33 week ultrasound showed hair on baby's head? Is this right

I have never heard this before. I went in today and the tech did a 3d/4d ultrasound and said my saon already has a ton of hair, has anyone been told this before? If so was your baby born with hair? alot or a little? I'm excited b/c my daughter didn't have hair until she was 2 years old.. Thanks and baby dust to all :-)

HI, my sister had u/s and they told her the same thing.  Actually I was there and we could all see it.  He was born on 1/09 and this kid has the most hair I have ever seen on a baby in my life.  Every time I look at him, I am shocked again by the amount of hair and the thickness of it.  No lie, he looks furry!;) But he only has it on his head, not hairy anywhere else!

Thanks for the info, Yes I could see the hair too, it was so weird to see. I guess the old wives tale is true for me  about heartburn and hair b/c I have never had heartburn before not even with my other pregnancy's, and this time around i have it all the time... Thanks again

I dont know about the heartburn, my sis didnt have a bit of it, but I have heard that too.  I had heartburn and its a good thing my kids are blonde, bc they would all look like monkeys what with all that hair all over their bodies;)

Yes, mine did at 29weeks.  Guess what...when she was born, she had so much hair it was down her neck!  It is possible.

My mother tells me a story of one of my brothers (there's my sister, the oldest boy, the middle boy, the youngest boy and myself)-this happens to be the middle boy - when he was born she says, he had such long pretty hair that all the nurses swore he was a pretty little girl and wanted to give him a bath and play with "her" (HIS) pretty hair... LOL till they found out he was a boy, then they prolly wanted ta chop it off. lol

They used to tease me with my DS and say he was gonna have an afro....kid had a head full of hair when he was born, so yeah it is right (and by the way that was with a regular u/s)!  Congrats

Don't have anything to add here...but just the thought of seeing the baby's hair this early is really sweet. :)

Interestingly, not at all!  I loaded up on tums and I had heartburn like twice while I was pregnant. Then again, I was very strict with what I ate.  I'd like to see pics of other babies born the same time as mine.  I don't know if there is a safe way to do it.  I'd Like to see Ariellia.  You can email me at ***@****
