I'm 6 months pregnant and absolutely EVERYTHING gives me indegestion/heart burn. I take antacids for it and they tame it sometimes. Is there anything that anyone can recommend for this problem? I have a appointment with the ob this coming week and will find out from him a perscription that will be safe to take with the baby but I would rather stay away from perscriptions. Please help anyone!!!
