    Drinking milk when eating worked for me.

    I slept upright in my last few months of preg with Maddy & drank a big glass of milk just before bed!!!

    I also chewed on Mylanta (or similar) immediately after dinner!!!

    Have you mentioned this to your Doctor? I know that I had awful heartburn when PG with Jacob and my OB prescribed Zantac for it!

    jay-b,
    i too still get heartburn and morning/day/night was just awful, i was eating mylata & gaviscon without any relief. so my GP and my DR put me on Zantac which is available on scrip or over the counter.

    Its relief is amazing it turns off the over production of acid (due to pregnancy and the bub) where as the antacids put a barrier and wear off pretty quickly.
    this is a saft category A medince and i highly recommend it to anyone out there suffering from this YUK!!

    good luck

    I would recommend against using peppermint tea for anything while pregnant, as mint can set off uterine contractions. I'm a huge fan of peppermint tea and had to stop drinking it as soon as I got pregnant because it caused stomach pain, in fact, I can't even eat a mint slice (biscuit) as I'm too sensitive to it!

    I rely on Mylanta, during my first pregnancy I actually had a bottle of it sitting next to the bed.

    Jay-b definitely get the Zantac. It was the only thing that helped me. I couldn't sleep or eat/drink (only water). It was great stuff.

    If it doesn't seem to affect you then I wouldn't be overly concernced - if I followed ALL the "do's" and "don'ts" of pregnancy then I'd be a decaffienated mess I do love my cup of tea in the afternoon.
    If you've been taking it til this stage without noticing any ill effects then I'd hazard a guess you'll continue to be fine with it, just watch the quantities.

    On the other hand, if you run overtime for a week, then you might be very glad of a few strong cups of peppermint tea!!

    I know it's not the same, but chamomile tea is sovereign for everything - really boosts your auto-immune system, apart from the other soothing benefits.

    I have been chewing on quick-ease like it is going out of fashion. I mainly get my heartburn at night. I have tried extra pillows but then my neck gets sore.
    I have told my Dr 1000 times but Zantac was never mentioned!! Grr!
    Ah well.. not long to go!
