Things that give me indigestion/heartburn

If you have never been pregnant, stop reading now. You will not get this post. You will probably think I am lying. I am not. I wish I were lying or exaggerating. Really. Really. Wish.

1. Eating. Doesn't really matter what. Just eating.

2. Drinking. Could be as innocent as water. Yeah.

3. Laying down. It may have been 6 hours since I last ate. Don't lay down. Period. Or else heartburn strikes. Sleeping in a semi-sitting position? Not comfortable.

4. Activity. Any sort. Going to the gym? More painful than normal. Chasing the boys? Ouch. Bathtime (giving the boys a bath, that is. not my own bathtime) ... don't even ask.

5. Bending over. Makes me feel like I am going to throw up and have heartburn at the same time.

So, if you have not guessed, my crazy reflux/heartburn from Miles' pregnancy has returned and is way worse this time. This time around it has started earlier and seems to be more often. With Miles, it was mostly set off by laying down. This time, it is all the time.

Don't get me wrong though, I would NOT trade this pregnancy for anything. I would not trade my comfort for not having another sweet boy to love. I am enjoying sweet BabyBoo and trying to enjoy every minute of what should be my last pregnancy.

Now, to summarize. Awake=heartburn. Asleep (sitting up)=heartburn. Breathing=heartburn. Any questions? :)
