    Gaviscon (tastes gross) but that really does work for me, or theres any type of rennie they got fruit, mint or chewy ones (my fave) if u can find em. Avoid anything citrousy, lemons, oranges and even tomatoes :( i love tomatoes lol, see if that helps rpevent it in future :) hope your well xx

    Gaviscon is the only thing that works for me! The doctors might be able to prescribe something stronger if you need it. I've also been told to avoid anything spicy or too rich, and not lay down after eating for a few hours. The more upright you sit the better, apparently. Poor you, heartburn sucks!! :( xx

    I have been suffering from horrible heartburn since my second tri began. I had been eating tums like they were candy until someone suggested almonds. Just plain, unsalted almonds. It has totally helped me. I eat a handful before I eat food that I know sends me into heartburn hell and a handful after! Maybe it will help you too!! Good Luck!!

    Oh I'm there too. I get heartburn from EVERYTHING it seems. Milk is the only thing that has helped. Meds havent touched it at all.

    I am there with you girl:). I couldn't take the heartburn anymore the other day and had tums first which help for about 2 hours bu then had to take pep acid and it finally calm down. Doctor said I could take it so it will become my best friend at the moment:).

    It's awful I'm living on a combination of gaviscon when I'm at home and Rennie when I'm at work... However I have recently found that some types of ice cream (Ben and Jerry's Phish food works best for me although that may be psychological) can keep things at bay for an hour or so!

    Gaviscon does do the work for me but not all the time. Thanks for the almond suggestion. Will try it.
