I thought heartburn/indigestion was supposed to get better the nearer you got to the 'end'?! I now have almost constant icky pain and am chain-chewing gaviscon tablets. Anyone else been here?

Plus my friend who works in a pharmacy has got me worried saying you shouldn't eat too many gaviscon tabs as they can increase your blood pressure. Uh oh. I'm not due to see the midwife till Monday (last saw her on 20th Dec) so don't know whether to just stop eating and stop taking the tabs or to carry on regardless. What do you think? The packet doesn't really specify a limit.

Oh yes...Happy New Year everyone!! Isn't maternity leave wonderful?!

Your bump shoudl drop soon. That often eases the indigestion off. In the meantime, ice-cream works a treat! The coldness takes the burn away and I'm sure the alkaline-ness of the milk must help too.
