I startle awake most nights with the burp/puking issue now that heartburn has fully set in so I fully sympathize.  My PCP suggested I talk to my OB about the medication Aciphex.  It’s stronger than pepcid but is a category B prescription and thus supposedly safe for pregnancy.  I was given a few samples and boy does it help me.  I have an appointment with my OB next week and I’ll be asking for a prescription.

I wish I had some advice for you regarding the gagging in general but, alas, I don’t.

@cheese:  Hum. Seriously. You’ll feel like a giant goober, but after Mrs. DG said it helped with gagging during toothbrushing, tons of us have tried it and it totally works. I’ve tried a couple of times when not brushing my teeth- works then too.

Not a permanent or long-term solution, necessary (particularly if you’d like to STAY married), but consider it.

Ugh – I remember all the burping with surprises. Boo! I’m so glad to not have the constant reminder of what I ate for the last meal.

I wish I had some advice for ya – but I got nothing 🙁 Does drinking water or milk help? What about hot water instead of just regular?

Yes, I’ve tried Mrs. DG suggestion too and it works. I get really gaggy if I eat too much. Have you tried eating very small portions and eating more frequently? I also found that certain foods make me more likely to gag.. milk especially. I also try to limit how much water I drink with my meals.

I gag for about 10 mins after brushing my teeth! 🙁 yuck!

I try to stop the “burps with suprises” and gags by eating smaller portions and trying to eat slower/take tiny bites and really really chew!

@cheese: I’m telling you – pregnancy is a human science experiment. You are constantly ‘testing’ what works best. Had a good day – try to figure out why. Had a bad day – try to figure out why. You finally figure something out and it changes!

I need to make a list of what worked for me before I forget it all so I can reference it on the next go round!

Does ginger help?  Actual ginger candies, not ginger ale.  That was by far the best remedy for me.  I puked until 21 weeks, but luckily not often!

You can ask your doctor to if you can try a medicine called Reglan, it helps increase stomach movement forward instead of backward.  Hope this helps!

@crissycakes: My vet prescribes reglan for my cat (it is a human drug that can be used in small doses in some animals) and it REALLY works. Every few months, she has a gagging and throwing up spell. Reglan is the ONLY thing that stops it. It really really works! LOL!
