I got heartburn starting at 8 weeks!

Mandy- you may never get it! When I was pregnant with my first I never got heartburn. But with my second I got it before 26weeks, and now with my third I've had it pretty much my whole pregnancy. Consider yourself very lucky. Best of luck to you!

Oo good news then, but im sure knowing my luck ill make up for it in some other way i have bad swollen feet and hands.

Mandy, don't claim that. :) lol You'll probably have a great remainder of the pregnancy! Other than heart burn, I haven't had any physical discomfort, so you'll be just fine! Do you know what you're having?

Mandy,,,,,, what you should really keep in mind is that every woman, as well as experience, is different. I am pregnant with my fourth child and I can tell you that I had little heartburn with my first, none with the second, TONS of it (acutally it turned into acid reflux) with my third and this time around,,,, I've had a little, but nothing too bad!! I didn't get it until my mid-7th month. Now, with the last one (which was my worst case ever), it seems like I had it all thru my pregnancy. So whether or not you'll get it??? Well, I don't think anyone, including your doctor, can answer that. It is just something that either develops or doesn't. As far as "when" to expect it,,,,, well, that again, knowone can really answer for you. It could hit you at anytime in your pregnancy. It could only happen when you eat certain foods (mainly acidic). And believe me,,, if (and when) you get it,,,, you'll know!!!

I never had hearburn until my 39th week of pregnancy and it got to the point where I felt like a dragon breathing fire. It is extremely uncomfortable and thank god that you dont have it!!
