  • It's an old wive's tale. My daughter had a TON of hair and the only time I had heartburn was when I was really stressed out, so hair definitely wasn't the cause!

  • I think it is an old wives tale, but it was right for me! I had to be prescribed medication the last two months of my pregnancy because the HB was SOOOOO bad, and my DD had a long, beautiful hair when she was born. LOL When my water broke the nurse was "checking" me and she said, "Oh, wow, your water definately broke, and your baby definately has a ton of hair."

  • I had horrible heartburn which turned into major Acid I would lean over and acid would fall out of my mouth, I was miserable. The doctor told me the hormone that causes fetal hair growth causes bad heartburn. She was right because my DD had so much hair it was crazy. When I was giving birth and her head was coming out all I heard from every nurse and doctor was "Look at all that hair!"
