    I take Rennies as they're just like a chalky mint. I've also taken Gaviscon when I got it at work and hadn't got any Rennies. Luckily for me there was another pregnant lady!! Gaviscon is really fast acting, but it was gross. It said take 2-4 spoons and I only managed 2. I've also drank milk at night if I haven't had anything to hand.

    Milk Ice cream rennies and rennies come in diff flavours and sugar free if u don't like original. The gaviscon is safe but tastes rank to me x

    Ive been having nothing but indigestion and heartburn from the start so I sympathise with u completely :( its been the main bug bear of my pregnancy and even wakes me up at night. I take rennies and gaviscon and I have to take them everywhere I go :( drink milky drinks, eat small meals regularly and I stay away from anything acidic apart from that theres nothing else can be done x

    Really sympathise :( heartburn and indigestion is a bugger! I had the doctor prescribe me tablets in the end as the likes of gaviscon didn't help after a while x

    A glass of milk usually helps for me otherwise I have to sleep sitting up propped up with loads of pillows to ease it. Don't think I could stomach the Gaviscon lol xx

    Gaviscon for me, I got a huge bottle on prescription from the doctors and a couple of spoon fulls is normally enough to knock it on the head but I agree it is gross.
