Heartburn = Hair?

I've had acid reflux for a few years now, and it was getting worse in my early second trimester. My doctor put me on Pepcid and it worked like a charm for a while, then the reflux/heartburn came roaring back full blast and then some in the third trimester. Prescription, Tums, milk, nothing stops it!!

Everyone keep saying this means my twin boys are going to be fuzzy-headed. DH had a full head of thick, black hair at birth, but I had zero hair until I was 18th months old. If this is true, I feel like with the force of the heartburn, my boys will be little WOLF BABIES!

Any of you pretty ladies experience this? Any correlation between heartburn and baby hair for you?

It's an old wives' tale :)

I figured as much, but so many people have said it's true and the U/S tech said she thought she saw some shading on the 3D scans that looked like hair... I want them to have their dad's hair so bad lol!

Awweee... well, I'll certainly be waiting SUPER ANXIOUSLY to see. I'm dying to see their faces either way, cause on the U/S one looks just like DH and one looks a little like me, which makes me think fraternal. I can't wait to compare features... although I'm fully prepared for the possibility that since they're newborns, they'll probably just look like Winston Churchill for a while.

It was true of my first child. She had a head full of hair and I had terrible heart burn. I did read that there is some actual science behind this old wives tale, also.
