I have been having some HORRIBLE heartburn the last couple of nights. I was talking to my Mom about it last night and she said that it "could" mean that my lil miss will have a lot of hair (god I hope not) I'm blonde but my ex is latin. He doesnt' really have dark dark hair though. But he is hairy (ick) Anyway, has anyone heard of heartburn meaning that? Also, why would I be having so much heartburn? I couldn't eat anything today. I had a english muffin with eggs this morning but other then that I haven't wanted to eat nor have I felt hungry. I am 36 weeks.

Yes I have heard that same wives tale, but no its not always true. I had wicked heartburn with all my pregnancy's and not one of them came out with hair. I even get heartburn with things you wouldnt think could cause it. But they say that your digestion slows down during pregnancy and the pressure from your growing uterus is what causes this. I hope you feel better soon, try to talk to your Dr. and see what he suggest. I took Mylanta(liquid) and that was the only thing that worked for me. Good Luck!!
Ive heard this all too before. I dont know if its true but I have 3 kids now all with me having killer heartburn. They all had tons of hair on there heads at birth. Now im pg again with even more heartburn and at my last 2 u/s she said this baby has tons of hair too. Im glad I dont want a bald baby. Lol it doesnt mean hairy all over though just hair on her head.
I hve 3 kids & expecting my 4th. With m 1st & 3rd I had th worst heartburn neither of them had hair. My 2nd child I didn't have any heartburn & she had a headful of red hair. So I beieve it's just an old wives tale.
try drinking soem milk, and last night I read that papaya juice helps heartburn. I don't know if the thing is true or not. I just looked at a list of things that mean you are carryign a boy, and about three out of 20 of them are true for me!
I have to take Zantac 150 twice a day just to be able to function cause of the heartburn and acid reflux. If I miss a dose I wake up throwing up stomach acid. My DD had a head full of hair when she was born and I had so much heartburn. I haven't had a ultrasound since week 20 so not sure if the boy will have a big head of hair, but my dad keeps teasing saying the baby is gonna be hairy as a gorilla :P
Hi, l started to ge theartburn at week 17 and im now week 28, my heartburn springs up any timeof day ! although eating little but often does help, and try to eat bananas and milk too.
Im not sure about the evidence regarding the hair thing. My aunts did not really get much heart burn and they loved eating spicy foods there kids had reasonable amount of hair. So i guess with me im gonna have to wait and see just like the rest of you ladies. Take care
Definately just an old wives tale. With my 1st child......I suffered from massive heartburn throughout my entire pregnancy. Not only was my daughter born with no hair at all, but she didn't have much hair even by the age of 2 years old. She had her first hair cut at 2-1/2 years old.
