Ds1--no heartburn at all til like the 39th week. As even then it was so minor I wasn't even sure what it was (had never had heartburn before in my life). He was bald as could be.
Ds2--a lot more heartburn, a LOT more hair
Ds3--heartburn practically from bfp, hairy as can be lmao

So for me, the wives tale has been true

I have crazy heartburn with all of mine.....the first 2 had peach fuzz and it was RED lol. So I joke that all that acid turned their fuzz red. Heartburn is bad this time around too but shes not due til June.

Yep, this is one that is a proven correlation from what I have read. But like Emily said, it isn't a guarantee either.

I had loads of heartburn/reflux with DS and he had a decent amount of hair. I have had reflux issues with this one from early on, so I am anxious to see if she has hair or not.

I had no heartburn with my son and I could seriously put a ponytail in his hair at birth.

Re: Heartburn and hair

I always end up on the max dose of Zantac when I'm pregnant. I get horrible, HORRIBLE heartburn/reflux. I even reflux in my sleep and wake up choking...even when medicated. It's awful! Both of my babies have had hair so far, but not much at all - just fuzz. From everything I have read, heartburn/reflux comes from the pressure the baby puts on the bottom of the esophagus. It doesn't have a thing to do with hair. That's just an old wives' tale.
