  • I didnt. It was my only complaint while pregnant. It was horrific. I would sit up in bed all night and if I tried laying down would literally choke on acid. I had an RX for Zantac, which at the time wasn't OTC. It didn't help. I chewed Tums like they were M&M's. Nothing helped. I tried drinking milk and that REALLY made the acid come up. Everyone said baby would have lots of hair when born(there is scientific relevence to that) but mine came out bald as could be. And interestingly, I had far less acid reflux with 2nd baby and she came out with a dusting of peach fuzz.
