Need Ladies with Much Wisdom About Pregnancy Issues...

Hi Ladies. This is my first post as this site has been very helpful to me in the past. I am a 37 year old mother of a 17 year and I am currently 3 months pregnant (I know...What was I thinkin??? :-P ). As you can see, it's been almost 18 years since I've been pregnant and a lot of things are happening that I don't remember going on with my first pregnancy. The main thing is the freakin INDIGESTION! It's killing me. It's not exactly heartburn, it's just a stuffed feeling I get in my throat after a couple of bites of food. I remember I...

Experience W/ Colic Calm Gripe Water ? Prevacid/Zantac Not Working

My baby is 5 weeks old and was diagnosed a week ago with reflux (GER) which she's had probably since she was about 3-3.5 weeks old. She cries nonstop all day basically. She's on prevacid in the morning maalox max throughout the day (as needed) which provides very temporary relief (few minutes) and Zantac at night. It's been just over 5 days now and we're still not seeing much improvement. My ped GI said give it 2 weeks but that just seems ridiculous - you'd think by now I'd see a little improvement! I heard about Colic Calm gripe water....

Hearburn Relief During Pregnancy

Before I found out I was pregnant two weeks ago I was taking the generic form of Prilosec everyday. I have stopped taking that, but my heartburn/acid reflux is so, so bad now. Some nights, like tonight, I could cry it hurts so bad. My OB has told me I can chew some Tums...but I have such bad acid reflux those have never helped me. With my last pregnancy sucking on hard cinnamon candy helped me but this time it just makes it worse. I can't even drink water. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Lump Sensation in Throat During Pregnancy

This is my fifth pregnancy and I have this lump feeling in the base of my throat and I can feel part of the sensation spreading to my upper chest. If I gently press on the base of my neck in the triangle space where the neck and chest meet at the front it seems to go away until I release pressure. Sometimes it almost feels as if there is a flutter or contraction in my chest as well but my pulse appears steady. Is this something anyone else has experienced? It isn't painful at all just feels uncomfortable and tight.

Severe Sickness in Second!

This is my second pregnancy, and I'm 8 weeks along today. It seems like the moment I found out, I started getting sick. I was very ill throughout my last pregnancy, but i just don't remember feeling this down about it. I think it's because I have this sweet little girl who needs my attention and I've got my head in the toilet the second I get home from work. It's not just nausea and vomiting, but extreme dizziness, stomach cramps and diarhhea. My O.B.'s office just keeps givign me meds that my body violently rejects and ultimatly makes...
