Ruth predicted that the baby will be a boy because of a pregnancy old wives tale...

Stacey Solomon is expecting her and Joe Swash's first baby together, and she's been very open about her experiences of pregnancy.

During yesterday's episode of Loose Women, the panel were discussing developing hair on your stomach during pregnancy. The conversation was in reaction to Stacey's Instagram post about growing 'thick, wirey' black hairs on the area.

Speaking about the issue, Ruth Langsford said: "It is very common, okay, so you don’t have to worry about it. It’s increased levels of hormones, Estrogen in particular can cause hair to grow in unexpected areas.

"The hair growth should return to normal within six months after giving birth."

I think I’m pregnant with a Furby 🤣 I need to know... Did anyone else’s belly just suddenly become covered in fur? Im not sure if you can see it but all of the grainy little lines are blonde hairs that I’ve never had before and now I’ve now started sprouting some lovely thick, wirey black ones around my belly button. I’ve always had my hair tummy snail trail which is a line of hair that practically goes from my cleavage all the way done to my hoo-ha but never an all over fuzz 😂😂 i’m not upset by it one bit I’ve always loved my, furrier than most, body, I’m just so fascinated as to why this happens? What does it mean? Is it to keep the Furby warm? 😂😂 Any incites are much appreciated (I think, as long as they’re not scary, if you have something scary to say, DON’T my anxiety can’t take it 🤣)
