I have been so very blessed during this pregnancy to have very little indigestion or acid reflux. I have friends who were plagued with it from early in the 1st trimester, whereas, for me, I could eat just about anything and feel totally fine.
Note the past tense there, because the 3rd trimester has changed everything.
Last week I couldn’t figure out why my sore throat was getting so much worse post-cold than it was during the cold until a friend suggested reflux. And the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. The theory was confirmed when I woke up at 2 in the morning the other night and could not just feel the acid, but could trace a perfect line of burning pain from my stomach to my throat. Nevermind that every time I bend over now I feel it rise up. It’s really not pretty.
Since I don’t have another doctor’s visit until later this week, in the meantime I decided to ask some other experts- current and former pregnant women. On twitter. Which is just like asking a doctor. And I got 8 great tips that I’m going to try out this week in hopes of helping restore my sleep and save my poor throat.
