I was just wondering if this is true? Does having lots of heartburn mean your baby has alot of hair? has anyone experienced opposite of this? I know it is an old wives tale but i was just wondering what anyone else has experienced??

Did you have heartburn your whole pregnancy or when did you start to get the heartburn?

With my first dd.. i thought I would DIE from hb.. every single day for hours and hours I would have issues with the hearburn.. and she was born with a very tiny amount of hair. She is now 5 and she still has only gotten hair just past her chin!!! For me it didnt work. ~Kristin~

I don't know if it's true or not, but good grief, if it is, I'm going to be giving birth to a full b__wn monkey!

my heartburn started with my daughter at about 12 weeks when morning sickness started to wear off. with this one it was areound 8 weeks.

haha, jenice...that's really funny! I have uncontrollable heartburn day and night, no matter what I eat. But, this is my first baby, so I have no idea if it's truly related to baby's hair...

I had to take zantac and tums thru out my intire pregnancy. There was NOT a hair on my daughters head, she is 9 months and STILL bald. not true

Well women have disproven that here. But personally there is no way for me to know since I have had acid reflux disease since I was 11, and pregnancy has made it awful. I guess soon we'll see! I kind of want a bald baby-- all 5 of my brother's kids were bald so I'm kind of used to it. I'd be shocked if mine has hair.

up until about a wk ago (23 wks) i thought my baby was going to be bald, but if the old wives tale is true he will have a head full of hair and a full b__wn beard :) It's really weird b/c I have acid reflux and every since i've been preg it kind of went away, but now it's back in full swing

I had the worst heartburn in the world when I was pregnant, and my daughter had barely any hair!:)

I never had heartburn with my son (he's five now) and he came out with a small amount of hair, but I had heartburn with this pregnancy and she came out with a full head of hair an inch long. It started some time early in the 2nd tri I believe, and was never really bad. No pains from it, just chest pressure and the feeling of a lump in my throat. Not sure if it had anything to do with the hair on my daughter's head of not.

hehe, my mom had terrible heartburn with me when she was pregnant, and I came out with 3 inches of black hair! Anythings possible:) I'm hoping it's true, I've had bad heartburn, lol I want my baby to have a full head of hair! If not, hey he'll be gorgeous anyway.

I had 3 boys with full heads of dark hair and I had horrible heartburn from like 8 weeks on.. very true for me


KRISTINA - January 8

I had horrible heartburn with my son and he had a full head of hair and although it did change color over time, it never fell out. I read somewhere on-line that although its said to be a wives tale that heartburn means more hair, there was actually a study done confirming it.

i heard this to be true but i myself dont believe it cause all the wive tales...or wise tales lol that they said about me (if belly sits a certain way...if certain s_x babies come to you etc etc) were WRONG!!! but who knows...i have heard that one though
