  • Yep yep. I ended up having horrible reflux, too, where I would throw up with almost no warning. They put me on Pepcid, which really helped, and it helped the heartburn, too. I still took Tums when it got really bad.

  • i had it sometimes but not at all in the beginning. i know this is gross but if you drink like half a glass size of a shot glass of vinegar it will go away almost instantly

  • All the time! I'm having a large baby and he hasn't dropped, probably won't drop, and I'm scheduled for a c-section on May 5th. Anyway, I've had heartburn and stomach problems since around 3 months. The first trimester was a breeze and I slept all of the time. After that, I started to get heartburn with almost everything that I ate. I've been taking liquid Maalox and it works wonders.
