I'm going with the heartburn = hair theory since with my first baby I didn't have any heartburn and she didn't have much hair at all. 2nd baby I had TONS of heartburn and baby girl had TONS of hair. I haven't had it yet with this one but I don't think it started till later for me last time. Did your first baby have hair?
I had terrible heartburn with my daughter and then almost none with my son (both had tons of hair at birth too). This time around I have it a little so far! I think it might have something to do with the way you're carrying too. My daughter seemed higher up than my son and the way I'm carrying now is low. Do you know what your baby's gender is yet? We chose not to find out, so it's 4 more months of guessing for us!
The heartburn has gotten worse! Now I have it on a constant basis. It wakes me up at night and then I can't fall asleep. With my first son, it was somewhat worse, but more towards the end of the pregnancy. My first son had some hair, but my second son was more hairy and I never had heartburn with him. Now I'm having a third son so who knows whats going on. Other than this heartburn, this pregnancy has been completely different than my other two. Its had a mind of its own. lol
I give you credit for wanting the gender to be a surprise. I know I couldn't do it! : )
Hi, I had heartburn with my son, with my daughter it was worse and now this one (twins) tops both of them. I eat tums like crazy! When I get up one of the three times at night to pee, I usually have to eat a Tums atleast one of those times. And always before I go to bed. They definately help and they were approved by my last baby dr and now my new one (we moved) and also laying on my left side, which we're supposed to do anyway, seems to be better than the right. Good Luck!
