Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.
Congratulations on ur pregnancy !
Well continue to slowly step off the meds....and make sure u r avoiding foods that will trigger a flare...keep in mind being pregnant alone is cause for a flare....it goes along with the territory....so be patient and eat crackers instead of taking the med....this is as u r cutting back for those inbtwn med flares....
I had this issue while pregnant and always had saltines with me.
Hope this helps.
If it doesn't work, and you are not able to get off the meds, don't worry about it too much---I think I took PPis through several of my pregnancies without any problem.
Did you children have any adverse effect to the meds?
Unfortunately I don't have a food trigger, it can happen with any food.
Thanks for your replies :-)
It may be u r in a flare and that is y u do not know individual triggers, but u should avoid certain foods, greasy, acidic, spicy, and carbonated bevs....and caffeine.....so coffee and some teas.
I had it so bad one time I got the reflux from water, but that is bcuz everything was so upset, and u have to stick to the modification of ur diet and lifestyle to help calm it down....
My children did not have any adverse effects from the medication. I don't really have any specific food triggers, either. I have severe reflux and eosinophilic esophagitis. I quite often sleep in my recliner.
