Well, first night on the Prevacid, I woke up at about 1:30 in the morning with some pretty severe heartburn.  It took about twenty minutes (after getting up, taking Tums, because it's all I had, and walking around rubbing my chest) before it settled down enough for me to lay back down.   And that's with me sleeping with my head elevated going in.

Not a great way to start.  Still, I'll see if things improve today/tonight.

Rather tired now.

I had good luck with Prevacid for reflux. Do they have you on the higher dose?

Pregnancy heartburn is a whole new beast, though, especially since I can't take all the "acid blocker" type stuff. I'll take 6 or 8 tums in one sitting sometimes. I find the best soothing measure is to put a glass of milk in the freezer for 10 or 15 minutes, and drink the icy milk really slowly.

Not sure what the dosage is. In fact, I have no idea how many I'm supposed to be taking each day. I've started with one, for now, to see how it goes.

I can't imagine heartburn getting worse than it has been. I don't envy you that. But then I see posts about Olive, the progress in her room, and so on... and I get more than a little jealous. You and Adam are going to make really terrific parents.
