I had zero heartburn and you can see DD's full head of hair by clicking her name in siggy. (And she never lost any of her newborn hair either.)

No heartburn with any of my pregnancies. DS (5) had tons and tons of hair at birth. It was seriously grown over his ears -- he had to have a haircut at 3 months old. DD (16 months) had a lot of hair, too, just not as much as DS. Baby #3 is still baking.

I had little or no heartburn with both pregs, and both dc had hair (ds's fell out though - it grew back fast, but a different color).

My personal heartburn theory is that if you have a longer torso, you will have less heartburn, because you have more space for the uterus and less pressure is put on your stomach, etc. I have a longer than average torso (I have to buy specially sized swimsuits) and had almost no heartburn in pregnancy, even at the end. I also never had shortness of breath, I think for the same reason.

I wish it had multiple options so I could answer for each child. I just did my first .
