Ultrasound + Wives tale

So.. I'm sure by now we've all heard about how heartburn = a hairy baby.. well, today during my ultrasound the tech commented TWICE how much hair she had haha! (my heartburn has been NUTS lately!) the tech showed me a view of the back of her neck and you could see the hair floating in the amniotic fluids (like when you go swimming.. haha!)

We also learned that she's short (big surprise, DS is below the 5th% for height and I'm hardly 5'0). Oh yes, and the tech said she had a big head! haha! (measuring at 33w) Just thought I'd share Smile

It was a growth scan, I'll probably have at least one more before she's born. Hypertension can often cause babies to be 'smaller' so they like to keep an eye on growth to make sure she's at a reasonable size.

Her hair was crazy!! The tech was like do you see that.. pointed to it.. and I was like yeah.. soo.. she's like that's all hair! haha.. then she showed me a different view (from behind her neck) and her hair was moving as if I had a fan in my belly, it was SO funny haha!

That is funny b/c last week at my ultrasound the tech pointed out the same thing...her hair floating around in the amniotic fluids. She even printed a picture out for me Smile I've got heartburn like crazy too but don't believe in the old wives tale about it b/c I've had it before bad & my baby came out bald & didn't get hair till he was 2....LOL

how cool!

For the record, my DD had quite a bit of hair & I had a ton of heartburn with her. Have had it with this one too so we'll see if he comes out with hair also.

Here too! DD is 2.5 and has just enough for some stringy little pigtails. I have it bad again, but I am definitely not expecting this one to be hairy because of it!:D

We saw DD's hair on her 4D u/s as well and she was born with a head full of hair. Smile I dunno about hair on this little guy but I sure do have the heartburn. Anytime he pushes right below my ribs I feel it comes on.

I will be curious to see her newborn pics and see how much hair she has.
