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.
I am 6 weeks and i am having horrible heartburn!! Is that normal so early and if so what can relieve it??!!
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.
) i didnt know i'd get heartburn this early i had it with my first pregnancy but not til i was like 30weeks lol so this came out of no where.

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.

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!
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.?
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 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'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.
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?
I was supposed to get my period on a Friday and I tested the Sunday before and I got a positive. I'm now 10 weeks 5 days pregnant!!
Ya, soooooo not heartburn. You would know...and your dinner would be backing up your throat, and burning it...hence the name 'heartburn'. It is a foot, probably a little heal. When it happens to me, I usually get up and move around, in hopes of slightly changing the baby's position. Although, 29weeks is a bit early to have this problem. I have a long torso, and this gets me around 35weeks.
What was everyone early pregnancy symptoms? I've only had cramping and constipation. Anyone else?
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 early pregnancy symptoms, or symptoms may come and go randomly. Try not to worry and try to enjoy this special time. Congratulations and good luck!
My early symptoms were minor but included sore bbs, heartburn and increased thirst. Not much fatigue until later on.
I really was thinking I wasn't pregnant so I took 3 shots of vodka, I can normally take a lot more then that but after those 3 I was so buzzed I could barley stand up and me and my bf got into an augment and I just started bawling for about two hours so I really don't know what to think anymore
I am now 4 weeks and 1 day pregnant and hoping hoping hoping and praying this one will make it. Feels different this time compared to the ones I lost so I am very optimistic that this one will make it.
Does anyone know if it is possible to have pregnancy symptoms of nausea and regular urinating really early in pregnancy?. I still have 8 days left until af is due, my breasts are not sore. I have suffered 3 miscarraiges and just been diagnosed with pcos, I have been put on 100mg of asprin a day, and told when I get pregnant again to return to the specialist and he will be putting me on hormones (He advised some of my hormones are too elevated eg testosterone).
