I'm and 22 weeks now and FTM. I started to had heartburn just with certain food like rice. I stopped eating rice and I dont have anymore more heartburn. The only thing I took to help was Tums.

I use shots of apple cider  vinegar.  Helps speed up digestion. Otherwise,  the heartburn is awful.

I use baking soda in warm water. It got me off prescription antacids. I use one fourth to one half teaspoon before bed in cup of warm water. Never use on full stomach. It gives instant relief and gets lots of gas up too. You can google it for more info. I have been using it every night for a year and a half. Good luck!

There are over the counter meds that are safe. Zantac in Canada (Rantididine sp.?) I think is the drug name.
