keightlynn Posted October 21, 2014 Share Posted October 21, 2014 I never had any issue with heartburn or anything before getting pregnant, but since I've been pregnant it's been getting increasingly worse. At this point (I'm 25 weeks pregnant) it's full on GERD. My Ob has given me a prescription for Zantac, which I'm hoping will help, but it so bad that I get esophageal spasms, which are aweful. Last night I thought I was going into anaphylaxis because my throat was spasming so badly. I also wake up several times a night with burning and usually have to sit up for awhile. I'm probably taking close to 15-20 tums daily. Everything I read about GERD said to avoid high fats, meats, etc and to eat plain foods like bread, yogurt, etc. I want to eat healthy, but I need to get this under control. I'm worried I could be doing permanent damage here. Does anyone have experience or suggestions of Whole30 (or even just paleo at this point) foods that I might be able to tolerate? I really don't know what to do hear and I hear the heartburn just gets worse and worse from this point as baby grows.... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
