What do you use to stop your heart burn?

I have a tablespoon of mustard. What about you? We all know that heart burn comes along with pregnancy, so what do you use to get rid of it?

  • I ended up going through 4-5 different medications because I had it so bad it was causing me to throw up several times/day the entire 9 months.

  • Ugh..Don't miss heartburn! Avoid things that trigger it! Chocolate was a huge nono for me! Also- my doctor eventually prescribed some pepcid them? Good luck! P.S. Not to burst your bubble..but it can only get your belly expands and adds more

  • actually tums and rolaids both helped for about 15 minutes then it would come back and i eventually figured out that the best thing in the world for me to take was a good big drink of regular rid of it right away and it stayed away for a while sometimes days...but if i didnt have any coke or any other dark regular soda(diet didnt work at all) milk worked but i could only drink 2 percent cuz i had a bad reaction to regular would make me feel sick

  • I was taking tums but it wasn't helping a whole lot so the doc told me I could take Zantac
