  • For heartburn- tums!! and don't lay down during heartburn either.. make sure you're sitting up, or have yourself propped up with some pillows if you're laying in bed.

    For the pain you're having in your sides... that's from your body stretching out so much, it sucks! I'm 27 weeks now, and went through (and am still going through) the same thing. Take some tylenol, I suggest Extra strength Rapid release (it's safe to take dring pregnancy) and get a heating pad, and just lay down and relax. Make sure the heating pad isnt on too high, or for too long though. But with that, you should be fine.
    Good Luck :)

  • heartburn try drinking a shotglass size glass of vinegar. just down it really fast and the heartburn goes away almost instantly i guarantee you.

    as far as the pain.. just switch positions every so often, i get it all the time, and its getting worse and worse the farther i get... lol
