    Do you really believe that your condition can be diagnosed without a medical exam?

    Hi christelle51

    First and foremost visit your doctor for confirmation of pregnancy. Ask your doctor the questions you are asking here. Early on in pregnancy some experience either severe or mild morning sickness or all day nausea, then later on in pregnancy some experience heartburn. To be clear on your queries consult the professional...your doctor....

      Hi christelle51

      Many congratulations on your good news. You never know perhaps pregnancy may improve things with changing hormones. Just try and relax and enjoy this happy event...

    hi Christelle, I feel for you being so scared. But the first thing you must do is get a test. If you can't get an appointment at your doctors soon enough go to your local pharmacy or supermarket. Pregnancy tests are very accurate now and not knowing will drive you mad so get yourself tested as quickly as you can. If you know what you are faced with you can then decide what you want to do next.

      well congratulations I hope everything works out ok for you. Ask your doctor for a diet plan which helps avoid reflux as much as possible. Good luck!

    Reflux is common while pregnant. If you are pregnant, your doctor will be able to give you the best of care to ensure all goes well. You do not need to worry about anything. Worrying and stress can cause you to have complications with your pregnancy . Try not to envisage problems that have not yet materialized. Instead, stay as calm as possible a d discuss any concerns with your doctor.
