I need a good laugh today.

What are some of the ridiculous wives tales you have heard about getting pregnant and birth?

  • If you have a lot of heartburn your kids will be born with lots of hair. If you crave salty treats while preggo you are having a boy, sugary treats while preggo it's a girl. Oh and my fave, don't lift your hands above your head while preggo or the cord will wrap around babies neck... :)

  • Just heard one on here, a woman was asking if she could keep from getting pregnant by peeing after sex.

  • I know right like a cleaning product can predict the gender of a baby. Here's another one. When a pregnant woman goes to your house you put a spoon under one couch cushion and a fork under the other if shes sits over the spoon its a girl .. if she sits over the fork its a boy.
