the only thing that worked for me was apple cider vinegar - a tablespoon straight with a glass of water for a chaser. Other people mix the water and vinegar and drink that, but i just wanted to get the taste over with. The idea is you trick your body into thinking there is plenty of acidic stuff in your system, and it doesn't need to produce any more.
Papaya tablets worked for a while, but started to lose effectiveness on me toward the end of my pregnancy.
good luck! heartburn sucks. and i've been sad to learn that though it has vastly improved postpartum, it has not disappeared entirely (I had never had it before being pregnant, and was eager to return to that state!)
