I am only 6 weeks pregnant and I have the worst heartburn ever! I have had heartburn daily for years now and its nothing new. When i found out I was pregnant a couple weeks ago, i stopped taking my daily prescription pill. I have since had the problem of really bad heartburn every night, I can't sleep and drink pepto like its water! It's not helping! I did my own research and the pills i was on it says to ask a dr about taking it while pregnant. He said he'd rather me not take it everyday but if i absolutley have to then do it, well this medicine takes a day or two to kick in so I still have not slept for nearly a week! I have a two year old who doesn't let me sleep in so I can't catch up on sleep that way. I am asking anyone who knows, what medicine can i take in my first trimester for my terrible heartburn? Other than tums, pepto, or maalox! i can't stand to chew tums, taste pepto or maalox! So I need an alternative!! PLEASE HELP!!! I WANT TO SLEEP!

When I was preggo, I experienced 'heart attack' pains. NOPE, heartburn! A week later the prevaid was working and I survived the rest of the pregnancy. Mine came on at 14 weeks though. I was doing tums in the really bad times as an extra beyond the prevacid. - My guess though is that it's a boy. ( Everyone I know with heartburn has had a boy, including me!) -- Good Luck! Hope you feel better soon!
