  • Good luck with that. All I can tell you is to sit up and if you are trying to sleep than you should sleep elevated. Im pretty sure tums is still ok to take while your prego.

  • Papaya enzyme. You can pick up a bottle at Whole Foods or a local health food store.

  • worse thing you can do is drink milk...alot of people thinks it helps but it only does temporarily...dairy can actually trigger acid to go into overdrive...making your heartburn come back twofold later....also water can do the same thing...stay away from antacids that contain any calcium (dairy!!) for me prevacid works (its over the counter now!) and pepto does help a little...otherwise you just wait it out...
