I'm 20wks and I've experienced heartburn before but never like this, I mean this is horrible it's so painful I'm just wondering if it's even normal for it to be this bad!?!? Yeah i know not everything is safe to take my Ob was the one that told me about zantac but it's just not working

Im also 20 weeks. Better get it checked.. Before i knew i was pregnany i went to a cardiologist because of the burning sensation in my chest, i had 2 ecg readings with a month interval and she diagnosed me with either a blocked artery vs. GERD.. Im only 29 so my chances of a cardiac prob was low,but still had to be ruled out.. Im a coffee addict, 5-6 cups a day, so that predisposes me to Acid reflux. I didnt know i was prego that time, so i told her i wasnt, when she asked me about it. I was scheduled for a stress echo test after but was not able to have it sinceci disxovered i was preg.. Since then i havent felt any chest/burning pain. But i still informed my OB about it.

I got it really bad too!especially in bed. I just stopped eating a big meal at night and avoid sodas and heavy greasy food. Also, I immediately eat 2 tums as soon as I feel it coming on
