safe heartburn remedies?

I was diagnosed with acid reflux years ago so I have been on medication for heartburn for quite a while. when I found out I was pregnant the doctor took me off of my medication so the heartburn is back ten times worse due to being pregnant. the doctor told me I can take Tums or Rolaids or Maalox and none of it seems to work, I'm popping Tums and Rolaids every 5 minutes its horrible does anybody have any solutions? I've cut out pop, chocolate and all the other things they recommend and it's still not helping.

I had heartburn REALLY bad when I was s pregnant with my daughter and drink milk really helped me. Don't drink or eat acidic things.

Tums are really safe for heartburn during your pregnancy, I usually take them dont need them alot but there the safe ones for pregnancy since other brands might contain penicillin.
