    With bloody heartburn :( I only get it at night a have started propping my head up a bit so it doesn't sit in my throat but that doesn't seem to work anymore l.

    Nearly been sick twice and I feel like crap. I don't even have any gavison cos the first time I had it it made me ill so I got rid of it. Can't stand the texture or taste of the stuff. Currently sat in the bathroom feelin extremely sorry for myself.

    Pip also now has hiccups so that's me awake for at least half an hour with that (on a positive note his hiccups are on the left again which means he had turned back round :dance:)

    Got mw tomorrow (Monday) so gonna see if there is anythin other than gavison I'm allowed. I can't go on like this :(

    Awww... Sorry you're suffering tonight... :(. Heartburn is a killer. Don't know whether it works, but they say a glass of (warm) milk helps relieve it a bit. Might be worth a try?
    I have been up for hours... Can't sleep... Am having crampy pains... Don't think it's anything, but am trying to time them - very random, ranging from 7 to 10 mins apart. Think I will try and get some sleep just in case!
    Hope you manage to get some relief from heartburn. Xx

    Cheers hun. Found some strawberry gavison tablets in my handbag - equally as gross as the liquid but managed to force myself to eat two. Hopin they kick in soon so I can try and get some sleep. Probably slept for about 2 hours so far tonight cos I keep wakin up with either heartburn or Pip fidgeting.

    When I went to bed he still had his back ony right, but seems to have flipped during the night. Gonna make myself a drink and was back to bed.

    Hope u manage to get some sleep too hunny xx

    :( poop isn't it!!! I think you can get chewable rennie so less chalky. I hate gaviscon too although I've only ever taken tablets.

    Hope your mw has a cure x x

    I use Rennie and Rennie deflatine. It has definitely helped, but also not laying completely flat helps too. xx

    I quite rate Asdas own version of Gaviscon! Its a lot cheaper too and I felt it worked so much better. Still tastes like crap though lol x

    i get this all the time and it is so frustrating. i have been using rennie, liquid gaviscon and morrisons own chalk tablets (which are nice and fruity). it also helped when the midwife explained that these things should be taken after meals and before going to bed (as instructed on the packet doh!) not just as and when needed. felt like an idot for not realising this but its worked.
