While going to see your baby at a scan is exciting, you don’t find out much about what they will be like when they are born from the grainy images.
But one mum discovered her baby had lots of hair because she could see it on the ultrasound.
Lauren Deacon, 24, was shocked when the sonographer revealed white lines on her 34-week scan photo were her baby’s hair.
Baby Blake was born in July last year and she arrived with a full head of thick dark hair.
Now, ten months on, Blake has thick brown locks to die for.
Lauren, from Reading, Berkshire, said: ‘I didn’t even know hair could be picked up on an ultrasound.
‘We were given a photo with an eagle eye view of her skull and there are white lines which are her hair follicles.
‘My husband Steven, 29, and I assumed it would fall out by the time she arrives but she was born with a thick black head of hair.
‘It’s been forever growing since and it is gorgeous.
‘I am very jealous of her curls!’
Blake’s dad is half Filipino and Lauren thinks that’s where the thick hair came from.
She said: ‘I assume she has inherited her hair from her dad.
‘Everyone always compliments her hair and says it is beautiful.
‘They are so surprised by her age and assume she is older than she is.’
There is an old wives’ tale that those who have a lot of heartburn during pregnancy have babies with lots of hair, but Lauren says that didn’t happen in her case and it was a big surprise.
She said: ‘I didn’t have any heartburn during the pregnancy so it didn’t apply to me.’
