I have had it the whole time and the only thing that works is 1 teaspoon of bi carb soda in a small glass of water..It will make you burp alot but I swear by it.
Hope it helps
First pregnancy I got heartburn at about 30 weeks. It lasted until I had my daughter but as soon as she was born it was gone. I just eat Quickeze and had Mylanta.
This pregnancy, I've had heartburn since about 20 weeks pregnant and ended up in hospital throwing up acid. I am now on Zantac medication twice a day for the rest of the pregnancy.
No matter what I eat, I have heartburn.
Hope yours doesnt get this bad but if it keeps persisting and Mylanta doesnt work, talk to your dr about something a bit stronger. How far along in your pregnancy are you?
Sorry to tell you but mine has lasted the whole time. I am due in 9 days and still get it. I am lucky and Mylanta liquid and chew works for me but when I don't want to take that I just have a glass of milk and that calms everything down. I found that the more water I drunk the more heartburn I got!!!
hate to tell you, but I had heartburn from about 14 weeks and I still have it. I'm 39 weeks and 5 days. I spoke to my GP and she suggested Zantac. Seems to work some of the time. If it gets really bad (like in the middle of the nite) I use mylanta for quick relief. It doesn't matter what I eat either. Just have to put up with it for a little bit longer. I found that chocolate milk helped also.
I have had heartburn through my whole pregnancy it gets really bad late at night, the only thing that works for me is Andrew's Tums it works instantly.
I hope i don't have this for the whole thing but oh well not much I can do about it
