    I've never had it in my life but i think i may be experiencing it now.

    What causes it and does anyone else have it? Is it something you can get through pregnancy?

    I get it now and again, its to do with all stomache been squashed and creating excess acid which will feel like a burning pain or yuckky acid sicky stuff!!!!
    I find it worse at bed time, so i sleep slighty upright, also avoid spicy food late at night, before bed i have a peppermint tea or glass of milk which helps. If i get it during the day i will have a polo or something minty.

    You can get stuff from chemist/doctor that is safe to take but i am trying to hold off on that till it gets really bad haha

    Good luck xxx

    Its rubbish :( I've had it since day 1! I even have gavison on prescription :D

    If its not too bad hun, rennies or such like work but as it gets worse, Gaviscon (or advance as i'm on) can work wonders!

    I don't think i had it. I think it may have just been pregnancy pains.

    It doesn't sound nice at all i hope i avoid it.

    Eck I never had it before pregnancy either, now I get it all the time. No idea what causes it either, I get it even if I don't eat. Always at night, ALWAYS!! :(

    I've started to get heartburn now! :hissy:

    It was kind of expected though because I got it with my last pregnancy!

    I'm really hoping it doesn't get too much worse as I hated using Gaviscon last time, it tastes icky!!!

    I used to get heartburn pregnant or not. I've started getting it again, so much so i feel the only slight relief i would get would be to shove my head down the toilet and get rid...but i know that's not good! But yes, gaviscon helps and you will get it free on prescription.x
