  • Morning sickness is VERY common in the beginning of pregnancy...so if that was true there would be millions of people with babies that looked nothing like them. Sounds like an old wives tale to me.

  • I never heard of such a thing. I was sick with both, and everyone says they look like me. Puking doesn't determine your appearance....DNA does.

  • No ms with my daughter and she looks just like me. MS for three months, non-stop, with my son and he's the spitting image of his Dad.

    So I'd have to go with no, it's not true.

  • 19 weeks of morning sickness when I was pregnant with my little clone! None at all with my one who looks just like Daddy :-)

  • No ms with #1 and he looks like his papa. With the second two ms the whole time and still look like papa. We'll see with this one but I'm guessing he too will look like his papa.

  • I had morning sickness throughout the whole thing and my son would be a dead ringer for me at his age if we put a dress on him. I've even confused the inlaws with pictures of myself as a toddler and pictures of DS! Definitely an old wive's tale!
