    Hello girls, I am soooooooooooooooo bored at work so thought id send a pointless post lol

    I have had loads of heartburn with the pregnancy and everyone at work keeps saying the baby is going to have loads of hair (heartburn myth). I didn’t have any heartburn when I was pregnant with my first and my daughter was practically bald with a wisp of hair until she was 18 months bless her! Lol

    For those that have already had babies or whos friends have had heartburn did the babies have lots of hair?

    From a VERY BORED Kasey xx

    It is a myth! I had horrible heartburn with my son (who is now 15) and when he came out, he was as bald as his own behind!!!!!!!!!!!!! :rofl: With the exception of a little teeny tiny patch on the very back of his head.
    I hope your baby has tons of hair, but I have to say this is a BIG myth!

    I had bad heartburn with all mine and they was all born with loads of hair.
    It is a myth though, you get heartburn because of everything being pushed up.

    I read somewhere that what causes heartburn is an excess of estrogen (which probably causes eosophagus muscles to relax etc) but that the excess estrogen in your system can cause your baby to grow extra hair. I think estrogen is a female hormone which contols luscious hair, nails etc?
    But at the end of the day every pregnancy is different. I havent seen 2 the same.

    i had really bad heartburn with my 1st and she was bald till she was 3 1/2 and then only had a few blonde curls,

    so i think its a myth, i don't understand how can a few strands of hair effect acid reflux?, its pressure on the stomach sending stomach acid up the gullet, thats why its worse when you lie down.

    lotsa a gaviscon lol
