Heartburn is a Son of A Byatch

Prior to being pregnant I never had heartburn, not once in my life. I'll admit, it seemed silly to me, something that only people who wolf down their food are plagued with, people who frequented buffets. I didn't get that it was a real ailment, that might just ruin your life. Mercy, I get it now, I call uncle. Please heartburn gods leave me alone, I am sorry I laughed at the weaklings with heartburn in the past. I have had it off and on throughout my pregnancy, but I have had it pretty much non stop since I got past the stomach bug I had last week. So, since Wed I have been burping what feels like battery acid. It is way worse than it has been over the previous months. It burns and it make my eyes water and makes me want to hurt someone. I am completely on edge because of it. I have just been taking chewable things like Tums Smoothies, but I am going to stop on the way home from work and get something else, soemthing stronger b/c Tums ain't cutting it.

I guess I can't complain too much, the only issue I've really had through this pregnancy is heartburn and a heck of a lot of cellulite. Ugh, that's for another post. That's for the cottage cheese genes mom.

Ew. I don't get it a lot, but I know heartburn is a bitch. Hopefully it's just a pregnancy thing - and will go away once that little muffin comes. Should be soon, right?

I never had heartburn prior to pregnancy either and while I can't say I had it as bad during pregnancy as it sounds like you are experiencing, I haven't had a bit of heartburn since giving birth so hopefully the same will be true for you.

Tums was in my desk @ school, in my car and at home... my bff.
Heartburn stinks! I don't miss that!

I was a Smoothies addict -- such a wimp about heartburn. At least it was one of the things that disappeared like magic upon delivery.

Oh, how I wish I could say the same for cellulite.
