  • I had it with my last and with this one.
    I took Tums, but that didn't help very very quickly.
    I ended up getting prescription Prilosec.

  • Pepcid AC. They're like tums only WAY better! They work faster and longer then tums. But ask your doctor id its ok first. I didnt have bad heartbur until like 34 weeks but it kept goin for like 4 months AFTER i had her. It was GOD AWEFUL!
