Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

It is just stomach acid, part of the heartburn / acid reflux problem.  Stop the gingerale, it is acidic...if you were just nauseous it might help, but unfortunately it's just adding more acid to what your body is already producing.  Keep hydrated, and eat tiny bits of crackers and such to help quell the acid.  Don't eat any big meals, just more tiny meals.  Remember, dairy products are also acidic...it may help to look up a list of foods to avoid when you have heartburn, and see what meds your doc may approve to help.  I've had this happen with all my pregnancies..it's gross, and it's irritating, but it will all be worth it!
