  • This will sound nuts but someone once gave me one of those bite size snickers when i had really bad heartburn and it worked the nasty acid taste in my throat went away and my chest felt better. Now I keep the dove dark chocolate singles on me whenever it gets bad :)

  • If it's only happening when you're laying down to go to bed, try sleeping in a sitting position. I had that problem with both pregnancies and it didn't seem to matter what I add or cut out of my diet, how small my meals were, or even how many tums/pepcid I took (last resort and it still didn't work). Sleeping sitting up on the couch helped - - it was the only way I could sleep for the last few months.
