    Do you have a recliner? Sleep in that or if you don't you'll have to create a pillow mountain in your bed lol, an incline should help along with the medication. Good luck, it's the home stretch!
  • The only thing that has worked for me has been Prilosec and also Pepcid complete when it's really bad. I've also cut out spicy foods and orange juice/lemonade. Make sure to talk to your doctor before you take either of those. I take 1 Prilosec a day and I haven't had any heartburn, it is so freeing not having to deal with it. Good luck! I had the worst heartburn throughout pregnancy, I got heartburn when I drank water! I wish I had started taking it earlier and didn't "tough through it" hope this helps :)

    If your looking for something more natural I drink a big glass of milk when it gets really bad and it tides me over.
  • I agree with everything everyone else said but also make sure you sit upright for at least an hour after eating or drinking anything. I find that if I don't it really starts up fast and lasts forever.

    I spent the weekend at the lakehouse and cried in the middle of the night because I didn't have my pillow mountain. Sitting up is key. And tums. Pillows and tum has summed up the last few weeks of my pregnancy.
  • I finally found that Mylanta works wonders!!
  • Good ideas. I have awful heartburn too! This kid better have a ton of hair if that wives tale is true!
  • My daughter came out with a wig on. Tons of hair
  • Pickle juice is a great heartburn cure! I have to drink that and milk throughout the day to help with mine. Also put a tablespoon or baking soda in a glass of water and drink it. It works wonders to neutralize the burn.
  • Thank you ladies ,gonna try these today
