I would call them in the morning. They should be able to just call you in a prescription. Hopefully that gives you some relief!

I tried every single one of these things listed (besides yogurt, and orange Juice is a horrible idea, it makes it worse) with no relief. Every night and all day acid in my mouth burning like being punched in the chest. The apple cider vinegar ironically DOES help. But the only thing I found got rid of heartburn and kept it away? Jello. Strawberry jello. 1 jello cup a day kept the heartburn away. And thanks to many extra ultrasounds I know my baby has TONS of hair. Go figure

What is important to remember here is that all of us are different! What works for one may not work for another! Also, the way baby is sitting is a large contributor to heart burn, so it's not always what you eat or ate that brings it on or relieves it. That being said, things I would suggest avoiding to prevent as much heart burn as possible... anything high in sugar, even natural sugars, anything high is acidity, orange juice I would say is a bad idea, and anything spicy. Things that work to cure heart burn for me, tums, they are totally safe for baby and you can eat as many as you feel neccesary. Chugging a glass of milk, if you can drink lots at once it seems to help more quickly, try one small glass and repeat if neccassay, and if your tummy can handle it. Sitting up or being in an upright position, when you lay down or even recline the acid has an easier time escaping your tummy. If you choose yogurt, use plain unsweetened. I would also avoid getting a perscription for heart burn, I know its uncomfortable and often times pretty constant, but the less man made pills the better for baby and you! Good luck!
