Any other mommies having bad heartburn at 26 weeks?? What are you doing to relieve it?
I am now at the stage of my pregnancy 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 of mustard! This is my first pregnancy 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 in a recliner or something just to have the help of gravity in 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 first 4-7 weeks of pregnancy. 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 in pregnancy comes from the stomach being pushed up out of 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 of the sodium in the suggestion I'm about to make. Try a swig of 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!
I have acid reflux and didn't want to take zantac with my first pregnancy so I was using a bottle of tums a day! Tums is great for the calcium but really ***** for persistent heartburn/reflux. Zantac stopped working for me and I've been on prilosec for a while now. Just one a day. Over the counter is more expensive than zantac but works better in my opinion.
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 weeks pg with #2. I have erosions in 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 of heartburn your baby will be born with alot of hair lol chubaca hahahah
It only gets worse the further into pregnancy you get. I remember with my first, 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 of Hearburn = Lots of Hair. I had Heartburn my entire first pregnancy 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 pregnancy with my first and I've had it since 13 weeks 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 pregnancy 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!! First pregnancy... I'm about 6 weeks! So excited :) no streching feeling but very tender breast and super tired!
I'm 14 weeks 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 first pregnancy ... I am only 14 weeks 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 of heartburn throughout your pregnancy 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 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.
I too suffered with horrendous heartburn in my first pregnancy 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.
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 .
