Back in the olden days, people didn’t have things like ultrasounds and blood tests and actualy science to help them through their pregnancies. They relied on stories and anecdotes and the little old lady who could smell a baby on a lady from a mile away.

Now days, when you can find out you’re pregnant before you even miss a period and determine the sex from an ultrasound before you’re even half way through your pregnancy, we don’t need that little old lady predicting baby's gender or telling us that our baby will be born witha  head full of hair anymore.

But, it’s fun to listen to her anyway.
