Heartburn Relief :)

Hi Mummys, I'm 32wks today.. I've had heartburn throughout my entire pregnancy and at the begining was prescribed Zantac as I couldn't take my normal Nexium tablets. I started seeing another doctor who took me off the tablets which upset me because they worked so well, he advised I take things like Quick-Eze or Mylanta, so I tried both. Lately I've been taking Quick-Eze, probably about a packet a day to help and they've done wonders but since I hit 30weeks, I've had the worst heartburn I've ever had. It almost feels like a rock is in my chest and throat making it quite painful and the Quick-Eze seem to give little relief now. Is there anything else I can try to help soothe it? I feel like I'm going to be sick constantly and my throat feels raw. I think the worst is the upper chest pains waking me up at night.. I have an appointment in four days but wanted to see if anyone had ideas on relief until then, any help is appreciated x
