Hunka Hunka Burnin' Love

But I wasn't lovin' the burnin'

When you're pregnant and already having problems with heartburn (and have reflux issues to begin with) don't get a second helping of dinner (mmmm....Cowboy Cornbread!), no matter how deliciously tasty it is!

I was awakened at 3:30 this morning with the most horrendous heartburn/indigestion. I couldn't sleep and all I could think about was this burning. I got my big TV-watching pillow and tried to go to sleep propped up on that. I finally woke up about 5:00 and ditched the big pillow. I even called work and said I'd be about an hour late so I could get a bit more sleep in. And I was only about 45 minutes late.

I'll be continuing the Zantac morning and night...

Yes young grasshopper you have learned lesson well!! Just say no!!

Heartburn during pregnancy just sucks!! I honestly think that pregnant women make up 90% of the those who purchase hearburn medications!

So happy to leave heartburn in the delivery room!
