I have had heartburn all day everyday the ENTIRE pregnancy so far. You can take heartburn medicine

I have awful heartburn and acid reflux. I usually take some tums with a little bit of milk and make sure I sit up afterwards. I have severe nausea too and the heartburn always makes me get sick again. It's common in pregnancy... but I know how bad it *****!

Its common in pregnancy to have heartburns. I just got home from my drs appt and he prescribe me Nexium they really work you drink them in the morning and all day you can eat what ever you want without any problems. Or just eat healthy foods, no greasy foods, no tomatoes, no spicy. Drink alot of water and tiny meals.
