    Today the heartburn has started, I was hoping I may get away with it this time as I suffered greatly with it my last pregnancy, and yes my daughter was born with masses of hair!!
    Although I didn't really start with it until around 12 weeks.
    I haven't yet bought any gaviscon yet just having milk at the moment, but I was at one point drinking the stuff with every mouthful of food it was that bad :wacko: Its awful, just makes me wanna be sick to get rid of it. I hope its not that bad this time.
    Anybody else suffering?

    I was think the same thing these past weeks, because I never really had heartburn till later on. But now if I am craving anything spicy I have to be prepared to suffer the consequences of massive heartburn. :-(

    I don't get heartburn but I do get the reflux really bad, and have been for weeks. Tums have been a lifesaver for me.

    I get it from the start too. I try to avoid antacids (though with past pg's I was on strong stuff 1-2x a day) becasue of the harm in reducong needed acid, but I love d-limonene. Works amazingly.
