How do you know if your baby will have a head full of hair at birth andcan you tell by ultrasound pucs?
Hair ==>Cute images: Let me start with this: looking for hair is not a reason to do or prolong an ultrasound. However, as someone who has done countless ultrasound studies, I have seen fetuses with hair on their heads floating in the fluid.
