Yes I do and it's only getting worse I am 30 weeks and I'm eating tums like its candy.  What did seem to help the past two nights is not eating to late and if I did I snacked on some fruit.

My doctor gave the okay for me to take zantac two times a day and to eat as many tums as I want. It helps, check with your doc if zantac is okay for you too. I can't go without it.
