LOVE the liquid Maalox / Mylanta - i even keep in fridge for that "instant" cooling effect - also, please make sure to eat small meals - multiple times a day - like 5-6-7 times a day and not eat for at least 4-5 hours before bed... and watch for trigger foods that REALLY aggravate you and avoid them! GOOD LUCK with the pregnancy!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

If you take the Maalox and Nexium and still have pain, you need to see your doctor.
