  • I feel your pain. I had this problem too and by daughter turned out with lots of hair! So you can look forward to that. But my doctor prescribed Prilosec to me. I had no problems after that.

  • my DR prescribed something for me, but it was near the end of the pregnancy so i never ended up getting it filled. I had it BAD, all the time, i know it was better not to eat near bedtime, but Tums usually were okay for me. but the ole myth was wrong for baby had very little hair.

  • I had that problem up until when I went to the doctor Thursday, My doctor prescribed Zantac its worth buying. Seriously I had heartburn 24/7 I just could not get rid of it with Rolaids or Tums.

  • My doctor told me I could take zantac but I still didnt get it yet. I keep forgetting until 4 a.m. when my heartburn makes me want to cry. I have been taking rolaids which rarely work. I need to get me some of that

  • I had heartburn for what it seemed to be about the entire last 3 months of my pregnancy, it was terrible. I ate tums constentally. Which didnt help, I just suffered. I felt like I never slept because of it.

  • Seriously I kept heartburn until recently ! I was eating tums also like crazy. I was in tears it kept me awake either get Zantac prescribed for you or buy it. =] Take care.
