I'm at 38+5. All night tonight I've been having massive heartburn. Not unusual for late pg, although I've not had issues with it in the past couple of weeks.
The weird thing is, it's very rythmic (sp?). It's coming in waves every several minutes and then goes away in two or three minutes. Could this be a way of feeling Bh or prodromal contractions?
I wouldn't have thought so, except it's so weird to be having such regular waves of extreme heartburn. And it's *intense*. Like a couple of times I've had to make an effort to breathe it just felt so intense, and a couple of times I kind of coughed reflexively to try to get rid of the pain in my throat and chest.
Has anyone heard of this or experienced it? I'd be thinking of calling the midwife, but I think if it was important I'd be able to detect some other symptoms. So just curious really.
