    Aww I feel your pain! :( Before getting pregnant I'd only ever had heartburn once before and it was shocking! I get to week 30 and it begins. I tried Gaviscon but it didn't help me either.

    I've heard that ice cold water may help, especially if you drink it the second you begin feeling it.

    Thankfully mine's calmed down over last few days. Probably jinxed myself now :(

    I get hoooge bottles of Gaviscon Advanced from the docs - could not be without it!!!

    Although the aniseed flavour didn't work for me which is a shame as I detest anything pepermint flavoured, but hey ho despite the gagging it works!!

    iv always suffered with it butduring pregnancy its been unreal

    'Also drinking water can actuallt make it worse cos drining will tell our tummy to produce acid
    although sometimes it can help to make you burp and get some wind up lol

    OH got the death stare the other day when he told me off for eating rennies like sweets. Id had 2 in an hour. I asked him if he had ever had heartburn and he said no so I told him to be quiet then until he's experienced it.

    Pregnancy heartburn is the worst thing ever. I'd rather spend the day with my head in the toilet just to avoid that awful burn and sting you get :(!

    I feel your pain hun. I tend to get it if I lay on my right side but not so much on the left.
    I got gaviscon on prescription but ran out and have heart burn as we speak. Only think that has worked tonight is being sick.

    I feel for you....I had it really bad there for couple of weeks..until I went to the doctors! Couldn't handle the pain anymore..he prescribed me a course of Ranitidine tablets...OMG best thing ever!!! I take 2 tabs a day..one in the morn and one after my tea at night. Gavison and Rennies did not help me one bit at all...hope this will help you! X x

    I've had awful heartburn. The antacid tablets I was buying were helping but only providing relief for about 15 mins! Now I have a bottle of peptac liquid on prescription and it's better - still have to take it a couple of times in the night to get enough sleep though - and it's really really thick - nasty to swallow but worth it!
