Heartburn, oh how I hate thee!
I seriously laid in bed the other night until 5am because the heartburn was so awful. I think it was more like some sort of crazy reflux; the burn would rise up my throat and into the back of my mouth & I’d have to swallow it back down! It was horrible!! I can’t take heartburn medicine like Tums because it makes me nauseous to the point of puking. I usually eat a green apple, which helps neutralize the stomach acid- but I still have to be in a sitting position for a while after I eat it or else it comes up my throat anyway (albeit without the burn.) So I laid in bed, tossing and turning, hoping it would go away. No such luck!! I should’ve gotten up & eaten that apple anyway!
On the bright side, the severity of that heartburn/reflux during this pregnancy doesn’t happen too often- mostly if I eat dinner later than normal. And besides that- this baby will be totally worth it. I can’t wait to meet him!
