View Full Version : Acid reflux this early? What's up with that?!
01-26-2012, 07:44 PM
I need your help. I had acid reflux in my third trimester with my DD, and it sucked. But now I am almost done with my first trimester with this little baby, and I think it is starting again...ALREADY! At first I thought I just kept getting morning sickness, but lately, I've been getting that weird taste in my mouth which is just gross.
Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to reduce this feeling? I am trying chamomile tea tonight, but I am open to anything.
Thanks in advance for any help!

I'm 26 weeks with my second right now and have found the same thing! My heartburn didn't start until well into the third trimester with DD1 but with this one, it came on SUPER early and has been HORRIBLE ever since!
I have tried all kinds of different things and the only thing that works for me is Tums. I checked with my doc and he said you can easily take them nearly every day and still be more than safe for the pregnancy. (In fact, it's a great source of calcium). I try to not take more than 2-3 a day, but am taking them probably 5-6 days a week. He said if it gets bad, it is possible to get on Zantac or something similar but I'd probably just deal with it before then.
Only thing I've found that works - short term - is ice cream or milkshakes (oh darn! lol)... the dairy seems to help settle it.
Best of luck and congrats on the baby! :)
Ad get ready...everything hurts worse and SO much earlier the second time, lol
