I've read on here about using Zantac and then Pepcid for others. Does these 2 basically do the same thing? Is one better than the other?

They are both H2 antagonists which block stomach acid production. My OB prefers the Zantac because it has been around longer and has been more well studied in pg women. I take 75 mg twice a day, occasionally taking 150 mg at night if I feel really acidic after supper. One thing that also helps me is Gas-X. I find that if I get a lot of gas in my stomach I will feel sicker, so I take that twice a day too.
