Feel the Burn!!!

No not the muscle kind of exercise burn - heartburn. One of the many joys of prego-hood including but not limited to an every changing and expanding waist line and stretch marks. So heartburn... When I was prego-fied with little E I had horrible heartburn in the 2nd and especially 3rd trimesters - it started in the evening and then it never seemed to stop there at the end. Fortunately - well maybe not for her - but fortunately for me my mother-in-law is a heartburn expert - well not really but she had the perfect solution Rolaids soft chews. I think I even got some in my stocking that Christmas when I was pregnant with E. This little babies were awesome. Not only were they not horribly chalky but they actually lasted more than 2.5 seconds like any of the tabs of Rolaids or Tums.

So why I am a second time around heartburn sufferer when I know what the solution is to my problem? I LOVE this... Rolaids soft chews were recalled and taken off the market because "consumer reports of foreign materials in the product, including metal and wood particles." Awesome! A. the solution to my problem is off the market and there is not anything I have found that is remotely comparable. B. Really??? Wood and metal particles??? I ate these like candy for weeks when I was pregnant with E!!!

I'm not worried about the later just frustrated with the former and patiently waiting for Rolaids to get their act together and get the 'clean' version of the softchews back on the market!


  1. gosh I was so excited when i started to read this blog that you had found something that could work for my heartburn problems... for now I'll just stick with consuming mass amounts of yogart I guess

  2. For real... does yogurt work for you? I am getting desperate here especially at night!!!!!!!
