Old Wives' Tales....

How many people actually believe in Old Wives' Tales? If you do which one's? I know that there are so many.

Example: If a woman during her pregnancy has heartburn the baby will be born with hair. (Side note - I had heartburn every night with my last baby and the boy came out with a full head of hair.)

  • Wives tales are a crock of crap. It is sheer coincidence that some of these come out "true". I've heard so many people say they had a ton of heartburn and a a bald baby...yada yada.

  • I don't believe in them, but the heartburn one and the heartbeat were both right for me. I had heartburn with both my sons and they both had a full head of hair - even my youngest who was born 4 weeks early had so much hair all the nurses were amazed!! I didn't have it all that bad with dd and she had very little hair when born - although it is down to her bottom now!!

    The heartbeat was right too - boys were in the 140's my entire pregnancy and dd was in the 160's.

  • i never had heartburn, and my daughter came out with tons of hair..it was down to her bum by the time she was 2.5yrs old

    the one about babys heart beat worked for me tho..(high means girl, low means boy), was right for my sisters 2 kids too..
    same with the way we both carried

  • I don't mean to sound bitchy in my response ( re-read it and I sounded that way) but I'm 11 weeks pregnant and EVERYONE wants to play the stupid wives tale game with me and I just DON"T believe it. It's annoying me!! lol.
