About one-half of all pregnant women develop heartburn, especially during their second and third trimester. Pregnant women should avoid the foods listed above and utilize the home remedies described above except for the OTC medications. They should discuss with their doctor what OTC's, if any, they should take. Although OTC's are generally safe for the fetus and mother, their use should be determined by the person's OB/GYN.
