    Default Is this heartburn?

    I woke up in the middle if the night and my throat felt like it was burning. It also felt like I could vomit if I tried to. I've been getting a bit if reflux lately but this felt like reflex plus a burning throat.

    Yup sure sounds like heartburn, I used to get it all the time when I was pregnant. I'd expeccially get it at nite and it would often wake me up, I'd have a burning sensation in my throat and often some acid reflux... not fun at all!I found gaviscon and mylanta tablets worked well, if you don't want to go for medications yet try full fat milk or chocolate milk, yogurts are also good, sparkling water and sleeping with your upper body elevated. Hope this helps!

    Yes it's heartburn. I was up everynight for a week vomiting. Try to have an earlier dinner. 20mls of Mylanta after dinner did wonders for me. Your digestion slows right down in the later stages of pregnancy. Sleep elivated if you can but i found i couldnt possily stay like that all night.
