    The hair thing is a crock. I had heartburn like a mo fo and even ate tums in my sleep so I could sleep. Cora had a mullet only it was bald in the front party in the back, Carmen had hair but we weren't having pigtails anytime soon!

    I had major heartburn with both kids, drank maalox out of the bottle, but I believe it's a myth when they say if you have heartburn your baby will have lots of hair because neither one of my kids had lots of hair, they had very little hair.

    I only had heartburn with one of my pregnancies, but all 3 of my kids had a lot of hair. I don't think there's much truth behind that old wives' tale.

    I am pregnant right now and I have heart burn. I also had it with my daughter. She was born almost bald. She is only 14 months and still barley has any hair! lol

    Thanks, girls. I had bad heartburn with my daughter and she had a lot of hair when born and she has a lot of hair now. I am pregnant again and have been having it really bad again. Just wondering if the old wives tell is true. You never know...

    Ack, let me find the study, but this is actually PROVEN. You're more LIKELY (that doesn't mean it's 100%) to have a baby with more hair when you've had lots of heartburn.

    Had severe hearburn during everyone of my 5 pregnancies which I never experienced before I was preggers! All my kids were born with really light blond hair, but got darker as they grew up!!!! I think its an old wives tale to be honest...but whatever floats ur boat!
