  • I had heartburn so bad with both of my pregnancies that Tums just turned it into fruity flavored heartburn. I'm now on a permanent Rx called Protonix. My "Babies" are 7 1/2 and 4 and the heartburn has never gotten better.

    Another thing to try is 1/8 teaspoon ginger mixed into 8 oz of whatever you're drinking. Ginger naturally calms the acids in your stomach.

  • Ask your doctor if taking Prilosec OTC would be ok... Most likely they will tell you yes, but honey, that baby is pushing right up on your stomach... There is nothing you can do but deliver!!!! Until then, try some Graham Crackers and milk. I give that to my patients when they don't have an antacid order. It usually temporarily helps. And sit up. Don't lay flat... not that that is easy to do anyway when you're pregnant. But up at about 30 degrees may alleviate it slightly.
