'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

Has anyone had their first flare of gerd/spasms when they were early in pregnancy?

My first attack of GERD happened during pregnancy. I thought I was having a heart attack and called my doctor's office in a panic. 😳

Allie Lauck
That's what's going on with me it's been 2 weeks 😩.

Rachel Rouvel
Oh wow. Mine was a day, maybe two. When I went into urgent care they gave me a magnesium (?) drink that killed the pain instantly. Maybe you should go in? Pregnancy is hard enough without symptoms of reflux!

Mine started in pregnancy too 😢 I posted about it yesterday. So awful, it lasted the rest of my pregnancy..and beyond. I hope you start feeling better soon, take care of yourself x.

I thought I was the only one it started at 4 weeks 😕 and hasn't stopped...Ive been misrable everyday scarred to eat cause the tightness and uncomfortableness is to much.
I can only imagine what the next months being I'm terrified but trying to stay open minded and positive.
Thank you,I hope all works out for you,stay comfortable.

Does tums help?It doesn't do anything for me :(

Rebecca DeSantis
Yeah most of the time. I bought the huge bottle and carried them with me everywhere. I am praying I don't get it this time. I am 7 weeks with #3.

Allie Lauck
How many do you take,I only take one I can't do the texture,I'll be 6 weeks monday

Rebecca DeSantis
Oh my silly self didn't know anything about GERD and when I was prego with #1 I would drink milk to try to help. It it obviously made it worse. I was thinking it's a base which would counteract the acid ... doh!

Rebecca DeSantis
I get the Smoothies. They are softer. I take 2-3.

Rebecca DeSantis
I gave up dairy like 2 months ago and it's helped me a lot. I hope it helps lesson the heartburn with the pregnancy too.

Allie Lauck
Yea I do 0 dairy,sugar,glute,wheats.Im very strick with food...Im going to take some more tums and try less harsh foods,onions are my weakness 😔.

Rebecca DeSantis
Good luck. It's like a constant experiment!

yes it started out as just "heartburn" or "Indigestion" and then slowly turned into acid shooting into my mouth all night after my 3rd! misery.
