Can someone please just sum up what having heartburn feels like, I know it's common in pregnant women so I knew it would come I just never knew how it would feel,  I want to make sure this is really heartburn that I'm feeling and not anything serious bc this feeling truly *****, its feels like my throat and chest are just collapsing (that's a bit dramatic) but it really is an uneasy feeling, my throat is very irritated, my whole inside just feels really gasy...how ia heartburn suppose to feel :( ??????

It literally feels like your chest and neck are on fire on the inside. Like they might implode.

Feels like ur going to throw up fireballs .it ***** try to eat less acidic and spicy foods ...and drink milk or icecream...watch what you eat because certain foods trigger it ..for me its pizza, ketchup, hot chips, spicy noodles ..
