I have had it really bad, especially at night. I finally found an over the counter one that has worked better than the rest... Prilosec. It's a one a day, I take it after dinner, and I've only been on it 5 days and no more waking up in the middled of the night! It lasts all day too. Finally, relief! Hope it helps!

Gaviscon is perfectly safe during pregnancy - I'm not sure where you live but if you're in the UK you can get a great big bottle free if you go through your GP. Other than that, avoiding spicy and sugary foods may help, as can propping yourself up in bed at night so gravity helps to keep the acid down. Or ask your GP for something else? Be really careful when buying over-the-counter remedies, as the majority aren't suitable for pregnant women. I really sympathise with you hun, as I know how bad it can hurt! I know it won't help much, but the minute the baby is born the heartburn should stop, so not long now, eh? Good luck x

I always ate pineapple and this helped prevent the heartburn with my first two. Have 1 or two slices of fresh pineapple after you eat (the canned kind doesnt work because of the preservatives) also, once you get it, peppermint and ginger help well to rid of heartburn. Peppermint is usually easier to do, because since they stopped making ginger snaps with real ginger, the only way to get it is in a root and to boil it with tea.

I'm in my 3rd trimester and have had severe hard burn since I was 4 months. My doctor recommed gavison and rolaids. Both work. If you don't want to take anything for it try elevating your bed so that gravity helps. Also watch what you eat, spicy and acidic foods due me in big time.
