Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn and early pregnancy

heartburn

Hi, Heartburn, gas and bloating can be one of the signs of an early pregnancy. 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. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.

Is heartburn so common in early pregnancy? And is that bad? I just really don't remember..Please share..
I am 6 weeks and i am having horrible heartburn!! Is that normal so early and if so what can relieve it??!!
I started getting heartburn early 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 only had heartburn once or twice my entire pregnancy and my daughter had lots of hair when she was born.
I'm and 22 weeks now and FTM. I started to had heartburn just with certain food like rice. I stopped eating rice and I dont have anymore more heartburn. The only thing I took to help was Tums.

bit guilty cause i wanted to refrain from medicating myself and deal with it while pregnant...have any of u guys suffered frm heartburn early pregnancy?
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.
Im 14 weeks 4 days and this morning have woke up with THE WORST heartburn ever. Is this normal this early on?? What can i take for it???
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.
I just Googled this question and found out that you shouldn't use baking soda if pregnant. I'm dealing with heartburn for the lady could of days; I'm 38.
Zantac zantac zantac/ rantidine rantidine rantidine!!
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 pregnancy and 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.
But I've got killer heartburn and normally I just swig some pepto and am fine but in case I'm pregnant I don't want to do that so what can you take to help when you are preg.?
Get zantac 150 mg and take it once in the morning and once at night same time everyday and it is all day-relief. I only get heartburn maybe once or twice and thats usually obly because i didnt take it on time. Regular milk cold or warm is all you need to keep you feeling normal until pill kicks in! My doc prescribed it to me when she realized she had technically advised me to take more than the recommended dose of Tums for a couple months straight.
I had bad heartburn with first pregnancy and my son was born a baldy lol
Hey on and off cramping is normal right? This pregnancy is already different from when I was pg with DS. Come and go symptoms and some cramping.
, 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.
Hey im almst 10weeks pregnant and have had heartburn 4 last few weeks,i remember getn heartburn late in my last pregnancy but why am i getting it so early this time?
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...
I am having the worst heartburn ever! How early did you ladies get heartburn? Can that be a sign of pregnancy? Or does that come a lot later in pregnancy?
I'm 8 weeks along and the only symptoms I'm having are heartburn and fatigue. I haven't experienced nausea or sickness or even bloating. Do some people just develop the symptoms later than others?
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.
