I live on the extra strength tums....the calcium is good for the baby.....and milk helps

My dr. recommended Mylanta.  She says tums is ok but by the last trimester my heartburn was so severe that she said Mylanta will coat my stomach more.  It did help a little bit more.  If I were you though, I would stay away from the barbeque sauce.

Like Brown Eyed Gurl - Milk helped me as well.  I would eat a bowl of cereal and it would go away for a little while.

I used TUMS and although it didn't totally alleviate it, it made it bearable....
