  • It doesnt mean u r having a girl, that is an old wives tale. I had heartburn w my first pregnancy and I had a boy. I also have heartburn this pregnancy and Im having a girl. Unfortunately its just part of pregnancy. Become very familiar with zantac! It will save u!

  • I never had it with my first pregnancy, but my second...whoa. I carried a bottle of Mylanta with me everything and when I laid down, I had to lay down propped up on pillows. Try Gingerale.

  • i had this around 6 months
    happened over night and i put up with it for weeks until i called my doc
    he gave me prescription
    after two days-no heartburn at all
    what a total relief!

    i had a girl, a very active, very strong minded girl

  • It's an old wives tale that if you have bad heartburn your baby will have lots of hair. It was true with my first one, so we'll see how this one comes out!
