...those darn TUMS!!! I took a few in the very beginning, but have managed to ward off the heartburn with papaya enzymes, milk, and avoidance of certain foods. Not anymore. I have two weeks left and it feels like my esophagus may burn right through my chest...ugh. I guess that means the end is near! Woot!

I've had the worst hearburn of my life ths whole pregnancy. It was like 3rd trimester bad since the beginning and now I am in a whole new world of hurt. I think it was just a good dose of relaxin for me. But I have eaten my way through 4 bottles of tums this pregnancy, and I try not to take them, but nothing works, I can eat a whole bottle of papaya enzymes in one sitting and it won't work. Booo!

I have Tums in my purse, car, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen...
but unfortunately, the kind of heartburn I've been getting, the Tums can touch anymore!!! I've moved on to Gaviscon...
