    Has anyone got anything they do that gets rid of heartburn?? I think I've tried everything but alot of the over the counter stuff makes me gip but I've tried milk milkshakes mints ect which work for like 5 secs :( I had it bad at start then it faded but when I reached 28 weeks it's back and iam at 31 weeks now so still got a while yet and its worse then ever and it's keeping me up most of the night is there any thing else I could try open to try anything lol

    my dr gave me ranitidine and that helped but stopped after about 2 weeks, so they put me on omeprazole and that works perfectly. x

    yeah go see your doctor about it, u cant just buy it off the shelf. but its safe to use during pregnancy and really does help. I was almost in tears with pain, couldn't sleep, couldn't eat, couldn't move without it coming up, had really bad reflux too and its all pretty much gone now. I feel a bit burpy sometimes but id much rather that than the acid and heartburn! x

    oh god its so bad. I can honestly say its the worst thing about being pregnant. It made me hate every minute of it, and was ruining my pregnancy. now I feel totally different, its amazing how much it can affect u. I couldn't drink tea, or any hot drink, hot food also set it off. butter brought it on, crisps and chocolate were an absolute no no, fruit made it worse, fruit juice - wow don't even go there. torture, actual torture!!!!! get to the drs and get some magic tablets :) x

    Using Gaviscon advance at the moment (my new best friend). You can buy ranitadine over the counter but only in 25mg tabs and normal dose is 75mg twice a day. Omeprazole will be a GP prescription.
