Heartburn... GGRR.. just venting

I have heartburn SO bad with this pregnancy. I had it with DS too but not to this extent. I can't eat anything at all without getting it and Tums & Rolaids aren't helping. I had macaroni & cheese w/ hamburger for suppper and I've got heartburn.. this stinks... I'm only 23 weeks so no relief for quite a while

Thanks for letting me vent about this!!

Re: Heartburn... GGRR.. just venting

I too have ferocious heartburn with this pregnancy and I'm only 20 weeks!! I had it bad with my last one too. My only relief comes from drinking milk believe it or not. I can't stand the chalkiness of Tums and Rolaids. Although the new chewable Rolaids are pretty good, I still prefer milk. Sometimes I have to drink a big glass and sometimes just half a glass, but it does work. Maybe that will work for you too!

Hope it gets better. It sucks eating a cracker and getting heartburn. I know. Some of the things I get heartburn from amaze me!!

Mine just started to get really bad this past week. I'm only 16 1/2 weeks. I have had it bad with all of my pregnancies so I was expecting it. I chew peppermint tums after everything that I eat to try to hold off the heartburn.

Sorry you are dealing with that. I hope it gets better soon.

Re: Heartburn... GGRR.. just venting

I have had REALLY bad heartburn in this last month.

My OB said to take Zantac it lasts 12 hours.

And seriously it totally does works like a charm. I can FINALLY sleep it's soooo nice.

Grapes, bread, eating anything gives me heartburn it seems.

Ugh, me too! Milk, Tums, Mylanta...none of that works for me. It sucks. I get it so bad I wanna barf. Anyway I've been taking Pepcid AC for some time now. It helps.

Nothing but sympathy from me. I am on the strongest rx of zantac and still have it. It was so bad the other night I thought I would throw up. I sleep with 4 pillows at night.
I like to think I am giving birth to an ape.. (the old wives tale about h/b putting hair on your baby.)
Try zantac I wouldn't be able to live without it I would go insane... it helps but I still have it.
