  • I took pepcid 20 mg twice a day. You can get it over the counter. I always made sure I took it in the evening before bed or else I couldnt sleep. I'm not sure if prilosec or zantac is approved for third trimester. I would ask a pharmacist before buying, they should know or have the resources to find out

  • honey, i have heard this when you have heartburn this late it's because your baby has a lot of hair. My son was born with a full set of black hair and I had heartburn, but, I didn't do anything about it because, everyone kept telling me don't take anything...I think that's all I heard while I was preggie...I'd love to know when your baby is born if she/he had hair.
