What are you able to take for it? Planning on getting pregnant next year so curious.

Crystal Burke
i do tums and Ranitidine there are others that are safe.. but dont have the list in front of me. I kept the Ranitidine because that is what i have been on for years.. and i do Tums for the break through..

I am on prilosec. It's a few months away before we can even start trying but I want to know what to prepare for.

Crystal Burke
Charlotte Perkins Salvatierra best thing to do is talk to your OB and get a list.. most will give you meds you can take.. i know there are a few..

That must be awful. I’m so scared to get pregnant again now that I’ve developed GERD. Hope you find some relief!

Omg! Me too! And I'm not very far along. For the most part, I had my reflux under control prior to getting pregnant. Now slowly my symptoms have worsened from week to week. I think the bloating and the fact that food digests slower, is making things worse. I went from one zantac a day to 2 daily and gaviscon every single night. If it's this bad at 12 weeks, I'm scared to see what the future holds. But like you said, it will all be worth it in the end.

Crystal Burke
i'll be 23 weeks on Monday and i have been horrible since about 10 weeks.. and like you said.. getting worse every day.. and further along i get..

Try gaviscon advance. They sell it on Amazon(made in the UK). It's safe in pregnancy and has provided a lot of relief at night, when my symptoms are the worst.
