Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn in first weeks of pregnancy


I had it with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>.... but like the hemroids its just one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> those things i tried hard not to remember. I take meds for it n drink lots of milk n water but still theren help me plz.
I get heartburn so bad it wakes me up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the middle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the night all i can say is at this stage tums works wonders and ur baby will have lots of hair
I am now at the stage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> that I get heartburn with everything that I eat. I hate this part with passion!! Anyone else???
As awful as it may taste. . A spoon full <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> mustard! This is my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> and heartburn had me waking up in the middle of the night every night cry, cause I was tired. A ate runs like candy didn't work and I hate milk. But I drunk it still didn't find comfort. So my home girl told me to try Mustard. I didn't believe it at first and then i asked all my relatives and they told me yes it works and to give it a try, they used it during their pregnancy.
It might be good for you to try to sleep propped up (if you're not already). Maybe even <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a recliner or something just to have the help <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> gravity <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> keeping what's in your stomach down.
I had the worst heartburn everyday for the last 10 weeks of pregnancy with my first...
The worst heartburn I've ever had in my life was in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> 4-7 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weeks</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>. It would wake me up at night and I would have to sit and wait for it to calm down. Sometimes eating helped, sometimes drinking a lot of water helped. Once, using a thumper-type massager on my back helped! I took liquid Mylanta (original formula) once, -- even though it is not highly recommended during pregnancy, it is not absolutely forbidden -- and it did help.
Also try sleeping in a more sitting-up position. Heartburn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> comes from the stomach being pushed up out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> its normal position by the uterus, and keeping the stomach acids down is helped by sleeping propped up a bit.
Do you have a problem with high blood pressure? The reason I ask is because <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> the sodium <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the suggestion I'm about to make. Try a swig <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> pickle juice. It worked for me and the theory is because it introduces. the acid into your stomach telling it to stop creating more. The only other thing I can suggest is watch the portions at night and prop yourself up so your head is above your stomach. Good luck!
This is very normal. heartburns normally go away after 3 months but some women's still experience til the 3rd trimester. Sit up after eat. don't lie down right away. Idk about ur other questions never heard of it.
I have Gastro Esophogeal reflux Disease and am 17 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weeks</span> pg with #2. I have erosions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my esophagus from heartburn, its horrible. Since I have started drinking a glass of milk with each meal, and sometimes in between I have actually been taking less tums. Good Luck.
sugar was a main cause of my heartburn....of course at the end all i had to do was smell food and i got heartburn...
I think thats a wivestale that if you have alot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> heartburn your baby will be born with alot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> hair lol chubaca hahahah
It only gets worse the further into <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> you get. I remember with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span>, I had heartburn here and there, but nothing serious and he hardly had any hair! With my second I had really bad acid reflux and he was born with TONS of hair! So, if it's true, this baby should have loads of hair as well! lol The only thing that calms it at this point for me, is drinking a small glass of grapefruit juice. It settles it for a few hours.
I am right there with you as far as the old wive's tale about Lots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> Hearburn = Lots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> Hair. I had Heartburn my entire <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> and my son didn't get his first haircut until he was 18 months old. And he only got one then because the hair that he did have was out control and curly.
I had heartburn my whole <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> and I've had it since 13 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weeks</span> this time..they told me its from them having a lot of hair and my son did have a thick full head! Milk and tums can be your nest friend at night.. and if you sleep propped up..I had to sleep in the recliner the last few weeks. Hope it gets better!
Is heartburn normal during <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> and how do you know if you have it??? What does it feel like and What can you take for it??? first pregnancy experienced moms help please!!!
I feel your pain! I had terrible heartburn, mostly at night when trying to sleep. When TUMS wasn't enough, my doctor told me that Prilosec was safe. It was expensive but totally worth it!! It's hard enough to get a good nights sleep when you're pregnant but add heartburn to it and...ugh! Double whammy! My doctor also said that if Prilosec didn't work that Nexium was also approved for pregnancy although it is even MORE expensive. I'm glad the Prilosec worked for me.
Yup!! <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>... I'm about 6 weeks! So excited :) no streching feeling but very tender breast and super tired!
I'm 14 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weeks</span> tomorrow and still have morning sickness.. it has subsided a bit though.. things you can try to help it are seaband wristbands, ginger, lemons or lemon heads or preggy pops.. and if none of that helps you can ask your dr for zofran.. and yeah I'm pretty sure you can have hot wings..
Ladies can you give me advice for your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> ... I am only 14 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>weeks</span> and 3 days... what should I be expecting right now and as the pregnancy goes on... its my first baby but its my boyfriends 2nd baby... I am scared to be a mom but also happy that I'm going to be a mom.. he's the happiest I've seen him when I told him we was pregnant...
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?
Is that true? If you have a lot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> heartburn throughout your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> baby will have lots of hair? With my daughter I didn't get heartburn until like 33 weeks. With my baby boy that I'm pregnant with I have had heartburn even before I got the positive pregnancy test at 4 weeks 5 days. I am now 20 weeks 2 days. My daughter had very little hair.
I too suffered with horrendous heartburn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> and tried the usual gaviscon, milk etc. This time it was so bad third trimester I went to my doctors and he prescribed me ranitidine, I take one a day and its been a life saver. Hope this helps! Good luck.
I would suggest seeing a doctor if you're really worried or it does not subside. Perhaps take a note of when it happens and what you have eaten during the day or night, how you're lying in bed or what time of the month it is (ie in relation to your cycle) as this info might help the doctors find out what is causing the onset of this problem. in the meantime, have you tried chewing on some indigestion/heartburn tablets (like 'Rennie') for eg? They are great for this type of pain relief.
My first two I hardly had heartburn & both came out with full head of hair. This one I'm due in July but I get severe hb a lot .
he has tons of hair and i don't remember having that much heartburn, only towards the end probably the last month <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>of</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span>, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> son mitchell was bald when he was born, i had no heartburn with him, and my other son austin had very little hair when he was born and i had lot's of heartburn with him, so i guess you never know! good luck to you!
I had really bad heartburns in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pregnancy</span> (and also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the begining thought it was something serious!) they started to appear when I was about 6 months pregnant. Sometimes I had to sleep with several pellows almost sitting down just to avoid the pain. drinking alot of water helps a little during a heartburn attack. With this pregnancy I had only few mild indigestion eppisodes (but not as severe as the ones I remember with my previous pregnancy) but I'm affraid things might worsen later.
