Common Questions and Answers about Heartburn and labor


Avatar n tn I cannot for the life of me get to sleep I have heartburn which will not go I've just thrown my lunch up and still heartburn! I have also just drank a pint of milk which has woken up baby and she is doing some serious breech backflips!
Avatar f tn Every night no matter what I do it never fails. Zantac and milk are life savers! Also, I've never heard of heartburn being linked to preeclampsia.
Avatar f tn contractions that prepare the uterus for labor and may cause some effacement and dilation (thinning and opening) of the cervix. These contractions do not ordinarily cause pain but may be sufficiently strong and regular to be confused with true labor. This is referred to as false labor.
Avatar f tn we had dinner bout 2hrs ago n all of a sudden I began to sweat, my acid reflux n heartburn went thru the roof and I began to feel nauseous and like I was goin to have diahrrea at the same time (wasn't sure if it was coming up or down)...sure enough it was diahrrea...am I beginning labor?! I didn't have any of these issues with my first (I had to be induced) four yrs ago!
Avatar f tn The best way to promote labor is walking and nipple stimulation. Nipple stimulation makes your body release hormones that will induce contractions. And walking will put pressure on the cervix and help to thin it.
Avatar f tn did anybody feel like they were gonna go into labor and actually go I'm not having contractions I just feel different
Avatar f tn Take a rennie and drink a glass of diet coke fast and you will let out an almighty burp and then your heartburn will be gone!
Avatar f tn I went in to labor and delivery once with my last pregnancy and when I got discharged I asked the nurse what to do for severe heartburn and she told me to open a can on voke and let it lie out for a while. Then drink it once it wasn't bubbly anymore. It surprisingly worked. And its safe to have 2 caffinated sodas a day.

It was so painful I thought I was going into labor, but I have been in labor and knew contractions wouldn't be in my upper chest area.. lol I almost woke hubby up to go to er.. anyone have heartburn like this before or know how I can ease my pain??
Avatar f tn I work in Labor and delivery and it happens all the time. Then you have to deal with testing the baby and talking with social services.

Avatar f tn I take mylanta notnsure if you have that in US and doc prescribed ranitidine 150mg twice a day safe during pregnancy. I was told by doc nexium isnt safe during pregnancy can cause birth defects and premature labor.
Avatar f tn 37+5 weeks n so ready for my little dude to come out. Have had a perfect pregnancy till the past week and half, have had heartburn, mild cramps, hip & back pain. What are some ways to induce my labor?
Avatar f tn I took Tums daily then went into preterm labor and was told to stop because something in tums can make you contract so my doctor put me on prilosec.....for 5 months. It worked wonderful.
Avatar f tn It depends on your doctor, and how the hospital is. Sometime is 2 or more. Last time I had 13 ppl w, me in the labor room lol.
Avatar n tn My husband and I just found out that we are 6w pg and since we found out last Thursday I have been noticing bad heartburn, I have read a little on it and things say small meals, but its not going away no matter what I do. Anyone have any suggestions for me? I am a little nervous as this is my first and I dont know what to expect!
Avatar f tn having upper right chest pains and squeezing pains in my stomach and sides. They induced my labor because my bp was elevated. After giving birth I started having the same pains and they said it was my body "adjusting to giving birth"...2 months after giving birth I was back in the e.r. for the same pains and they did an ultrasound and found out I had gallstones. They said I needed to remove my gallbladder within the week, so we did.
Avatar f tn Kayden Xavier Chance was born Yesterday, January 28th at 4:23 pm. I was in labor since Monday at 8 am by inducing. He's so adorable. (: He has red hair and dark blue eyes as of right now. With all his hair no wonder why I had heartburn! (: The pain was absolutely horrible, but an epidural became my best friend. Pushing was absolutely painless. The doctor had to cut me 3rd degree, and I have huge hemmeroids and I'm swollen bad. It's been painful but it was ALL worth it in the end.
Avatar f tn Has anyone ate fresh pineapples or drank pineapple juice and it actually bring on labor? Im 38 weeks 2 days. Im miserable and im willing to try anything that is natural and safe to get this baby out of me!!
Avatar f tn I Am already 40 weeks and i want to induce labor at home naturally rather than having it done ay the hospital,, what are some natural ways of inducing labor other than walking?
9807151 tn?1406765659 My apartment has stairs and I go up and down them everyday maybe I'll just walk up them more and more..
Avatar f tn The first 2-3 days are obviously the worst and you'll pass some clots. Then it may turn to a normal period-type bleeding and eventually to just spotting. Oh ya and your downstairs, if you have a vaginal birth, will get extremely swollen and sore and it may hurt to pee if you tear. The best thing my midwife taught me was to cut open the back of a diaper and stuff ice in the diaper. It works wonders for for an icepack!
Avatar f tn Im due march 13 and lately I have been having awful heartburn I mean AWFUL Im pretty sure these past couple days Ive been losing my mucus plug. How can I tell if im close to labor?
