Heartburn remedies?

Yikes. 9weeks and I have some heartburn (and nausea)! No telling when it will strike-- afternoon or evening. I am taking Tums, and I know I can have Mylanta or Maalox, according to my doc. Does anyone else have any home remedies to help with this? I was afraid to lay down last night...until I threw up and felt better...It's mostly the heartburn, really, because I do have Bnatals and Preggie Pops for the nausea.

I never had nausea, so this may not be good advice on that end, but drinking milk helps with the heart burn. During my first pregnancy, I remember having dinner at a friend's home; I got terrible heart burn even though there were no obvious "problem" foods. I think it was because I did not drink milk with dinner like I usually do.

This is my second pregnancy, but during my first pregnancy I had horrible, horrible, heartburn the whole time. My heartburn didn't start until around 15 weeks, but I was miserable with it. I couldn't sleep, and I hated to eat because I knew it would hurt afterwards. I actually had pain with the heartburn. So, I tried all the home remedies and my doctor said for me to use Zantac 75. It was amazing. I used it most of my first pegnancy and it worked great!!

I have severe acid reflux when I'm not pregnant and it gets even worse when I am. I take Zantac 150 twice a day to keep it under control. It's the only thing that works. Even milk gives me reflux!!
