Hi all! I feel like such a lame duck this time around. Between cleaning and running after a 2 year old i'm lucky if I get to check in once a week let alone post
so i had my 16 week appointment last week and baby is doing great. HB was fine and my fundus is measuring on track LOL. I scheduled my anatomy scan for May 5th but we still aren't sure if we are going to find out or not My mom and MIL are driving me nuts bugging me about it so I think I might just cave and do it.
And is anyone else getting heartburn already? It's been horrible for me this week. The last 3 days I've had it every night after dinner no matter what I eat. i had horrible heartburn with ds but it didn't hit unil close to 30 weeks, i'm afraid it's going to last the entire pregnancy.
how is everyone else doing?

glad to know you still exist!
Sounds like you had a good appointment last week.
I've been suffering from heartburn from the first couple of weeks, and I've been on Protonix for about a month and this last week I've started getting breakthrough heartburn. Gonna have to stock up on chilled bananas again.

Glad everything looked good at your appt!
I've been getting heartburn lately too. It's been so different with each pregnancy but I'm still holding out hope that once things rearrange a little more as baby grows it might let up again

Great to hear from you!
Gald your appointment went well!
Sorry about the heartbrun. I had it for the first time in my life on Monday for about a day and a half but havent' had it since. My doctor thought because I have been so constipated, everything is backing up
So sorry that you're having bad heartburn! Pregnancy heartburn is the WORST! I've only had it on and off, depending on what I eat. I seem to get it when I eat something really acidic (spaghetti sauce, or orange juice, for example). So I've been staying away from those types of foods. With DD, I didn't have it until the end of the pregnancy. It was awful. I hope you can get some relief from it!
Yay for a good 16-week appt. I have acid reflux (when I'm not pg) so I've been on prescription prevacid since before the pg. I've been having really bad reflux and heartburn this pg so far, and a few nights I had to pull out the tums. My cravings have shifted recently though and I've been eating a ton of fruits and veggies and it's made a huge difference. I'm actually quite shocked how much better I feel.

Yeah for a good appointment.
I've had heartburn bad for a few weeks now. It hits at least 4 out of 7 days a week. I just tend to take a few Tums before I go to bed and keep some in my purse for at work at all times. It doesnt seem to matter what I eat lately I still get it.
you are the reason i don't believe the heartburn = a hairy head on a baby myth lol
I've only had very mild heartburn at night and if I drink some milk it is better. I hope it gets better for you! Though I have had crazy BH and you probably remember me having them with dd. The midwife said it is perfectly normal, even this early, but I'm with you - am I REALLY going to have to deal with this more than HALF of the pregnancy? ugh.
