Not having that problem yet, but I did when I was pg w/ds. I have a short torso, and everything I put into my mouth gave me heartburn. I had tums everywhere!! In the car, beside my bed, beside the kitchen sink, on my desk at work, in front of the tv....
Well, I'm not even pg, but I do remember the water giving me heartburn. My advice: 1 tsp baking soda dissolved in a glass of water each day. It balances your ph in your stomach and should get rid of any heartburn. You're right that drinking water is important. Hope you feel better soon!
Yep, water just dilutes the stomach acid and makes it bubble up more. I puke up water all the time.
Apple juice is supposed to be good for heartburn, and I have better luck with juice or sports drinks than water. Even herbal iced tea. And yeah, try not to eat and drink at the same time (I know, right! I'm so thirsty it's hard not to drink while eating!)
So far I don't have heartburn while drinking water with this time around. I use to put a little bit of lemon juice in it and for some reason it would help. And I agree with everyone else : limit water with food intake. Yep
I have the same problem and started drinking bubbly water, or limeade cut with tap or bubbly water, always very cold. I found that the San Pellegrino water is what I tolerate best because the bubbles are small and "soft" in your mouth and it doesn't make me all burpy. Luckily our Costco has it by the case at a very good price. Best limeade so far is Odwalla, but I just bought some Trader Joe's to try so we'll see how that works.
I'm so glad I'm not just insane! Not that I wish this oddity of pregnancy on anyone else of course!
I'll try all the suggestions (she types as she gulps down an enormous glass of room temp agua after finishing her spag )
OMG me too! I keep thinking how odd it is that water gives me heartburn!!!! For me ANYTHING I consume after 3pm gives me heartburn. It's gotten so bad that it wakes me up at night! And I immediately need to get upright or I'm going to throw up!!! I've tried TUMS and Papaya Enzymes and they are not helping much. With my last pregnancy I ended up on Prevacid (at the very end) which was a blessing, but it's waaay worse this time around. Blech.
