  • Don't use too much Tums or Maalox(Milk of Magnesia)my doctor told me too much calcium can actually cause problems during pregnancy.
    Acids like vinegar, and citrus
    Fried or oily foods
    Heavily salted foods
    And sit upright for two hours after eating and don't eat large amounts.

  • You could technically eat antacids... but my doctor gave me a prescription!!! Worked longer, and he explained Tums just create more acid in the long run

  • Tums smoothies are 10 times better than regular tums. Sometimes laying down will help because it alleviates (sp?) the pressure that is causing the heartburn in the first place. :)

  • This tastes gross but works - put a teaspoon of baking soda in water & drink it. It really does not taste good but works!

    I so remember this part of late pregnancy - you have my sympathy!

  • When you get a chance to get out of the house, get some Pepcid complete. My doc recommended it and it's awesome!! No more pain and it works fast.
