Really bad acid reflux at 35 weeks pregnant

Omg I have the worst acid reflux tonight it's 3am been up 1 hour vomiting. Throughout my pregnancy I have been really well but just recently have had the worst reflux. I'm currently 35 +5 pregnant it's my first pregnancy which is extremely exciting. My husband gave me milk to drink just now and I feel a bit better. Does anyone have any ideas how to make it go away or at least sooth the throat??

Drink Gaviscon as it is more effective that chewing other remedies. It is safe to drink in pregnancy and you can get it in mint flavours. It was a life saver in my first pregnancy and also this one. Good luck

Lunagal, I live in Australia, on the Gold Coast, you can get Gaviscon in any pharmacy or chemist. It comes in a few flavours but the mint one is best!!!

Drink 1/4 tsp baking soda mixed in 1/4 cup water. Works for me right away :)

I'm in aus and throughout the day I chew on the chewy quickeze..you can get different flavours (orange is the best) and I relieves it instantly..then of a night time I take the liquid mylanta. I swear by the chewy quickeze and I have told all my pregnant friends about them and they thank me all the time for it! Reflux is the worst but mine has FINALLY gone (fingers crossed) as bub has dropped and not putting as much pressure on my top half :)

Tums and Zantac is what was ok for me. Doctor approved.
