Anyone got any good tips for managing constant heartburn, indigestion and reflux? I'm taking mylanta double strength but it's not really managing it. Feel like I should stop eating - it's not worth the all day indigestion that follows

I agree. I went on some prescription antacid thing when pregnant. Possibly Zantac but I can't be sure because I'm too lazy to check.

Oh I remember this... *shudders*
When antacids no longer cut it, I alternated between Zantac and Pariet (a week or two with one, then switched). I think they're both Category B.
Definitely beat the nights of trying to gulp down cups of Gaviscon

Ok cool thanks for the advice. I've taken Zantac prior to being pregnant and had googled it but thought it wasn't safe but perhaps it's one of those drugs that falls into the category of 'if you really need it'.
Plus hopefully being the third Tri the risks are a bit less...

Awesome. I happen to have a GP appt tomorrow so hopefully there's light at the end of the tunnel!!
Any tips about foods to avoid? I don't really have a sense of whether something in particular might be setting it off, although I did have my baby shower on Sunday and ate a lot of sugar so perhaps this ramp up is punishment for over indulging on cake.

I had awful reflux for nearly the whole second half of my pregnancy, it got to the point where I was having raw veg & cheese for dinner, and drinking milk & mylanta all day! Even then I'd lay down in bed at night (propped up like they'd told me to) then have to jump up & run to the bathroom to vomit!
Finally an ob suggested ranitidine over the counter at the chemist - revolution! I felt a million times better. I only wish someone had mentioned it to me before 5 days before DD was born, it would have saved me a lot of suffering!
