    Oh it's horrible isn't it, mine is getting worse as the weeks are passing. So far Gaviscon and milk seem to be doing the trick.

    Hope you find some relief soon :hug:

    If it's major hun, and your in 3rd tri then the doc can give you Lansoprazole.

    I got it for mine at the end of my pregnancy!

    Do you have asthma? Coz heartburn can upset your asthma....that's why I got it!

    :hug: :hug: :hug: to you coz it's horrible!

    Guess what.... ?




















    NOTHING WORKS :wall: :wall: :wall: My heartburn has been really really awful the last few days... I actually now wake in the night to drink almax (aka gaviscon) more times that I do to go and pee. Not to mention drinking it during the day.. I go through approximately 225mls of Almax a day. I know this is how much I go through because I actually drink a bottle a day now... :rotfl:

    Its one of the things that I've actually suffered worse from during this pregnancy. And it is so incredibly painful sometimes, that my whole chest and arms feel like they are on fire... I've taken to drinking ice cream milk shakes just to get SOME relief..

    I've got Lansoprazole too but it just doesn't have the cooling effect that the Almax has... sorry... its the heartburn thats really getting to me atm too so I'm just a tad sensitive about it. :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:

    I was getting terrible acid reflux and indigestion too to the point it was keeping me up at night...felt like my insides were being burnt :? I found the best thing for me for to eat something dry and simple like an oat biscuit/cracker or a piece of dry bread. Seems to nuetralise my stomach a bit and make it less painful. I hope you feel better soon though

    during my last bad attack, the ordinary gaviscon and milk werent helping much. I sat myself up in my arm chair (in the middle of the night) with lots and lots of pillows behind so i was bolt upright. it did help ease the pain a little...

    hope you're over it soon, i know how horrible it is :(
