After another sleepless night due to heartburn, I decided to find out why it was affecting me so badly. I came across this interesting little article that said john hopkins did a study that found women who had moderate to sever symptoms of heart burn were more likey to have a baby with newborn hair. The same hormone that relaxes your esophgus is also responsible for promoting hair growth. Check out the article.

With my 2nd pregnancy I had no heartburn but she had more hair than her sister did and that pregnancy was horrible with heartburn

That is exactly what everyone has told me. Last night I had the worst heartburn during my whole pregnancy and just couldnt seem to get rid of it. I had no clue about apple cider though. I will def. try that. It also doesnt help that when I was born I was as hairy as a monkey and my SO is hairy also. My poor child. HAHA. Thank you for the article it was very helpful!! Good luck to you!!

I never had one day or night of heartburn with my DD and she was born with a full head of hair!!  I have had NO heartburn with this pregnancy either, so we will see what happens in Nov. when I am due!!     I would say NOT TRUE...  Just another wives tale!!

 with my first daughter i had HORRIBLE heartburn almost 24/7 from 6m until i delivered & she did have hair but not a head full.
i'm now in my 7th month & have had heartburn only once or twice so we'll see...

I wouldnt exactly believe that your child will have hair just cuz you have lots of heartburn. I had endless heartburn whole pregnancy and my DD was bald.

YEah its defly true. With my first son had no hair and I had no heart burn what so ever and with my second son I had a good amount of hair. He had it on his arm and his ears for the first 3 months. Now that Im having a little girl. Im having a massive amount of heart burn..
