Tums is calcium carbonate and is actually good for you because it gives you calcium. Not taking meds is not always the best thing to do. You need to be healthy. Acid can cause damage all the way up to the back of your throat. You could choke on it and get pneumonia or worse.
Once you have the baby of course you will want to breastfeed since you are concerned about the baby's health. It is recommended all babies be breastfed at least 2 years. You can take almost all medications while breastfeeding. The risk of any tiny amout of drug in the milk is smaller than the risk of formula. Formula causes illness and death (UNICEF) and has lifelong health implications. 1.3 million babies a year die because they aren't breastfed (UNICEF).
