The First of Many Whiny Posts

One of the things I have been battling over the past several weeks is heartburn. To be accurate, I battle this in my regular life, but this time around it has been particularly bad. Because I hate taking medicine, I've been trying all sorts of "natural remedies" to cure the constant flow of acid that winds its way up my esophagus to splash about in my mouth.

Yeah, they don't work.

I've cut out all of the "trigger foods," sleep propped up, stop eating a few hours before bed, blah, blah, blah. So today I decided to do the opposite and eat what sounded good, because everything I want is on the banished list.

Today's lunch consisted of some Totino's pizza (don't judge me people) and three jalepeno poppers. Who knows what the rest of the day will bring, but as of now, I feel fabulous.

I feel so bad for you, heartburn is the worst. You feel like your esophagus is being eaten away. I wish I knew something that would help, but alas I just ate antacids like candy and propped up when I slept like you mentioned. Hope the pizza and poppers treat you right!

My heartburn was the worst with my boys....maybe Spence will have a little bro to mentor!

You go girl, eat what you want! Should I bring you another Scotcharoo?

I think that's great to just eat whatever you want. If you're going to be kind of miserable, you might as well eat what you want anyway. :)

I hope it doesn't stay horrible for long.

I think it is the right of pregnant women to whine as much as they want...at least I did anyways.

Might as well eat what you want if your going to suffer anyway. I've heard that eating some plain yogurt after a meal can help. Hope the heartburn subsides soon!!

Sorry about the Heartburn. That does suck royaly. And don't feel bad about whining...I don't think Tiff reads this blog :) At least you don't turn into the Anger monster that I am...poor Matty. I just turned on him last night and he felt all wounded. Isn't your apt this week? Can't wait to hear the news and the due date! Good luck.

I was the same way when I was pregnant :S Wish I had some kind of magic cure for ya ... I ate a lot of mint candy. It didn't take it away, but the mint did seem to help a bit... and every little bit does seem to help!!

I agree, if you are going to get heartburn, get it from eating the stuff you love.
