I am only 6 weeks pregnant but I have already had heartburn/acid reflux twice. It happens in the middle of the night when I get up to pee. I have been drinking some Mylanta to stop it but I hate using it so early in my pregnancy.

Any and all suggestions welcome!

I second the papaya enzyme remedy. I usually take it right after I eat and it really seems to help with digestion. Although it also helps when I get a sudden attack such as you do in the middle of the night. Good luck!

Papaya here, too. I get mine at my local co-op, but probably any health food store should stock it.

Hi, just wanted to mention that the nurse at my prenatal clinic--who is very open to natural remedies and very well versed in the literature--said that there have been some studies linking papaya to early pg loss. I don't have the refs, sorry!
