Does everyone pregnant get heartburn
Does every woman who is pregnant get heartburn? Im 25 and havent had heartburn a day in my life. Maybe if I eat certain foods I won't get it?

Every pregnant woman experiences different symptoms so it's not a definite that you'll get it and even if you get it this time doesn't mean you'll get it next time.
With heartburn in pregnancy it's not so much the things you eat, your body has to get ready to give birth therefore produces hormones which relax certain joints/ligaments and part of that is the 'little flap' that keeps your stomach acids from rising back up. So even if you avoid certain foods, if that little flap doesn't stay shut then chances are you may get heartburn.
I had never had it either but started to get it towards the end of my first pregnancy, now with my second it's been really bad and started a lot earlier :(
If you do get it, I've read that having smaller, more frequent meals may help (hasn't worked for me). Also, I'm in Australia but do you have Fruit Tingles where you are? They're a fizzy lolly that I found helped a bit - something to do with the fizzing that helps apparently!
At the end of the day I think heartburn is one of those yucky pregnancy symptoms that you just have to cross your fingers you don't get!
All the best with your pregnancy :)

I dodnt have heartburb a day in my life untill i got pregnant with my fiest at 24. But only chocolate gave me heartburn.  After i delivered her i ended up having my gall bladder removed which has gave me a little more than before but it subsided eventually.  Im pregnant with #2 and the heartburn has come back. Its not severe or even worth taking anything for it but its more common this round. Peoples bodys change during pregnancy and were all different so its hard to know untill you personally experience it.

With my first I had literally nothing. Couldn't tell you I was pregnant I had no symptoms in sight. This time first trimester, I was nauseous all the time, couldn't eat certain food, a glass of water gave me heart burn. Now things have slowed for the most part.  I'm 14 weeks today
