the last time i had heart burn, i was in mexico, and i ate and drank my face off for 6 days. it was well worth the pain and in my head it meant that i was doing "all inclusive" the right way.
heartburn is something i've had maybe three times in my whole life...UP UNTIL NOW.
this was one of my first "signs" of being pregnant. i remember having heartburn after eating a chicken salad and thinking "hmmm... how can this be?" this lead me to google if heartburn was a symptom of being pregnant... the next day we took a pregnancy test.
little did i know that as the months went on that this heartburn would control my life. i started off getting it pretty bad at night before bed. i would try to fall asleep between the breaks of pain and it would be gone in the morning. then, it started rearing its ugly face during the school day... and now it is any time that i go more than an hour without eating...
i've been drinking gallons of water... and as a very last resort, i take a tums... which i will take if it becomes unbearable at night.
three more months and i am expecting to see an extremely hairy baby with all this heartburn. i know this discomfort will be well worth it come May... :)
