Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Heartburn

O.k. the old wives's tale is that if you have heartburn when you are pregnant then you will have a baby that has a lot of hair. Well this baby better have the fullest head of hair that I have ever seen. I now get heartburn whenever I eat. It doesn't matter what I eat, how little I eat, or when I eat. I get Heartburn. Just this morning I had a plain bagel with butter and a glass of Red Raspberry Tea and what do you think happened? Yep, you guessed it, I got heartburn.

Now believe me I am really not trying to complain because I love it when my babies are born with a full head of hair. I just don't care for the discomfort during the time that I am having to experience this wonderful feeling. My first born had so much hair she looked like a Monchi Chi Doll when she was born. It must have been all that heartburn I had during her pregnancy. Hers was so bad that when I would drink water I would get it. That truly is no joke. One night when I was about 7 months along I thought I was going into labor and my dear mother explained to me that it was only heartburn. O.k. It was my first pregnancy so I didn't know what I was doing. So I am very curious to see this new little one's head. Will it be full of hair or bald like it's daddy?

Are saltine crackers not helping anymore or do they give you heartburn too?

Nothing works for that horrid heartburn!
Have you found out what you are having yet? My friend did but kept it a secret! Today she will have her baby and tell the world it is a girl, hehe. She told a few of us, but even her hubby doesn't know!
