I am almost 37 weeks pregnant with my second child and have some awful heartburn. With my first son I started getting bad heartburn around 7-8 months and as soon as he was born it went away. Tums were a lifesaver.
With this pregnancy I started getting heartburn around 4 months and Tums have been working until about two weeks ago. Now nothing seems to help except sometimes eating a cold popsicle.
Night time is the worst. I will often wake up with my whole throat and mouth burning, and often sitting up won't help either. Being propped up on pillows doesn't help much either. The doctor says heartburn and pregnancy are normal, she has no suggestions.
I have tried going to bed full, going to bed not full, drinking liquid before bed, no liquid before bed... all sorts of combinations.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what has helped them deal with heartburn? It is such a miserable thing and I can't seem to come up with anything else to try...
