Hey everyone,

I am 3 years post RYN as of December 1st 2011.  I am 19 weeks pregnant with baby number 4 (2 since surgery).  This one is different.  The first 3 were identical.  I swear though this past week has been the hardest.  I can't eat, I feel like I have heart burn in my belly when I know that I can't have it.  I am constantly violently vomiting.  The doctor has had me on 3 different things already.  The insurance is being STUPID.  What am I supposed to do with 12 zofran.  I need one a day.  So which days should I take it.  UGH.  I am so tired and can't sleep.  Actually have to take Unisom to help that.  I am tired of throwing up and tired of being sick and tired.  Should I start eating some Tums just to say I have tried everything?  I'm miserable...

you CAN have heart burn... i took the max dose of tums EVERYDAY while pregnant with my last daughter... really i could have spit fire.. i would vomit acid... try it.. whats the worst that could happen?... diet coke used to help me with being nausious... which zofran are you taking? i found the one 8 mg sublingual one helped the most and the quickest... altiods helped... what are they saying about the zofran? are they only going to cover 12 a month? or will they only give you 12 at a time? if they will only give you 12 at a time... have your dr call in a refill before you are out... good luck.

I had no idea that I could have heartburn I didn't think there was acid in my stomach.  Geesh I feel dumb lol.

The insurance will only let me get 12 a month.  I think its stupid because what is that going to do.  I have to pick and choose what days to take it and hope I picked the worst ones lol.

unfortunately heartburn can and does happen... I had RNY 4 1/2 years ago and when I was pregnant my heartburn started back up and I still get it now (she's 17 months). Try eating little bits of bland things often. It was suggested to me to get oyster crackers. Eat 1 or 2 every few minutes. It worked wonders for me! You can also try peppermint or ginger tea. They will help with the nausea and tummy troubles.

Good luck!

With my son I had heartburn from four weeks tell the day I delivered him.I took one Zaneta and a zofran a day.Will he not give you more then doctor gives me a thirty day supply at a time.Check with him some do it because one pill is close to $30 and some insurance dont cover it maybe thats what he did that.

May my Angles rest in peace.....

He gave me 30 with 6 refills but the insurance will only let me have 12 with 1 refill.  GRRRR.  My first 2 pregnancys I had heartburn something awful from day 1 till the day they cut me open and took the babys out.  My 3rd baby was postop and I had some discomfort but I didn't think I could get it so I just kept eating to curb it off.  This one is AWFUL but nothing like it was with the first 2.
