what are some of the wives tales that you have heard? i asked a question about this earlier and thought it would be fun to see how many are out there and how many my granny actually told im bored.
my granny has told all of us-if the baby is early in development, its getting out of the way for another one. so expect to be pregnant soon.
another one is if you get of your baby stuff, you will get pregnant again. lol im tellin you, we were told crazy wives tales growing up. what kind of wives tales were you told??

  • I've heard the same ones you have and a few more. For an ear ache find someone who has never senn their bio father, pee in a cup and scring it in the ear. For warts hide and bury a sour dishtowl. IF YOU SLEEP WITH DOGS YOU'LL WAKE UP WITH FLEAS...LOL THAT ONE MUST BE TRUE

  • I've heard you should put a piece of string across your pregnant belly when a full moon is out. Or is it a strand of hair? I don't know, but my mil is always telling me crazy stuff like that.

  • My grandmom and MOM told me ,if,your hands itch ,you will get money, if,your left eye keep jumping,you will get mad, if,you dream of fish,someone is pregnant,but,if,you dream of a baby someone is going to die.If, you got a earache,let someone blow smoke in your ear. The funny thing, I end up passing thes sayings to my children and grands.

  • If you sleep with a piece of "Groom's Cake" under your pillow, the man you dream about is the man you're going to marry.
