn can be a side effect of estrogen and estrogen helps hair production so there is def some degree of truth scientifically!

OP those shots are ADORABLE, her little toes are so perfect.
