  • I had Tums with me WHERE EVER I went!! I had heartburn the worst with my 2 boys - horrible! Not AS much with dd. They say if you have heartburn your baby will have lots of hair......that old wives' tale was true for me :) My boys had TONS and dd had very little lol

  • I took different things during different pregnancies. Zantac is what usually worked the best.

  • eating ice chips was the only thing that helped me. Zantac, Tums, and other drug type acid reducers can end up making your heart burn WORSE later on.
