I am incredibly blessed to have a pretty strong constitution. And with a few exceptions I suffer from little. However, when I am pregnant I do tend to deal with heartburn (show scene of me, belly bulging, making a sour face to indicate the obvious reflux going on in my esophagus). Yuck! The first couple of kids I had saw me trying to gag down Tums, (picture me, hair frizzed out with my bathroom counter a complete mess of bottles, opening up and spilling out literally 10 Tums into my open hand) and then wait for them to work. Then I was told about a wonder-working miracle pill (insert theme music, and show montage of me playing with my children, happily cooking dinner, and lying down for sleep with a smile on my lips).
Unlike other over-the-counter medications it works two ways: first by creating a barrier which protects your esophageal opening from contact with stomach acids; and second by neutralizing your stomach acid to lower the pH (I am now standing in my clean bathroom, immaculately clad in a darling maternity outfit, easily taking just 2 Gaviscon from the bottle). So the next time you experience the occasional discomfort of heartburn associated with pregnancy, or that extra spicy tamale reach for Gaviscon, and get instant relief!
