    Just Wondered What "Old Wives Tales" People Have Heard! I Have Found Them To Be Parculiar! Here Are Some::

    Heartburn

    If a pregnant woman experiences heartburn throughout the 9 months of pregnancy, she’ll have a baby born with a full head of hair.

    Heart Rate

    If the baby’s heart rate is above 140 bpm, it is said that the baby will be a girl. If it is under 140 bpm, then it will be a boy

    Coffee

    If a baby is born with light-brown birthmarks, it is said that the mom drank too much coffee or had unfulfilled cravings while she was pregnant.

    Full Moon

    A full moon was believed to cause a woman to go into labor and give birth.


    Craaaaazy! But Interesting To Read! :wohoo::saywhat::lol:

    the full moon if you look at stats from labor and delivery wards they are always busier on a full moon obviously it doesnt make every pregnant women go into labor but from what ive read it does ring somewhat true lol

    I've heard if you reach to high or cross your arms across your tummy that the cord can get wrapped around the baby's neck and by crossing your arms you're cutting circulation

    The heartburn one was correct with my last. I suffered terrible heartburn and she came out with a full head of black hair whereas my twins before had the proper wispy blonde baby hair.

    I was just going to write this exact comment!! It says something that the hormones or whatever that your body gives out when you have heartburn causes Hair to grow. Its Crazy what our bodies can do!
