Before taking any medication you'll probably want to call your doctor.

I had really bad heartburn at the end of my pregnancy with DS. The only thing that helped me was a cold glass of milk and sitting up for a while after that.

Zantac is my best friend during pregnancy. I take 150 mg every day. My heartburn gets so bad I wake up in the middle of the night feeling like I have to throw up. Zantac is awesome.

I would double check with your dr on the nexium just to be safe. But a couple of remedies are apple cider vinegar and buttermilk. You can take a shot of one or the other everyday and it will aid in controlling the heartburn, if you can stomach either being pregnant. :) Sorry you have heartburn so bad. I had it like that with DD, but the apple cider really helped!

One doctor told me tums and zantac were okay to take, as well as Gaviscon. He said his wife lived on it for both of her pregnancies.
