Heartburn During Pregnancy

This was my favorite thing about pregnancy........just kidding! I think I went through about 2-3 bottles of children's chewable Tums during my pregnancy. Tums worked the best for me and are safe to use while pregnant.
During the time, I was told, "You know, if you have a lot of heartburn during pregnancy, your child will be born with a lot of hair. It's a fact" Well, ladies, I had heartburn and plenty of it, but my son was born bald and he is JUST NOW starting to get some hair! Lol...I love those old wives tales, don't you?

What safe heartburn remedy did you find helpful?

Those kind are the best, which is why we chose the kids' one because they were all cherry. Lol

    My boss and I were actually just talking about this. If you have heartburn take a spoonful of baking soda and swallow with water. You will feel a fizzle and then BURP! He says it takes the heartburn right away! Wish I would have known this because I had tons of tums bottles with me when I was prego.

    That doesn't sound too pleasant but it's worth a try.

          In my last pregnancy friends told me barley greens (maybe that was for my low iron though) and probiotics could help with heartburn but I don't remember why.

          Eating smaller meals throughout the day, not laying down after eating were a couple other solutions.

          I know I had to stay away from acidic and spicy foods, which are my favorites.
