Heartburn help

I have tried Tums and Pepto and nothing is helping, I know its a normal pregnancy thing but is there anything else I could try? a drink or something to eat that might help it go away?

  • I know the feeling. I had heart burn with two of my pregnancies. My doctor to me to take tums. I carried around a bottle of tums. Check with your doctor to see whats the best plan for you.

  • Good luck! I have had it really bad with all 3 pregnancies. I have found drinking Milk helps me. Other than that...I just take 4 tums after a meal.

  • Smaller meals and snacks in between and you may want to try papaya capsules they work great on HB. Congrats

  • I figured out that tomatoes or tomato sauce was causing it for me. Can you figure out what is causing it?

  • Well today I had perogies for lunch, chocolate chip cookies and cheese quesidillas for dinner (or however you spell it) but its a daily thing and it happens even when I dont eat anything acidic. It kinda sucks because pretty much anything gives me heartburn now, idk why but I can eat peperoni fine
