  • Yes I learned the hard way 1st pregnancy. You can try Tropicana low acid. If that doesn't work then your O.J. days may be over for the next 9 months.

  • Yes. Anything citrus made me have awful heartburn. Turned out I had horrid reflux. I would throw up with about 3 seconds notice throughout my pregnancy (different from hyperemisis). Pepcid helped a lot, but it still happened occasionally.

  • Heck, I have that problem and I am not pregnant! It most likely is too acidic for your empty stomach. You could try eating before you drink the juice and see if that helps.

  • Tums or some other antacid. You might also try mixing it up into a smoothie. Use the breakfast shake packets that carnation makes, milk, and ice. With the dairy it might help.

  • DON'T take antacids regularly. That can start a whole other set of issues. You may have to lay off the OJ while you're pregnant. I hated that part. It was so unfair- I craved fruit, but I couldn't each much of it!

  • stay away from acids! i clicked on ur ? wondering if u had the same thing, but no....

    early in my preg i was craving OJ, even over coffee!!! ilike chugging it. had a fab preg. no sickness or swelling :) then in beg of 3rd tri i drank gallons of choc milk. very strange... must b my body needed vit C and calcium.

    i gave up sandwich meats (Listeria) and alc, both of which i love. it's alllllll worth it!!!

  • I've heard tums are okay to take for heartburn. Ironically I was so the total opposite, I got heartburn from my yogurt but at least with baby number two for the first little bit I was downing orange juice like it would never be made agian.
    I wish you luck.
