  • The doctor told me yes, and I actually took them a couple times a day for the calcium. Steer clear of fancy stuff though, and check with your nurse line if you aren't sure of what you have.

  • Well yes you can take tums; but they most likely won't work, or won't work very well. During pregnancy, the little flap in the back of your throat relaxes, which is why heartburn and acid are such a problem in pregnant women. You need to speak with your ob as soon as you can, I did and he recommended zantac 75 before a meal; and let me tell you, I no longer had heartburn issues at all!
