I am having terrible heartburn/indigestion/acid reflux! There is a constant burn in my throat, and u am burping constantly just to get the painful gas out of stomach....ugh... it lasts all day and i have to go to sleep sitting up. I only had it this bad when i was in the last few weeks of pregnancy with ds.... i see the dr on thursday and will pass on any suggestions she gives me, but does an one know of any safe remedies? Im trying to drink milk but its not helping.

Heart burn is my worst pregnancy symptom. Papaya works really well if it is mild to medium. You can get the enzyme papain in capsule form as well, which is what makes papaya good for heartburn. Any kind of remedy that involves liquid- like milk, or baking soda and water etc, make me throw up almost instantly, and it is all burning acid that I throw up. During the last trimester with my daughter, I took zantac, prescribed by my midwife, because it was so bad that it was interfering with my normal life.

Thank You, Pattyandthemoos, for my beautiful siggy!

I take an OTC version of prilosec every day. I have been taking them for years. My OB said it was fine as long as I take a magnesium supplement with it because it can deplete your magnesium levels.

I'm on prescription Pepsid. I only get this when pregnant. SUCKS! I would go and get something OTC. Call your doc and ask what's safe, and be sure to explain how bad it is. They will tell you TUMS and all the other things that don't work right off. =P

Try sipping water all day till you can get something. Eat fruit alone, that helps. If you are mixing it with things like meat it can be worse. Milk tastes so good to me right now, but it makes me burp worse. Lay off anything caffeinated including chocolate.

I've started getting it in the evening after dinner. It's not unbearable yet. But I'll have to look for a natural remedy or a safe pill soon I think.

I had it really bad for most of my last pregnancy. It is only mild so far. I eventually went on Zantac because Tums was not cutting it.

Are you puking a lot? I noticed I get heartburn and acid build up in my throat when my ms is kicking in. The zofran helped with that.
You can try tums? I threw them up too much so I can't eat them, but a few times they helped!
I recommend staying away from acids. Fruit juice was killing me for a while.
Excuse me if my typing is bad There's probably a baby in my arms.
