    I was on the prescription version of Prilosec last time and this time I've been on protonix since day one. I still take tums sometimes tho.

    Ummmmm...I could do the chips but when I'm feeling gross, coke just makes it worse. Ummmmm, chips....

    Ya, that's sort of what I was thinking...but it's acid, not real food, right? I haven't had that yet this pregnancy but I definitely did at the end last pregnancy. I'm just getting run of the mill indigestion I think. I use to get it sometimes when I wasn't pregnant but it has picked up since my BFP. I spend a LOT of time burping...but nothing really comes up. I guess that part is good. It's normally in the evening and sometimes I'll have it two evenings in a row and then not for a few days. It's odd.

    Yeah sounds like mild indigestion. Mine is definitely acid, not food. I've woken up in the middle of the night chocking on stomach acid (lovely, right?). The "good" thing is that I ONLY have this issue pregnant so only a few more weeks...

    Ya, I think I'm not having it yet because this baby is hanging out front more. I had pretty brutal lung issues last time that I haven't had this time. Our house is 3 floors and last pregnancy I couldn't walk from the basement to the top floor all at once. I'd be completely out of breath. This time it's fine. My stomach isn't as high either I don't think. I think baby is 'hanging out' more and giving my organs a break.

    My DH said "you know your wife is really pregnant when she needs to take breaks walking DOWN the stairs". LOL

    It was generally because Robbie's feet were at my gallbladder and he LOVED kicking! I would stop due to pain

    You really don't want to know! I thought I was in labour at 24 weeks Went in and they were worried it was my appendix until I let them know that I had already had it removed 15 years before. They thought they were going to have to operate that night...12 weeks of little feet at my gallbladder sucked. U/S techs would watch him kick me and say "bet that hurts" - no kidding! I was on morphine and could still feel some of the pain! Robbie was home from the NICU for 4 days (had been there 5 days) when I had emergency surgery which had been scheduled for my due date.
