I'd like to talk about this because not only am I suffering with heartburn this pregnancy I found a way that helps without feeling bad eating a whole bottle of tums...lol
With my other 2 pregnancies I had heartburn too and omg I remember eating ice and popping those tums. I was drinking so much cold water and nothing was working.
This time around I'm pregnant with my third child and omg this heartburn I believe is to be the worst. I cant sleep and boy do I get cranky ...lol So one day I had such a horrible heartburn and I was on my way to meet my mom to go shopping and I found a piece of gum. I remember reading up on heartburn during pregnancy and it said to chew gum because it helps with your saliva basically pushing the stomach acid back down. Well I had a Trident peppermint gum and OMG guys it helped sooooooo much. The peppermint cool my whole throat and I felt a relief. I don't like taking medication I try to rock out any kind of pain before I take a pill for it. So eating tums even though its not crazy bad but I still felt guilty and also u have a limit on how many u can eat lol..so the fact that the gum helped tremendously I was super happy and I ALWAYS carry gum on me now...lol I will have to go to the dentist after I give birth but who cares I didn't want to risk anything affecting my baby. So try it out and see if it works and also try peppermints too anything minty will help. GoodLuck!!!
