mom to sam arlo (5), olive loretta (3)....and twin girls Annie and Ramona Jean, born 3/10.
I'm a big fan of generic Zantac. My first pregnancy I took nothing but baking soda and Gaviscon. Papaya enzyme did absolutely nothing for me. I spent the last month of my pregnancy throwing up 2-3x per day from the heartburn. There were days I could barely speak. I have no clue why I never said anything to my doctor, or bothered to take anything else.
With this pregnancy and the last I started on the generic Zantac as soon as the baking soda stopped working. Once I need two Zantac and a baking soda chaser I go to the Prilosec. I only needed it for about 3 weeks my last pregnancy. I went to the Prilosec the other day and so far I've only needed one about every other day.
i've been getting heart burn off and on all pregnancy. i'm a huge fruit lover, there was no way i was cutting that out. but i did stop eating a lot of tomato based foods and that really seemed to help. juice is bad too, especially apple, and i find that soups can be a trigger (basically lots of liquids that are somewhat acidic). anyway, tums is usually enough, but i find soymilk is a really nice remedy too, if you don't drink milk.
I find that I'm better if I avoid baked goods and chocolate.
Milk is my saving grace. It really helps to put out the fire, for me at least.
