  • When was it prescribed to you? If it was during your pregnancy your fine, if it was before then call your ob/gyn office and ask the call nurse or labor and delivery can tell you.

  • it was before pregnancy, since i've suffered from a lot f heartburn and pregnancy isn't helping much. it seems like i've had a very healthy pregnancy up until now, and im out of zantac right now

  • You have heartburn b/c your baby is pushing up against things, your acid is forced into your esophogus sometimes.

  • you could try mommy's bliss pills. they have them at babies r us & they have a few different kinds. one is specifically for heartburn. i took the ones for morning sickness & what a relief they were so i imagine the heartburn ones would probably help you. they are made for pregnant women so they are safe to take too.
