  • I don't know about the height thing, but like the other mom my feet grew a 1/2 of a size. But can I just say that is the least of my issues... my hips, thighs and mind will never be the same! lol

  • What??? FALSE! I have never heard that and it is definitely not true. You do lose height eventually, but that's not until old age sets in! Nothing related to having babies.

  • Umm, I've had four kids and I'm 5'5 so as far as I can remember I was NEVER 5'9!!! lol

  • It is false, but I can see where it might have originated, that the developing baby takes calcium. I've also heard that for every baby you lose a tooth, which would have originated from the same reason. I've had two babies and have not lost height nor teeth.

  • False. I had three kids. My height is the same. My weight is within about 7 pounds. My teeth are still there. The only differnce is that my stomach muscles were separated-permanently. No flat tummy but its still not too bad. Oh well....

  • False....however you will be slightly taller in the morning than at night due to the effects of gravity during the day :)
