I drink milk. I always have heartburn and that's the only thing that seems to help me. Medicine never helps so ill drink a small glass of milk.
The first time I had heartburn I took Prilosec. It works wonders! It's a 24 hour medicine. I highly recommend it and it's safe during pregnancy.
I told obgyn and they gave me a prescription for heartburn medicine and I finally got relief. If it's really bothersome ask ur obgyn about something stronger than tums and they will tell yu what yu can take.

If that doesn't help maybe ask your doctor if there is an over the counter medicine that they would recommend. Unless of course you are doing absolutely no medicines. If you get heart burn frequently eat a banana first before you eat anything else. It's what I do.
I was that way with my first ..I had to talk to my doctor and he gave me a nausea medicine and told me to take that with tums and if the tums didn't work he'd prescribe zantac or something ...if its that bad give them a call they may be able to call something in for you. You can also try the extra strength tums that's what I have to do with this baby ....

One cause of heartburn is celiac disease. This and lethargy were the ONLY symptoms my coworker was having. She's about 50 I guess. Her doctor checked her labs and she was positive for celiac disease. She had low levels of vitamin D and some other vitamins and minerals. No heartburn medicines were helping. Upper and lower endoscopy were done, and upper endoscopy showed the damage from the celiac disease. She went gluten-free.
Yes, I have with both of my pregnancies..
HORRIBLE heartburn! What can I do to help relieve it? And why does it happen with anything I eat???
This is the 5th night I've woken up throwing up because I've been getting heartburn. I'm soon to be 36 weeks. I've been taking tums and Pepcid OTC and it's not doing anything. Is there something else I should be trying? I'm scared one of these nights I will choke on the throw up because I'm sleeping when it happens.

Who here gets heartburn and what do you do about this? Do you avoid certain foods? I seem to get it all the time and I hate it. What can I do about this?
After doing that for about a week, I started having symptoms of heartburn - usually upon awakening and during the morning hours; it usually subsides by noon. When I eat during this time, I often feel the food going down the esophagus with some discomfort at times. My question is this - could this be a symptom of hypothyroidism/hyperthyroidism or related in any way to me taking half the dosage of levothyroxine? How should I proceed?
Hi Rhonda......it probably is just heartburn, however, if the pain is severe and you're feeling nauseated, you should go to the ER. It could be an ulcer. A couple months ago I thought I was just having severe heartburn, but it turned out to be 2 duodenal ulcers and it was a good thing I went to the er because they admitted me for 5 days. Better to be safe than sorry. Of course, it could be a heart attack as well, but you're pretty young for that.
