I've had nasty heartburn with all of my pregnancies. 2 baldies and 2 with long thick hair. Who knows?
I have a milk allergy and cant drink milk unfortunetly.

Re: ohhh the burn!!! (heart burn that is)

Milk or yogurt at bedtime kept me from waking up with heartburn. Sometimes even cheese. If you can't have dairy, I'd try rice milk or something like that.

With my first pregnancy, my daughter was riding really high. I went to a chiropractor who did the Webster technique, which allowed her to ride a little lower. That helped the heartburn, among other things.

Re: ohhh the burn!!! (heart burn that is)

Milk is my biggest cause of heartburn. In fact, my midwife said that most women can't tolerate dairy very well when pregnant, something to do with the way the stomach sits during pregnancy and how it reacts with the stomach acid. If I have any dairy at all I am guaranteed heartburn all night long. I take a calcium/magnesium supplement drink, sip water every few minutes and eat something really bland like rice, toast or crackers and it usually helps.

Re: ohhh the burn!!! (heart burn that is)

I also agree with baby's position causing a lot of it. Babies that are high will cause a lot more heartburn issues than when they are below the pubic bone. If that's your case, chiropractors can do a world of good, look for one who is trained in the webster technique.

Oh, and talk to your OB/midwife about OTC meds. A lot are safe. I called my midwife and listed all the ones we had around the house that day (we had a sick dog at the time who was trying every antacid known to man) and I think she told me Zantac. I also found that I needed a snack with/after my vitamins.

I do see My chiro once a month. He has tried to help me but the baby is just in a position that puts pressure. He was able to straighten my pelvis some last time.

I take the generic pepcid, famotadine. They make a prescription form, which works great, too.
