My 5 month old dd has always spit up a lot, and when she is laying down I can see the spit up come up in her throat and then she either spits it out or swallows it. I am thinking that this has to hurt her but she just makes a noise and then starts smiling again. Anyone else have this?

Sounds like the "happy spitter" version.

For a very oversimplistic distinction between her and my son, lots of babies experience reflux, the difference is for some only milk comes up = no pain for others there is stomach acid too = pain. If she's not showing any signs that it bothers her than great. No problem.

If she is eating happily and gaining weight, I would agree that she is a Happy Spitter! My dd is NOT a happy spitter--she definitely has reflux
She did not gain well and refuses to eat when not on her meds.
