I had really bad heartburn during my pregnancy as well and most of mine was at night. My husband would go get me a snowcone every night and it was the only thing that eased my heartburn. It really worked. Also, you can eat a spoonful of honey at night or when you feel the heartburn coming on. I didn't use honey during pregnancy, but I use it now. I have heard it is unsafe to feed young children honey so I would check with a doctor before taking it for heartburn now.
