Oh the joys

The joys of pregnancy...
The latest for me is reflux. It started at around 30 weeks.
It's horrible, painful and so not very nice...

First I tried bubble gum!

Sounds silly I know, but I read it on a website so decided to give it a try...
It was actually pretty good! But then the reflux got worse as the pregnancy progressed.

Next was Gaviscon

HORRIBLE. Just horrible. I hated it and preferred to just have nothing.

But it got worse...

Not bad! Pretty good and currently what I have been having. 
A little yuck at first. But worth it.

Today I got myself some Zantac!

Will see how it goes...
I did check with the Doctor first though for this one.
And will report back.


  1. urg! Had this with every single one of my pregnancies and it sucked! I used rennie...didn't help tonnes, but it was the only one I could stomach (tastes like minty chalk).

    Hope you manage to get it under control.

  2. Reflux is horrible, I ended up on a prescription drug for it.

  3. Oh I had it bad with my second pregnancy, I swore by Eno every night.

  4. They say it means your baby will have lots of hair!! :)

  5. ^ No! I don't want her to have hair!
    Hubby and I were both bald when we were born and both very very blonde for many years... (then I went brown??? Don't know how)
    I was nicknamed Casper the goast when I was a baby...
    So we will just have to wait and see...

  6. Don't get me started on the reflux. It was so painful, i couldnt sleep at all! Your doctor should be able to prescribe something for you though. I lived on fruit tingles, zantac and gaviscon the extra strength liquid for evening's.Bleg just horrible, you poor thing.
