    Im in 3rd tri. Im 34 weeks. Had heartburn since the very beginning. Gaviscon helps. Ask your MW to prescribe it.

    I know i hate it but its better than having the heartburn and trust me the heartburn gets really bad. I wake up at all times of the night with it.

    i've had this as well isn't it vile?! not so bad at the moment it was worse up until about a week ago. not really sure what to suggest though as i haven't really tried anything except whingeing about it :) i found that sipping cold drinks, or cooled boiled water, helps a bit?

    I had it with my first pregnancy and it was all the way thru till she was born. Bloomin awful I gotta tell ya, I hated it! I was drinking pints and pints of milk every day just to get rid of it. I found the only way I could sleep was sitting up so my head was higher than my stomach otherwise the acid reflux was just bleurgh!

    I get awful heartburn too, its not nice!! I went to the doctor in the end and they prescribed me with Omeprazole, it stops the stomach producing acid and works really well if I take it just as I am getting up. It does tend to wear off in the early evening so I have gaviscon advance for then. It has made such a difference to me, I would definitely recommend going to your dr for some help, there's no point suffering and its safe to take during pregnancy!

    I didnt find anything to help ease it to be honest and I do get it normally but it got so much worse this pregnancy! Hope this helps x

    I had really bad heartburn and it seems that after awhile Tums, milk or anything supposed to help stops working after awhile. I started getting a craving for apples and noticed one day that after I ate an apple the hearburn stopped. It seems to do the trick for me...hope you get some relief.
