ok the heartburn really needs to stop!!!!
i tried zantac but i just throw it up. i cant stand tums, they make me sick... i love rolaids though, but i heard few people say that theyre not that safe during pregnancy, i get enough calcium from my vits and such so im not concerned about not getting enough....
did any of your ladie's docs said NOT to take rolaids???

Rolaids are on the list of no - no's I got from the dr at the beginning of my pregnancy.

Get some papaya enzymes. They come in chewable pills. They are all natural and work great for heartburn. You can take as many as you need and they won't do anything to you except get rid of heartburn.

rolaids contain aluminum in them and thats why they are considered unsafe during pregnancy. I would stick to tums

ok i just read what to expect when ur expecting and it says tums n rolaids are alright... some natural rememdies are tablespoon of honey in warm milk, a handful of almonds or fresh or dried papaya... and u can chew sugarless gum for 30 mins after eating to bring on saliva that can neautrilize stomach acid
