|There is a breathing exercise that the childbirth instructor taught me when I was pregnancy with my DD. I'll try to describe it without the visuals.
You sit up (legs crossed) with your arms relaxed and your hands in your lap.Try to sit up as straight as possible with your shoulders back. While breathing deeply in through your nose slowly lift your arms up straight out and up until your hand met and are straight up. (almost like you are flapping wings). When you have your arms straight up lightly stretch up a little and then slowly exhale out through your mouth and bringing your arms back down in the reverse. Repeat this until the heartburn eases.
I had really bad heartburn at night with my DD, I carried her really high (almost under my ribs) until at least 38 weeks. She was pressing on my diaphram so much it really made it difficult at night. I would wake up and sit up and do the exercises right there in bed. I felt like a fool about to take flight off the bed sometimes but it really did help. I honestly don't think I had to do it more than 15 or 20 times before it would ease.
