I'm 33 weeks pregnant and started having pretty intense heartburn since a couple weeks ago.  I tried to take tums, but that really messed with my bm and caused bleeding and pain.  I've been drinking a lot of milk and eating ice cream, but they only do so much for it.

Anyone has good tips how they dealt with it during pregnancy?

Thank you!!

You should stay away from regular ice cream with emulsifiers. My GI told me to stay away from emulsifiers, and mentioned “ice cream” in particular as ice creams are loaded with emulsifiers. He told me emulsifiers strip off the protective lining of the digestive tract. There are “natural” ice creams that do not have them, you need to read the ingredient list to make sure.
