I am new to this site and to pregnancy. I am 10 weeks and have had my first encounter with heartburn. While lying in bed this morning I suddenly had a sharp pain in my left chest area – after talking this over with a friend (a mother and RN) she suspects heartburn or acid reflux. I have never had any issues with this in the past, but am told that it is a common symptom of pregnancy. Although the sharp pain has diminished, a slight nagging pain has continued all day.
Does anyone have any suggestions for natural treatment of this or remedies to try? I found an online article suggesting herbs, but I do not want to try any herbs as they may be harmful for the baby?
I do plan to discuss this with my midwife on Wednesday morning, but your ideas and thoughts are gratefully appreciated before then.
