    Definitely heartburn hon, and as far as I've heard its very common in pregnancies. I suffer from it on a daily basis :(

    Do you have any safe antacids there you can take? We have TUMS which work well for me and are also a good source of calcium!! Dr gave me the ok to them as directed on teh bottle. She also said if it wasn't working that I could take something stronger, but I've been ok with the TUMS so far.

    Hope that helps!

    Sounds like acid reflux. Very common to develop in pregnancy. I had it awful with my son... every morning I woke up and could taste acid in my throat! Bleh... Tums would be the first thing to try. If those aren't strong enough, I think Zantac is what comes next? Can't remember what I took. Maybe ask your ob/midwife?
     
  4. its heartburn. ive been having heartburn since 11 weeks and its awful. Tums will do the trick though

    Definitely!! Tell you what works for me, go to Morrisons and get their own brand heartburn tablets (6 for £1). They work for 12 hours so take them whenever you want, you don't have to wait for heartburn to strike. I've not had heartburn for days now :thumbup:

    Definitely heartburn/acid reflux. I've been taking Tums and Gaviscon with success!

    Definitely heartburn. The doctor told me to buy gaviscon which does help a bit. But milk helps me a lot better. x
