The Cure

Heartburn.

I had it during my previous pregnancies.

Frick and Frack were born with TONS of hair, following the old wives tale.

Frick had a mullet.  I had to fight the urge to put bows in his hair.

In addition to the gobs on hair on his head, Frack had the hairiest arms, ears, shoulders, and bum.  🙂

Heartburn is also my biggest complaint during this pregnancy.

(I am thankful that is the worst thing I am dealing with!)

Tums are working for immediate relief, but not long term.

I ran out of Tums today.

So now I am turning to ice cream.

    I had the worse heartburn with my last pregnancy. I had to take zantac (otc) and surprise, #3 was bald. If memory serves me correctly, the only thing that made me feel better – mcd’s french fries.

    I didn’t know ice cream would help with that. I will have to keep that in mind. 🙂

    Ice cream is definitely the way to go. I think I ate it almost every night during both pregnancies.

    Heartburn is the worst! I had it with both pregnancies and they both were born with full heads of hair. Maybe there is some truth to the wivestale afterall.

    I love that you posted a link to the Wikipedia entry for a “mullet”. You are hilarious! Here’s to a happy rest of the pregnancy!

    Yep, I vote for asking you Ob/Gyn – there is no reason you should have to suffer – not that eating ice cream is suffering 🙂
