I'm currently 25 weeks pregnant with my first little one and for about the past 2.5 months have had the absolute worst acid reflux/GERD to the point that it's causing me to cough incessantly and I'm absolutely miserable. I literally hack all day long and cannot stop. Sometimes I have the normal acid burning sensation, but the majority of the time it's just coughing. I don't eat a lot of fried foods or sweets that typically trigger acid reflux and I've never had it prior to pregnancy. It just seems like everything triggers it. Anyone else experience this?! I know reflux is a common pregnancy symptom, but I've never known any pregnant women that coughed nonstop like this. It's to the point that it's making me incontinent bc I'm coughing so much and so hard.
Because of another health condition I have I can't take any proton pump inhibitors (which pretty much all reflux meds fall into this category). I've been trying to eat foods that naturally neutralize stomach acid (green vegetables, apples, almonds) and it does help, but I can't ONLY eat those things. If anyone else has struggled with this and found some type of solution aside from PPI medications id love to hear it! My doctors have no real recommendations at this point
