Well with the great news for Lisa and Jack I started thinking of all the funny stories and old wives tales I have heard about pregnancy. tongue.gif blink.gif

With this being a worldwide site ther must be lots of funnies out there.

Here are a couple to get us going. rolleyes.gif

My Grandma could tell if it was going to be a boy or a girl by threading a needle with cotton (not nylon) and holding it above the ladies tummy. If the needle started spinning clockwise it would be a girl and if it went anticlockwise it would be a boy.
She told me she had never been wrong!!! laugh.gif rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif

When my mother was having me she had a craving to eat coal - very odd ph34r.gif ohmy.gif

It doesn't seem to have done me any harm, and it may explain why I fell in love with Paul - his father was a miner for 20 years ohmy.gif wink.gif laugh.gif tongue.gif

Can't wait to read some of the other weird and wonderful tales.

Oooh, I love this topic.

This is a link to the Chinese Lunar Calendar which predicts the sex of the baby based on your age and month of conception (see the instructions at the top of the link page).

It was not right for me, but still fun!

Would love to hear more pregnancy stories!! I'm sure there's plenty around! cool.gif

Nothing out of the ordinary for me, except I really like to eat green beans. The doc said it was probably the sodium(salt) in them. Who knows I still love green beans biggrin.gif tongue.gif laugh.gif ohmy.gif

Lori,

I tried the calendar "it was right on all three times" go figure!!!

Here is a good one right after the baby is born - My grandmother told my mom to rub my head to have strong hair growth ( of course you must go counter clockwise or it won't work) ! huh.gif

That is odd in a good way, Margaret!
I don't have any funny stories of pregnancy,
since I never had children of my own.
but my Mother and I shared the same birthday.
Now what are the chances of that happening? huh.gif
