I never get it any other time. I had it BAD during the last 2 trimesters, but now only get it when DS nurses at night. What's the deal? Hormones?

I got heartburn bad while pg with my first and suffered with it for 16 yrs.<br><br>
Finally went on a generic prescription prilosec drug. The reflux was so bad, and getting worse, and cutting out most acidic foods did not help.<br><br>
My chiro had me try a trick. It didn't work for me but it may for you. He said that when you are pg, your uterus can push up on your stomach actually pushing your stomach up a little bit above you diaphragm, and then your stomach acids can run freely into your esophagus.<br><br>
My first child was over 10 lbs and definitely crowded my stomach.<br><br>
So, to pull your stomach back down, even 1/4 inch may help. He said people have had success with this: first thing in the morning, drink 16 oz of water. Then, jump up and down for 2 mins. Repeat the next day.<br><br>
Maybe it will work for you b/c you had your baby recently?
