I've just started with it this week. Good job you're prepared with your tums coz I remember lots of midnight visits to the medicine cabinet last time when I would wake up with major heartburn!

I am having this problem as well. I am going to try the apple cider vinegar remedy and see if that does the trick (2 tsp unpasteurized ACV in 8oz water 3x a day). I ate soo many Tums last pregnancy, and the relief was never lasting. I'll let you know if I have any luck with the ACV.

I starting having heartburn in the second trimester. I have it regardless of what I eat. I have smoothie flavored tums and those seem to do the trick. They taste like smarties, so not terrible. I find myself brushing my teeth everytime I eat- I have to or it makes me sick. So I'm going to have to get tums and a toothbrush and toothpaste just for my purse. Ah, the joys of pregnancy!

I also get bad headaches and backaches. I still get tired really easy too.
