ive still got another 3mths to go of this. It just seems to be getting worse and worse. Last night it woke me up-this sounds gross but i actually had sick in my mouth .I have to sleep with the bin beside me because i can feel the acid travelling up into my mouth. Gaviscon isnt touching it so what else can i do?
You need to sleep upright perhaps ? optimally- still lie on your side but with extra pillows or a V pillow.
I would see your GP too as they may be able to prescribe some stronger Gaviscon, mine did.
Homeopathy may help- you'll need to see a practitioner though about this.
I would try and avoid spicy and fried foods, eat small amounts little and often.
oh i used to get heartburn so badly it would make me cry.
cutting down on water helped me the most surprisingly enough. i mentioned it to the doctor and he said something about swilling the acid, can't remember, but it made sense to him.
no coffee or tea
yoghurt, milk, fennel/peppermint tea
small meals, frequently - don't get hungry.
Rennie Duo was better than Gaviscon i found.
Also it might not last until the end of your pg, just might be the position your baby is in pushing against your stomach. when it moves down you should get relief
