3 Bumps

Heartburn

Im 38 weeks and have been having really really bad heart burn right before/ and all during the night. I've been told by my Dr. that I can take Tums, but they dont work at all. And I've try'd laying on my left side, and lifting my upper body higher while sleeping. But nothings working.
Is there anything ealse thats safe for me to take? or something I can do.
I need some sleep!

  • Try to watch what you eat and drink any spicy or citrus drinks will make heartburn worse :( I had heartburn bad with both my girls I still do till this day :( Drink water and try Pepcid see if it works better GL
