Mine started while pregnant 13 years ago. After a major cardiac work up I went on Prevacid.

Ildiko Barrett
take omeprazole :).

Jess Chandler
Yep :( currently pregnant myself and the first few weeks were absolute hell. However... I feel fine since I went back on to omeprazole at 12 weeks :) xxx

Ebony Mitchell
Yea I know what u mean smh miserable.

Jess Chandler
I feel your paint hunny. It's horrible. Ask your doctor to put you on omeprazole. Took a few days or so to kick in with me but I feel 100% better for taking it now. Ask your midwife about it, mine told me it was safe once you'd gone past 12 weeks. Hope you feel better soon xx.

Lynne Roué
I had it badly with all three pregnancies and I know my Mother suffered with her pregnancies too.

Angela Glen
Possibly. I used to go through a bottle of gaviscon a week x.

Kelsey Blais-Krob
I took prilosec 1-2x/day with both of my babies. Everything went fine, no issues.

Natalie Rodriguez

My gerd started when I'm pregnant with my first child 6 years old and I just gave birth to my second child last month. I took omprazole.

I had the worst rebound during my first tri after I stopped omprazole. Do not stop your current medication without consulting your doc

Eat yogurt or banana (it's really good frozen and mashed, like ice cream) for a temp fix. I had it really bad with my daughter and those were the only things I ate for almost the whole pregnancy. Make sure the yogurt is thicker, like Greek or Icelandic.

I have found Naturemade digestive probiotics and activia, along with other probiotics have really helped. Also, you may need a high potency b vitamin - that helped me with nausea and stomach issues when I was pregnant.

Jess Chandler
I agree! I take probiotic capsules every morning and I feel so much better xxx.

Amy Laroche
I took omeprazole and Ranitadine twice a day and propped up on pillows to sleep.

Filomena Falco Muncipinto
I have basically suffered from GERD since i was 12 yrs. old. But during the 9 months of my pregnancy it was pure hell! Heartburn and migraine headaches 24/7 . I used to drink Mylanta as if it was water and I remember thinking " even if it hurts the baby, I DON'T CARE'! That shows how bad it was, because I would give my life for my only child!
