  • They used to sa not to raise your hands above your head. Otherwise you might strangle the baby with the cord.

    Like it's connected to your arms at all!

  • Not lifting your arms over your head. Don't sit on cold marble.

  • I heard something about not eating peppermint. Not sure if there is truth to that or not

  • If you have a lot of heartburn your baby will be born with lots of hair.

  • Aneya, it IS an old wives' tale. Heartburn is NOT from a headfull of hair but due to the rampaging hormones. BUT, I had heartburn so bad I actually vomited on the anesthesiologists shoes as they prepped me for an emergency C-section with my son and HE had a full head. The heartburn with my daughter was also killer and SHE had a full head of hair too.

  • If you carry high it's a girl, if you carry low it's a boy. My son was high, my daughter low.
