I use Rennies, which are good and also safe to use in pregnancy. In extreme circumstances, I use Zantac, however this isn't recommended during pregnancy, but sometimes I get it so bad that nothing else works.

i had a bowl of cereal for lunch, this was obviously too much and I should go back to having soup as i've had heartburn since mid afternoon! also dont have fizzy drinks that makes it worse. try having milk after meals especially evening as it helps line the stomach. Also, make sure your sitting up whilst eating. I knows these arent remedies but they help. Also when i get it at night, lie on your left sife it helps.....something to do with the way you digestive system lies! I know what its like. I can put up wth it for so long but my throat is feeling very warm at the mo! almost as bad a smorning sickness but you cant bring acid up! lol xxx

I have glass of milk and works straight away allways have one before bed. Also keep in my handbag rennie chewable pastles. They arnt chalky like gaviscon.

i find eating bread late on in the day seems to destroy me when it comes to going bed (which is when heartburn seems to get me most) so try not to eat much later on in the day, small and often i got told. Night time soup and some milk later on in the evening, fee 32wks x

Hey I just noticed this post and came for a nosey in the hope that you guys could fix me.
I'm 19+1 and have suffered from Acid Reflux since I was about 13 (thats ages 13 not 13 weeks pregnant).
I get all the same symptoms as heartburn but nothing relieves it
have tried all of the above to no avail.
Will have to keep on suffering i guess!

im gratful i only suffer whilest im pregnant lol.

Jan 28, 2008 5:31PM

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
