I have now started getting heartburn, and boy is it uncomfortable, not in pain or anything just not comfortable. I mentioned it to my husband last night and he asked if I wanted to get medicine. I said it is bearable, so no.
He happened to mention that the lining of the stomach replaces itself every 4 days and he wondered how the throat handled the stomach acid. Naturally I had to do a little bit of research on the web. Turns out heartburn, with time, can permanently damage your throat.......
So we went and bought some tums. My midwife was saying that tums aren't the best and they leave coating on the placenta.
What do you mamas use that is cheap and effective?
