  • Yes it's normal. I'm at the end of my first/beginning of my second trimester. I get it around the area where my ribs aren't touching in the front (floating ribs?) Tums may help with it a little bit, try to carry them on you at all times. If it continues or gets worse (the tums aren't helping) you can talk to your doctor about another safe OTC antiacid or a possible prescription.

  • Tums do help a lot but if you don't have any, try milk. I am 17 wks with twins and whenever I get heartburn I just drink a big glass of milk and that takes care of it.
