I wake up every night without a doubt at 2am with really bad heartburn, sometimes I have been sick in my sleep and other times it's just the heartburn, I've also started waking up sometimes with a really sore throat and blood in my mouth. Feels as though my throat is cut or something, could the heartburn be making me bleed and should I tell midwife it's got this bad, she knows I get heartburn and have been sick in my sleep but didn't seem phased by it. Just said sit up in bed.
Anyone else had the blood in mouth or sick problem?
I'm the same, heartburn can get so bad it wakes me up. I usually try and take some medicine before I drop off and it has helped (until last night) The only time I have gotten blood is when im actually sick, it's like i've burst a vessel heaving or something (sorry if tmi) so if its there when you arent being sick i would check it out to be on the safe side.
I have hideous heartburn/acid every night. You can get some medicine from doctors - a tablet you can take to stop stomach acid production. Some chemists will sell it to you over the counter, and some wont and you have to get a prescription. I know a lot of women who have said they couldn't have survived their pregnancy without it. It's called Zantac (or renitadine) I think? I have been taking rennie whenever I get heartburn which seems to just about get me through! The blood may be due to the small blood vessels bursting in your throat as the other lady said, but get it checked if you are worried! xx
i do !!!, seen dentist for bleeding as its the gums that were bleeding and can be common in preg, i went had good clean at dentist , which helped, but they dont give you full clean like they would normally whilst actually preg, so once baby born i will be going again for a good go
Sometimes I wake up with a sore throat. I think my nose bleeds whilst I'm asleep, but not enough to come out of my nose it just goes down my throat. Sometimes I feel 'bunged' up and blowing my nose reveals blood. I don't develop a cold so I'm guessing that's the cause of the bunged up feeling.
I don't mean to alarm you, but if you think the blood is coming up from your stomach (it would probably be dark-coloured), you may be bleeding from your stomach or oesophagus just above your stomach due to damage caused by the acid constantly coming up, and that can be serious in some cases.
If it were me, unless I was booked to see the midwife the very next day I wouldn't wait until that appointment, I would see a GP or go to the A & E as soon as possible, just to be on the safe side. If you weren't pregnant and started having blood come up your throat you'd probably want it checked right away, right?
