Heartburn During Pregnancy

Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me? Heartburn

Pregnancy books warn of heartburn bouts, but I was shocked and often horrified by the severe burning that ruptured in my chest when I was last expecting. I take some of the blame since I craved hot sauce and Asian food and was not about to deny myself. As a result, I slept with TUMS on my nightstand and downed a Ginger Ale on a moment's notice.

This time around, I've only encountered the pain a couple of times though I still have my last trimester to conquer. And, Tabasco and spicy Kung Pao chicken are on the back burner. Did you experience heartburn while expecting?
