I’ll never forget the first time I experienced heartburn. I was 16 weeks pregnant with my first, and I was on my way to work. All of the sudden, without warning, I had a painful burning sensation in my chest. Painful and immediate. I literally had no idea what was happening to me.
Panicked, I pulled over and called my mom. After describing the symptoms, she calmly told me I had heartburn. I cried. (Doesn’t everything make you cry when you are pregnant?)
Then I drove to the first drugstore, grabbed the biggest bottle of Tums on the shelf and ate two before I even made it to the register. Sweet relief.
That was the first time, but it wasn’t the last. For the next 23 weeks heartburn and Tums were a daily part of my life. And they would be again when became pregnant with my second. Ahhhh the joys of pregnancy.
During my pregnancies, I went through bottles of Tums – bottles. And I always kept a small roll handy in my purse, in the car, everywhere.
While the daily pain is gone (thank goodness), pregnancy has a way of changing things and from time to time I still experience that all-to-familiar burn. So Tums continues to be a stable in my medicine cabinet. Although I no longer have to keep mini rolls tucked into my purse at all times, they are good to have in the car — just in case.
Free Eight-Count Roll Of Tums
Tums wants to make sure you always have a small roll on hand when you need it most, so for a limited time you can get a TUMS Free Roll when you buy specially-marked packages of Tums at Walmart. If you suffer from heartburn, stock up on Tums at Walmart so you will always have Tums on hand when that burn starts.
