Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn and early pregnancy
Heartburn, gas and bloating can be one of the signs of an earlypregnancy. However it is too early to tell. If you do not get periods on the expected date then a home pregnancy test or blood test for beta HCG can be taken. Hope this helps.

I started getting heartburnearly in my pregnancy. I'm 21 weeks now and still have it. It's gotten a bit worse these past 3 days, as if my stomach and throat are constantly burning. I usually drink milk to help my heartburn and occasionally take tums.
I am just about 5 weeks and today I have some of the worst heartburn I have ever experienced. There are tears. I have tried milk, baking soda and water and lastly Gaviscon. Nothing is working. Anyone have any tricks? I am definately going to be losing some sleep over this bout tonight.
I have had horrible heartburn with this pregnancy since the begining.. I do not take anything for it other than TUMS... I would mention it to your dr but pretty much you can have it .. not have it.. it can last days or my case months... I drink milk to help as well.
You can always check with your doctor but my OB (who is the medical director of high risk pregnancies) told me it was ok to take regular strength PepcidAC. I started having terrible heartburn very early in pregnancyand tums did nothing. I take Pepcid twice a day and it's been a lifesaver! I actually buy the generic Wal-mart version (called Equate) and it's cheaper and works just as good. Good luck!
I like to go natural and drink milk. I know everybody is different though and it might not work for you. Don't eat to where u get full. Eat a good amount and eat every three hours since it'll be a small amount. I usually have cereal and a banana for breakfast then later a thick slice of cheddar cheese and nuts with grape juice. Etc.
, in a more closely confined area, at this early in pregnancy.
Also, try liquid Mylanta, it is SO MUCH faster than Tums and works really well for that really acid kind of heartburn. I keep a bottle in the fridge.
I'd say maybe your just lucky to not be feeling sick or sore and tender or emotionally up and down with this one. Every pregnancy is different also it's still early it may come later on. I myself am 6wks as well and I'm not enjoying the symptoms plus heartburn ugh...
Hello, i will be 34 weeks tomorrow and have been suffering bad heartburn since early in my pregnancy. I take tums at night to help me sleep cuz if not omg,i will just keep getting up. They was helping but now that im getting further along im starting to feel like tums is doing nothing for me.:-( i dnt even have to eat anything spicy. This is everyday.
4 weeks is much to early to see baby on an ultrasound. Usually baby can't be see with until around 7-8 weeks. And, not all women experience earlypregnancy symptoms, or symptoms may come and go randomly. Try not to worry and try to enjoy this special time. Congratulations and good luck!
