I always get it bad and I just deal with it. I usually don't take anything because tums are gross and don't work anyway. So I suck it up and deal with it. Usually it gets so bad around 7 months I have to figure out a way to sleep sitting up.

i dont have it yet, but i do get it. i try eating small meals and when it was really bad i took i think mylanta.... or maybe it was that other one. i cant remember, it wasnt super tasty bad it worked really good. also i would try sleeping proped up a bit if you can. i think there are certain foods you can try and avoid... but i dont remember which ones. most of the time i got acid reflux and it especially was horrible when i would bend down to pick anything up. i think the best solution is eating small meals.

I only use Tums too right now. It usually doesn't cut it, unless I watch what I eat too. If I stay away from pasta sauce, spicy stuff, garlic and coffee I'm better. Sometimes toast and milk help if it's the last thing I have in the evening. But so days it's like nothing helps.

Doesn't the old wives tale say that means the baby is gonna have a full head of hair?

I find I can't have anything acidic, or anything with caffeine, including chocolate , or it only makes it worse (cutting those things out doesn't totally take it away for me though.) I had to pay very close attention to see what foods/drinks were triggering it for me. Tums works for awhile, but in my last pregnancy I got a prescription for Zantac, and that did wonders!

tums, and seriously...vanilla ice cream. chocolate ice cream is my fav but it aggravates heartburn a little bit.

Tums. I find having them just before I eat helps the best.

I had it so bad when I was pregnant with Ben that it burned my vocal cords and for the last few months of my pregnancy I barely had a voice left. It took a few months after giving birth for my voice to come back and even now almost 2 years later I sound different than I did before.

I finally had to take some prescription that I think was class C (it can cause jaundice in newborns and did in my son). I had to take it though because they were afraid that it was going to cause very serious permanent damage.

Prilosec OTC? Holden had BAD BAD acid reflux (aka heartburn) and out of every medication we tried, that was the only one that helped (well, not OTC, but prescription kind).

I've heard milk helps to level out the acidity too

I had this so bad at the end of my pregnancy with Olivia. It didn't matter what I ate or what I did. I popped tums like candy but it didn't really go away until she was born. I am not looking forward to that again.

But then NOah, i had heartburn, nothing all that bad, but he had TONS of hair. you could part it and comb it to the side. LOL

Watching what you eat can reduce the Heart burn.. I swear it works! I had horrible heart burn in the middle of my second trimester.. Then I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes and I went on a low carb diet and my heart burn disappeared and I never experinced it again..

Adriana was also born with LOTS of hair, more then normal.. So much hair that she didn't look like a newborn when her hospital pictures were taken.. Just look at Adriana's ticker in my sig.. That picture was taken when she was 2 months old.. That gives you an idea on how much hair she had..
