9392891 tn?1412535749 Please help! I'm 28 weeks pregnant and have the most horrible heartburn and acid reflux imaginable. I don't know how to ease it, it's so painful! I'm literally in tears from the pain, it feels like Satan himself is invading my esophagus! Anyone know any remedies?
Avatar f tn I do know if ur actually getting sick sudafed and normal robitussin and mucinex are safe to take while pregnant. But its still good to talk to ur doc and get their opinion on what to take. I know the first time I got sick durring my pregnancy I went to.the clinic and they told me it was just broncittis but when I told my OB she also did a quick exam and realized I had a sinus infection as well and was feeling much better after she suggested two more things to take with my antibiotic.

Avatar f tn It is safe to use while pregnant. Also yes I do believe that means baby has a lot of hair. Cause I had it with all 3 of my kids and they all had a lot of hair. I am 26 weeks pregnant with my 4th now. No heartburn yet but I do believe it will here soon.

Avatar n tn I'll be 46 at the end of this month & just moved to a new state so I don't have the luxury of knowing any doctors. In the last 1-2 months I suddenly gained 40 + lbs & look pregnant. That seems to be where the weight all is. A urinalysis proved negative for pregnancy on Monday & with my 3 grown kids I did not gain this much weight &/or so fast. I just look pregnant & feel "full - heavy - tired & short of breath" most of the time.
Avatar f tn I was super tired chest hurt and heartburn. I was worried but was scared to take a test so I tried some home remedies but nothing so I was like f it. Made a appointment like for two weeks after that for bc although I didnt get my period and I found out I was.
Avatar f tn I'm 45 years old and 5 1/2 weeks pregnant (Naturally). My husband and I have been trying for 2 years a number of IUI's but no success so we just gave up. I have 2 children from my 1st marrage (age 18 & 14). I'm scare to death, don't know if I can do this all over again at my age. My husband is 5 years younger and really wanted a child of our own. He is so happy but he doesn't understand all the riskes being pregnant at 45. I know most women my age will have a miscarriage.
Avatar n tn Within days, I felt better than I had felt in years. Then, 2 weeks later, I got pregnant for the first time. My husband and I had been trying for a while. I have a beautiful 8 month old now. Also, I had become intolerant of several foods, such as all dairy, and now I can tolerate these foods again. Just not gluten. And I was totally unaware of the problem before I went gluten free (could not see any connection between how I was feeling and the consumption of gluten).
Avatar f tn Hello ladies I'm 5 weeks almost 6 weeks pregnant I get bad morning sickness , headaches and heartburn . Any tips or remedies that helped you ? I'm willing to try anything !
Avatar n tn Hi there, my suggestion is try and limit iron and fibre intake, if I eat weetabix or shreddies etc... My heartburn is really bad. When not pregnant I have to take 1 mepredec a day while pregnant I need 2 as my heartburn goes through the roof. Milk helps die it down, but if you're getting it bad enough you're throwing up, I would suggest seeing your healthcare provider as it can burn your throat and cause things like larengitis (this happened to me it sucked).
7841769 tn?1408460986 If you have been actively trying for a year or more than six months if you are over 35, see your practitioner 19. Act pregnant. This includes not drinking alcohol, even while trying to conceive. There is no known safe level during pregnancy and alcohol can cause birth defects 20. Announce your pregnancy when you are ready 21. Talk to your parents, what do you want to take from their experiences? How do you want to be different? 22. Rest when you can. Nap! 23.
202615 tn?1271373104 I just had a 3 day transfer yesterday and I heard that it is better to do a transfer on day 5. My questions is has anyone had a 3 day transfer and became pregnant. Also, when does implantation take place during a three day transfer.
Avatar f tn Try tums for heartburn they are safe during pregnancy and zofran is a b class drug and is considered somewhat safe during pregnancy but there also has been birth defects but if you can't keep anything down then I would take the chance. Try gingerale and crackers first before putting your baby in any possible harm but if you can't keep anything down I think it would be worth taking zofran to stop the vomiting.
Avatar f tn Here is a list of meds that are ok to take...
1780140 tn?1314596605 Being pregnant right now toothpaste is really bothering me every time I have to brush my teeth, I get severe heartburn. So I looked this up and heartburn is association with fluoride. So changing to baking soda for a few days is a good suggestion... unless you can find a place locally that sells Tom's of Maine Flouride Free toothpaste and you can try that.
Avatar f tn Hi. I'm currently about 7 weeks pregnant with my second child. With my first, I never had any morning sickness, or heartburn or anything. but this pregnancy has come with a vengeance. I have morning sickness, ALL DAY LONG. and its so hard because my firstborn is almost two, so I have to chase her around all day, while I'm feeling the way I do. This is so hard. has anyone else had this problem? and if so, does it have anything to do with the sex of the baby?
Avatar n tn can 'mom' also be taken for heartburn, since the bottle also says that its an antacid. I've had it a while but was a bit dubious about taking it. I am 5 mths pregnant and suffer with serious heartburn and constipation.
Avatar f tn I've asked my mom about this and she just kind of gave me a dumb look, but did any of you start producing more saliva since you got pregnant. Its so disgusting but I can't help it!! Its like I just get this urge that I need to spit.am I dehydrated??? And Im 24 weeks along by the way, and so far with a healthy looking baby boy. Help!
