Try chewing gum, chewing gum helps produce saliva which helps relieve heartburn

Try rennies or gaviscon n try milk. I also find drinkin water with ice cubes in helps a little. I suffer so badly from acid reflux n heartburn have dun even before being pregnant but even worse now n have it everyday.

I   14 weeks and  I suffer from  acid reflux for many years. My doctor  suggested  to take  Ranitidine is an over the counter med for acid reduction. The dosage is low  for me so I take one in the morning with breakfast and the next one I take it for dinner. Tums does not work for me either. Milk helps me when I run out of my meds. Just be alittle more cautious with what you eat that way you can monitor what gives you heartburn. I hope this helps

Actually,  Fresh Grapefruit works the best. It turns your stomach acid into Alkaline. Everyone that has tried this says one Grapefruit relieves the suffering for about 3days at a time.  Personally I eat grapefruit every other day.  It also helps with constipation and preventing excess water retention. Trust me, you're gonna love the way you feel. I guarantee it ♥
