I have really bad acid reflux and its keeping me up. I'm 18wks 6 days pregnant. Is there anything I can take? I go to the doctors on the 17th but I just can't wait that long.

  • You should call the doctor's office. You can find lists of drugs online that are considered safe to take during pregnancy. Antacids or liquid ulcer meds are often given to pregnant women. You could also ask a pharmacist.
