i'm in 30 weeks now... i had heartburn since 28 weeks. its like everyday. sometimes its like so painful that's make me vomit. is it normal??
Yes ive been having it daily for the past few weeks...Its sooo painful especially when i can feel like the air bubble going up in my chest and cant come out..Almost feel like something is stabbing me in my chest...When i get the heartburn attack,i have to stop what im doing and rub my chest to calm myself down..I didnt get any antacid but lately i drank coconut juice and so far,i havent had any heartburns..I dont know if the coconut juice helps or not..??
Yes it's normal. I had it quite often too. When it's very bad I took Actal (a form of antacid). But I try to avoid it. I was surfing on the internet that time for natural ways to ease heartburn and I found almonds. So I went to NTUC to buy the unsalted roasted almonds to munch. It helped me somewhat in easing the heartburn.
Thanks for all your advice. i will try almonds & coconut juice. worst come to worst then i will try antacid. maybe i can ask my gynae for advice on thursday when i visit him.
for my first and even my current pregnancy,i have terrible heartburn.. me and hubby even have a unique term to it-' system breakdown'.. hehe.. the last pregnancy drinking milk helps to ease/ neutralise my acid, but this time it doesnt wk at all..
i try my best to avoid spicy food, which is the main culprit.. but oily, salty and very sweet stuffs also contribute to it.. and having small meals often helps to stop heartburn for me.. but it can come at anytime.. n i hate the most when it comes in the midst of the night.. and all i have to do to ease it if its not so bad is to turn/sleep on the left.. or vomit e acid out if i really cant help it..
i have not tried antacid, cos my obs last time never prescribed it to me.. again heartburn doesnt happen to everyone, n intensity wise also depends on individual..w
I would like to ask ,
Other than painful , bubble cant come up , do you feel sour , vomiting & very hot at gastric ?
