I am currently 32 weeks and counting until my little boy or girl- its a surprise, finally comes. My husband, kids and i are so very excited. My pregnancy, for the most part is going well. A1c has been 5.7 pretty much throughout the whole pregnancy, baby is right on target for weight and measurements. I am going to weekly appointments and going twice a week for NSTs to monitor baby’s activity.
The only thing that is really killing me and making things totally unbearable besides the extra weight, is the heartburn. Oh its so evil, i think it won’t show its face or its gone and then it comes back around to snake its ugly head and debilitate me. I have 3 wonderful kids and a very supportive and helpful husband. I don’t like sleeping on the couch but I have to in order to sleep sitting up straight at night. This is my very last pregnancy. So i’m done making babies after this but this pain is worse than contractions at times. I’m taking 2-20 mg pills of pepcid a day and drinking maylox like its milk.
The heartburn has gotten worse with each pregnancy. I know what its from, its my stomach getting moved up from the baby. I NEVER have heartburn outside of pregnancy. So I’m going to throw a heartburn going away party after my sweet baby is born and eat with relief finally.
I usually like natural remedies to things/issues/pain if it really works. Anyone have any good natural remedies for horrible, life draining, heart attack symptom heartburn? I won’t stop taking my pepcid and maylox yet, but I would like to incorporate some veggies that might work or other natural remedies if they are worth a shot. An added issue to all this is that when the heartburn is really bad, my BGs go up a little on the high side, i’m guessing from the stress its putting my body through.
