Heartburn and hair

If you had heartburn, did your newbie have a full head of hair when born? I had constant heartburn with DS and he had a FULL head of hair.

I had heartburn with all 7 pregnancies. 5 needed prescription strength meds it was so bad. With my 7th I vomited bile and stomach acid throughout my pregnancy and even during labor!

My first had no hair at all. 2nd had tons of hair. 3rd had normal. 4th was as bald as a cue ball. 5th was bald. 6th had a little and 7 had a little.


I think its a myth.

I researched it awhile back and it's not a myth. But it's not reliable. If that makes sense. Technically the chemical released by the creation of hair can give you heartburn. But... So will tons of other things.

2 babies with full heads of hair here. No heartburn to speak of with either pregnancy.

All 3 of mine had a good head of hair and no heartburn for any of them.

The pregnancy I had the most heartburn with produced the baby with the most amount of hair but I wouldn't say she had a lot of hair.

Re: Heartburn and hair

My last had about three times as much hair as the other two. He was also the only one I had heartburn with and it was severe and 24/7.. So much I would cough constantly.

While in the hospital I was watching that show about girls who didn't know they were pregnant and they said it was scientifically shown that the heartburn and hair correspond. Not sure how credible they are though
