This is pregnancy #3 for me. I remember having the occasional bout of heartburn with the last 2, nothing too horrible and usually if I ate something spicy or whatever.
This time, I can eat 2 saltines and a glass of water and literally be dying.
I have heartburn 24/7 and at times, my chest hurts? Like I feel like I'm having a heart attack kind of sharp pain? What the?
My husband says it's just gastric reflux (he eats terrible foods, late at night so he does not have my sympathy when he's moaning at 3am).
What can I do for it? I'm 37w1d so I have a little while to go. It's getting worse, and I'm just getting over a bad stomach flu which really made it bad. I take 2 extra strength tums and they don't do anything.
I tend to eat really bland foods anyways, no meat, very little diary if any, nothing really acidic, nothing spicy...so I don't think there is a diet link... it just really hurts, all the time....
