    I have the worlds worst indegestion all day and night, it has been bad all pregnancy, but now its just uncontrollable. The doctor gave me Gaviscone advance and I have been taking it all pregnancy, but it just doesnt stop it anymore. I have also started drinking some milk as someone said it was good for it, but its still here. Anyone got any suggestions of foods or drinks that might help? thanks julia x

    Sorry wont be much help as I have only experienced heartburn. Milk and Gaviscone do the trick for me.

    Try to avoid acidic things which you probably already know. My friend didn't bless her! She drank coke :rotfl:

    Drinking water and Almax (spanish equivilent to gaviscon and its actually much better ) seems to be the only thing that help me...

    Maybe there is something in that. I ate lots of peppers in a restaurant last night and had no problem when I went to bed! :shock:
