Word to the pregnant

So at the end of November I had a doctors appointment, but my midwife was gone so I had to see some other doctor, who seemed too young to know what he was doing. Anyway, I told him about my ridiculous amounts of heartburn and he told me to get Zantac over-the-counter. So I did. And suffered miserably the whole holiday season. When I came back and saw my midwife in January I told her how bad it still was. She told me to take Prilosec over-the-counter, that it usually seemed to work better during pregnancy. Hallelujah. I haven't had the burn once since. Wish I'd known that over Christmas when I was eating so much. So anyway, if you get heartburn as miserably as I do, give the Prilosec a try. Figured since I know so many pregnant people I'd pass it on.

LOL, I just thought of Chy Ayn, too, Lindsey! Luckily that is one of the things I don't usually deal with during pregnancy. I've been so sick this pregnancy, that I think I've had enough of my share of other things. So glad you found something that works for you, Jen!
