They say if you have bad heartburn, you'll have a hairy baby. FALSE!!! I had pretty bad heartburn with DS, and he had some

I had terrible heartburn w/ DS and he was born with hair. Not real thick or anything, but he definitely had hair from the start. I kind of expect this one to be the same, but you never know. I was born with a head full of hair and my sister was born bald and stayed bald for a long time.

With ds i had terrible heartburn, and he came out with a TON of hair. The nurses in the hospital were saying he could be a little Jonas brother because he even had little sideburns. He did lose some of it but only around the hairline not too much else. This time i havent had it that bad, just after eating certain things i will get it a little. It will be interesting to see if this one has as much hair, or is bald :-)

I had zero heartburn with my first, and she was the only one with lots of hair. The rest of them have just had the average amount for newborns. I was pretty bald and my husband had lots of hair.....so it's just a guessing game what the next baby will come out with

I had no heartburn with DS and he had tons of thick wavy hair. I have had more heartburn this pregnancy, but not enough that I can complain about. So we'll see if this one has hair or not.

I had terrible heartburn with DD and she had a good amount of hair when she was born. My mom had 4 kids- all of us were bald- so I was not expecting that :)

I didn't have bad heartburn with DS1 and have only had it bad with this one twice so far (bad meaning tums don't help). DS1 had some peach fuzz when he was born and I have no idea what this one will have! My friend had really bad heartburn with her 2nd baby from the very beginning and she was born with a head full of hair! It isn't actually an old wives' tale, the hormone that causes hair growth is somehow associated with heartburn in pregnancy. That doesn't mean that heartburn always means lots of hair though! Just a higher occurrence.

I had the same amount of heartburn with DD and DS and they both were born with a full head of black hair! Funny because they are both super blonde kiddos: ) This time I've had the same amount of heartburn so I'm excited to see what this little one looks like! My guess is she will look exactly like her sister and brother (they looked identical as newborns)! Yay! Can't wait to meet her: )
