OUCH! WHAT TO DO FOR PREGNANCY HEARTBURN

Indigestion and Heartburn in Pregnancy

I only experienced one episode of so called "heartburn" in pregnancy and it really did feel like my heart was burning. I really wanted to take something but I was too afraid to take any type of medication when I was pregnant.

 I did try taking a little bit of "Tums" since these are made from calcium carbonate and I heard that they were safe to take in pregnancy.  This article has some suggestions:

Here are some guidelines to help you understand which heartburn medicines are appropriate to use during pregnancy. (As with any medication, get the okay from your healthcare provider first.)

Your first line of defense should probably be chewable antacids made from calcium carbonate (sometimes just called "calcium" on the label). Fast, portable, and effective, they may be all you

need. Some of them even taste pretty good.

Antacids containing magnesium hydroxide or magnesium oxide are also a good choice during pregnancy. These come in tablet or liquid form.

Bear in mind that swallowing any liquid, even the liquid you need to wash down a tablet, will cause your stomach to do what it does naturally: produce digestive juices – including acid, the very thing you're trying to reduce. So it's best to swallow tablets with as little liquid as possible when you're having trouble with heartburn.

All of these antacid medicines work by neutralizing the acid that's already in your stomach and causing you pain. Chewable and liquid antacids act much more quickly than tablets because they're already dissolved. You can experiment to see which type works most effectively for you.

Avoid antacids that list aluminum (such as aluminum hydroxide or aluminum carbonate) as an ingredient. Aluminum can be constipating and, in large doses, toxic. So even though these products are probably safe when used occasionally at the recommended dosage, they're not your best choice when pregnant.

Remedies containing aspirin (such as Alka-Seltzer) should also be avoided during pregnancy. Aspirin may be listed on a label as salicylate or acetylsalicylic acid.

Also steer clear of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), which is sold as an antacid in tablet form, and sodium citrate. Both are high in sodium, which causes water retention. And if you're far enough along in your pregnancy to have gone into a panic trying to remove rings from your swollen fingers or looked down in horror at a pair of puffy ankles, you'll understand why that's the last thing you want right now.
