Hi Mommies - I was just wondering if anyone expereinced severe reflux and/or hiccups during their pregnancy? I'm almost 38 weeks and can barely eat anything. I went to a GI Specialist yesterday and he basically told me that I should stay away form solid food and sip on protein shakes throughout the day. Does he realize that I'm prego and REALLY hungry?!?!?
I went through this with my first, Colin, for the last 6 weeks of my pregnancy and now I'm dealing with it again!!!! I literally get the hiccups 24/7...I wake up in the middle of the night with them!!! If I eat more than a few bites of food I feel like I'm going to vomit. I'm down to eating rice cakes, yogurt and small peices of protein bars. If I have a regular meal I vomit.
These are the questions I have:
If you've been through something similar, what helped you, if anything?
Was your Dr. concered about getting enough nutrition to the baby?
I thought I had it bad until I read this. I am so sorry! That must be awful! I will agree with Carrie, water definitely upsets my stomach (strangely enough), but I found with this pregnancy that Gatorade is a godsend. I didn't think it would be true but it really helped me. With the reflux, I did a lot of creamy foods and milk and tried to eat frequently and small. And tums, yes, lots and lots of tums... and I hate Tums. I also consume mad quantities of Clif Builder chocolate bars. They have great protein and they actually taste like candy.
Good luck, only a couple weeks to go!
