Avatar f tn In my first pregnancy I could get heart burn from drinking milk. It just happens, after months of being so uncomfortable I could hardly sleep, I finally spoke to my midwives and they got me a wonderful pill to take every 24 hrs and my heart burn was gone as long as I took it. Maybe ask your doctor at your appt.
Avatar f tn I was on omneprezerol before pregnancy, doctor said to only take if absolutely necessary. I read aboyt papaya during my first pregnancy and it was AMAZING! I am now 36 wks in my third pregnancy and gave been heartburn free as long as i eat a small bowl each night.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Hello Mommies this is my first pregnancy I am exactly 28 weeks and 4 days. I have been experiencing heartburn mostly after I eat. Has anyone else experience this? If so what did you do to prevent or make it go away? Or can you? I Do not Eat Spicy foods I Google ways to prevent and it say not to lay down right after you eat wait 3 hours and elevate your feet. I have done all n nothing works..
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn I had the worst heartburn everyday for the last 10 weeks of pregnancy with my first...
Avatar f tn Since we're in this heartburn kick, did any of your babies have Alot of hair? This question is for previous mom's who have had heartburn with previous pregnancies ??
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn Zantac!! I am in the same boat! Heartburn ***** ***!

Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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...
Avatar f tn I think thats a wivestale that if you have alot of heartburn your baby will be born with alot of hair lol chubaca hahahah
1317258 tn?1421717225 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar f tn Yup!! First pregnancy... I'm about 6 weeks! So excited :) no streching feeling but very tender breast and super tired!
Avatar f tn 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!!!
