  • I feel for you :-( I had heartburn everyday with my first pregnancy that lasted all day and was really bad at night when I would try to lie down. I ate Tums like they were M&M's and was on an Rx for Zantac. Nothing helped. I started choking on the acid at night and it would keep me and dh up all night. I had to start sleeping sitting straight up in bed. It sucked. Wish I had a recliner back then.

  • I had heartburn so bad it made me sick - I threw up most days at least once. I tried Tums, Zantac, Pepcid, and a couple other things. Finally, Nexium was the only thing that worked.

  • Usually only sometimes at night before bed. Or if I eat pizza...

  • Tums and milk or ice-cream works well for me. Sometimes doctors can give you something stronger too.

  • Zantac has worked for me during this pregnancy. I have heartburn from the time I wake up until the time I wake up the next day. No fun! Talk to your doctor.

  • I pretty much have it all day long. I mean really how does bread give you heartburn? I try to drink lots of water and my midwife said if it gets too severe I can take mylanta.
