5 Pregnancy Myths That May Have A Little Truth To Them
Heartburn during pregnancy means you’ll have a hairy baby.
We’ll admit that this is one of the pregnancy myths that cracks us up. First of all, we’ve never met a pregnant woman who didn’t have heartburn. And they had babies that ranged from totally bald to born with a bouffant. It’s also pretty gross, when you think about it. Because it’s hard not to imagine that actual hair is causing your heartburn. But while this one isn’t totally true, it definitely falls into the grain of truth category. Heartburn doesn’t cause hair growth, and your baby’s full head of hair didn’t cause your heartburn, exactly. But the same pregnancy hormone that contributes to hair growth in the womb ALSO relaxes the muscles that keep stomach acid contained in the stomach.
