 So I read and artical that says researchers believe that more heartburn during pregnancy means more hair on your babies head! They believe that the hormones Progesterone and estrogen are linked to hair growth and the more of these hormones going through your body during pregnancy means more heartburn!

IF you have had alot of heartburn during pregnancy did your baby come out with lots of hair or was He/She bald??

 I had zero heartburn With olivia and she had soooo much hair! But Im 10 weeks prego this time and idk about hair or not. Im not trying to offend or be racist but My baby is half mexican and I notice mexican babies tend to have alot of hair when they are born. I see alot of white babies with no hair(all 8 of my moms) polus others. I know there are other races but where I live thats about all the babies I see so idk about other babies.

I had really bad heartburn with both of pregnancies and both of them only had a little bit of hair.  I think it is just an old wives tale.

I had it so bad from start to finish to the point of almost puking and my first DD was bald.  My second DD  no heartburn at all she had lots of red hair.  This time I have it just as bad as the first so I think this one will be bald but then again who knows.

My daughter was born with lots of hair, but it started falling out to the point that she was nearly bald!
