The uterus is the largest muscle in the woman’s body? WOW!
Some believe that if the father of the baby puts on weight during the pregnancy than the baby will be a girl and if he doesn’t put on weight it will be a boy.
4.3 Babies are born every second!
The average umbilical cord is 2 feet long but may be as long as 4 feet!
On average, you will go through 7,300 diapers by your baby’s second birthday (Whoa, better get some stock in Huggies!)
A newborn baby’s head accounts for about ¼ of its entire weight!
The umbilical cord can carry 300 quarts of fluid per day (talk about an exchange system between mom and baby!)
Babies are born with 300 bones, but by the time we are an adult we only have 206 bones. Where’d they go?! Some bones fuse together as we grow.
During pregnancy, the uterus expands to 500 times its normal size (YIKES!)
Some believe that if your baby’s heart rate is greater than 140 it is a girl and if it is less than 140 it is a boy.
Blood travels through the umbilical cord at 4 miles per hour.
Some believe that if you have heartburn your baby will have a full head of hair. In fact, researchers at Johns Hopkins University researched this and found that 82% of women with heartburn had hairy babies!
After 30 weeks your baby can see light through your stretched-out skin. He can probably even tell the difference between day and night!
Some people believe that if you are carrying your baby “low” that you are having a boy and if not it is a girl.
Ever heard of testing your urine to check the sex of your baby? Some believe you can by taking a sample of your urine and mix it with Drano. If your urine turns bluish yellow, brown, black or blue you will have a boy. If it turns green, blue or doesn’t change at all you are having a girl.
