Heartburn and Hair!



  • I did have lots of heartburn/indigestion, and my baby had a full head of hair!
  • I had lots of heartburn, but baby was a baldie
  • I had no heartburn, but a baby with lots of hair
  • I had no heartburn and my baby had no hair ;-)

So, IDK if you all know the old wives tale... apparently if you really suffer from heartburn during PGcy, your baby will have lots of hair. I have talked to a few people about it (all with hairy babies) and it seemed to be accurate every time! So I thought I'd start this poll ("scientific research" LOL) to see how much truth it really holds!

Can I vote other? Since I have two different answers. Both mine had a decent amount of hair at birth, I had no heartburn with Desmond and a ton with Eloise. So there are two different answers to the poll for me.

I had a some heartburn, I wouldn't call it a lot though and Luke was born with a full head of hair. Everyone at the hospital asked me if I had a lot of heartburn because of how much hair he had.

I need to vote other too. This time around I had a lot of heartburn and she has the least hair of the three. My second had a lot of hair, but I rarely had heartburn.

I didn't have heartburn a single second in my entire pregnancy and here was the resulting head of hair:

You could actually see her hair in my last 3 u/s's, lol. And, although it really has lightened up, it never fell out like people say it will either. That wives tale definitely wasn't true for me!

I would have to vote other.

I had terrible terrible terrible heartburn with Ray, and while he was born with hair... it was very little and fell out within the first week. I wonder if he would have had any hair if he went to term. The first hair he had when born was black, he was bald until he was like 18 months (thankfully he wasn't a girl), and now his hair is dark blonde.

I didn't have any heartburn with Isabella and she was a baldy ... but with Tristan I had so much heartburn and he had a lot of hair. You could even see it in the U/S it was so thick and dark! :)

So for me it was true! :)

There is actually a hormone that grows hair and causes heartburn, however you can also get tons of heartburn just from having a baby shove your stomach up.

I had a decent amount of heart burn.. It felt like alot considering I had never had it until I got prego with Simon. He did come out with hair and it has stayed though thinned out a bit as his head has grown.

I'm having horrible heartburn, but it was pretty much a given considering I had a hiatal hernia before I was pregnant (where the stomach pokes up through the diaphram), and added pressure was bound to make it a lot worse.
