Heartburn :(

Have anyone been dealing with heartburn. I have been lately and it's no fun!! What are some tips to ease the ugly heartburn monster?

    Peppermint and ginger tea I think help some people. Do you know if Zantac is pregnancy safe? That's what I always use and it works great.

        I use Pepcid AC, the tablets seem to work better than the chewables. My doc told me I could take an over the counter daily medication (i.e. nexium, Prevacid) as well if I wanted to. I also sleep propped up a little since the other night I woke up nearly choking on acid... for me as soon as the morning sickness stop around 24 weeks, the heartburn takes over... I also chew Spearmint Trident if I have already taken my antacid or if I am trying to manage it without.

          I think tums are ok during pregnancy and I discovered Gutsy (cannot remember if they are safe during pregnancy).

            My midwife said that tums were ok to take for my pregnancy.
            Also, you could try cutting out some gassy food from your diet.

              Thanks all for the suggestions! I've been taking TUMS and they seem to be helping me, so I'm thankful about that!
