Old Wives Tales

1. Don't hang out the washing as raising your arms above your head can cause the umbilical cord to wrap around the baby's neck and strangle it;

2. If you are carrying high then it's a girl, if you are carrying low then it's a boy;

3. If you get a lot of heartburn, then the baby will be born hairy;

4. Find a new home for the cat - cat's can smother a baby or give it diseases;

5. Don't look at a mouse when you are pregnant or your baby will be born with a hairy birthmark;

6. Adding Drano to a sample of your urine can reveal the gender of your baby;

7. Don't drink coffee or your baby's growth will be stunted; and

8. Don't eat strawberries or your baby will be born with a red birthmark.

You're not an old wife, you're a young wife. I think. Are you actually hitched at this point?

Well, I think it's a waste of medical research dollars, but it turns out that there really IS a link between heartburn and hairy babies...
