wow...my heartburn was EXCRUCIATING with my son. I would knock back 3-4 tums and wash it all down with a mouthful of Malox. for what it's worth, the heartburn stopped immediately after giving birth. been luckier with this one, but had some acid indigestion in the beginning and the doctor prescribed Prevacid for it. worked like a dream. maybe mention it to your doc.

Hi, I am 24 weeks also with heartburn. My doctor said tums is best, then you get your calcium too. 2 work for me, unless it is particularly bad, then i have to take 4. Also, try not to lie down right after eating.

I was told I could take pepcid ac tablets--they work good but they are really chalky! but they do come in berry flavors!

Ugghh, I have the same problem, the heartburn is killer!! I take Zantac, it's an acid reducer, and my ob ok'd it for me. Just a little pill to swallow and it's supposed to work for 12 hrs but I find I get about 8 hrs out of it. I've also recently re-discovered my love for chocolate milk!!! lol

I use Tums and Pepcid. Pepcid comes in a pill form so you don't have to chew it. It works great for me.

Milk works sometimes for me. Also mint tea helps a lot
