Q: Is it ok to take Extra Strength Tums or Rolaids during pregnancy? Or do they have to be regular strength?
A: Tums and Rolaids should be fine, it’s usually painkillers that can cause problems. But you should always double-check with your doctor first because what might be ok for one person during their pregnancy might not be good for someone else during their pregnancy.
Tums and Rolaids are mostly calcium, and calcium is a neccessity for many women anyway, especially before and during birth (as well as after) to keep their bone strength. You should also be making sure you get plenty of Folic Acid (which I think is also in Tums and Rolaids, but I don’t have a bottle near me to check). Find a bottle of one or the other and see what the label says.
Good luck! And Congratulations!
Q: Are Tums safe to take throughout the entire pregnancy?
A: My doctor told me to take tums during my pregnancy because they are full of calcium and very safe
Q: What can I use to get rid of heartburn during pregnancy?
TUMS doesn’t work for me.
What else can I use that is safe during pregnancy?
A: ginger is a natural remedy…you can eat food with real ginger in it, like ginger chicken (yum!) or get the pills at a health food store (read the label to ensure it contains only ginger)…
you can also put one teaspoon of baking soda into a glass of 8 oz of water and stir until the baking soda is dissolved (very important)…it doesn’t taste very good, but it works super fast–you’ll be burping in no time
I have also eaten something high in protein so the acid has something to work on, like a 1/4 cup of walnuts—get your omega 3s and unsaturated fat along with acid relief
milk doesn’t work for me–it seems to create acid instead of reducing it…
Q: What have you found works well to get rid of heartburn and nausea during pregnancy?
I am 3 months pregnant with my second child. My doctor is on vacation for another 2 weeks, so I can’t ask him this… I need something to help me out with heartburn and nausea. I have AWFUL heartburn and nausea all day long. It doesn’t matter what I eat, how I sleep, what I drink.. I drink water and I get heartburn. I have some candied ginger I chew on that slightly helps the nausea, but not the heartburn, and TUMS and ROLAIDS only help the heartburn for a short time… I obviously need something safe for pregnancy and hopefully a food or something that will help… thanks
A: Ask your doctor about taking Prilosec or something similar, they allowed me to do it in the second trimester if I remember correctly, The nausea should be going away any day now. I was a big fan of rice cakes and ritz crackers. Also, try a small amount of caffeine free Pepsi or Coke.
Q: Can someone please tell me something i can do for severe heartburn besides Tums?
I am early on in pregnancy and have terrible heartburn and I can’t stomach the taste of tums or rolaids- is there anything else someone could tell me that works?
A: Milk will give you instant relief but not for a long period of time.
Q: I am almost 17 weeks and the heartburn phase of my pregnancy has just started…argh! Can I eat Tums?
A: You will become very familiar with Tums–I personally like the Smooth Berry kind. Just don’t take more then what the directions say.
Q: Does anyone out there know of anything other than tums that I can take for acid reflux?
I am 20 weeks pregnant, and I have acid reflux (before pregnancy) the medication that I took, I cannot take while pregnant. I have been using tums, but everything I eat causes it, and at times it gets so bad the tums have no affect. Any suggestions?
A: I hear ya:) I’ve been living on Tums and if the heart burn isn’t enough to make me cry the taste of the chalky tums is:) The best advice would be to call your doctor – because they know the full list of prescription medication for acid reflux that would be safe to take while pregnant. Drink milk – which i can’t stand either – but it does help and also eat smaller meals more often and try to avoid the foods that really make it bad. Good luck:)
Q: What everyday foods are good for pregnancy heartburn?
Well folks, I am hitting that third trimester, and the baby is high enough and pushing everything up enough to give me good old heartburn at night.
I just wanted to see what natural suggestions people had for getting rid of the heartburn. This is my second time around and I don’t remember what all I did with my first, besides Tums.
I’m looking for more along the lines of what I should put in dinner to help.
A: Well Drinking a cup of milk always helps me. I’m 33 wks along and I know all about the heartburn. Another thing you could do would be to try and hold off on your tomato type foods. That’s one of the worse heartburn starters for me bc of the acidicness of anything tomato LOL. Also keep a extra large container of tums by your bed at nite Water sometimes helped also, or taking a bath. Dunno why but it works for me
Q: What do you do for indegestion during pregnancy?
I am 18 weeks pregnant with my third child and I never have had indegestion. Now, I have indegestion all the time. What can I do to alleviate it? I have tried tums and it barely helps and I’m afraid to do much else. Any advice please.
A: I take tums! You can take pepcid or zantac too!
Q: How are you dealing with the heartburn during your pregnancy?
I take tums, literally daily and sometimes several a day. The worst seems to be at night before bed or in the middle of the night for me. I am 36 and a half weeks pregnant. Just wanted to know how other pregnant women were coping
A: Mine is horrible. Especially at night. Tums wouldn’t even touch it. So the Dr put me on Prilosec OTC (they have a generic at walmart) and my husband raised the head of our bed 4 inches. Those things have help tremendously!! I hardly have any trouble and if I do, I take a swig of Maalox Advanced..also safe. Prilosec OTC works a different way than Tums. Tums only helps to ease the effects of acid reflux/heartburn. Prilosec stops it from happening by stoping your stomach from producing the acid. Tums is a quick fix. For short term use. If it is happening daily, and Tums isn’t working you may need something else. Talk to your Dr. Also try not to eat anything at least 2-3 hours before bed.
Q: What kinds of things help heartburn or indigestion in pregnancy?
I tried eating smaller portions today, but I still have heartburn! The Tums aren’t quite doing the trick. Any other advice? Thanks!
A: This is from the website www.whattoexpect.com Helped me tons!!!
It’s that last stretch of pregnancy, when you can almost see the finish line — and it seems like your heartburn wants to stay with you every step of the way. Nearly half of your expectant running mates have also been feeling your pain — probably for most of their pregnancies — and with good reason. Among the smooth muscles that are loosening and relaxing under the strict orders of your hormonal regime is that ring of muscle that separates the esophagus from the stomach. When this muscle loosens, the harsh digestive juices from your tummy back up into your esophagus. The stomach acids irritate the sensitive esophageal lining (right around where your heart is, though it has nothing to do with your heart), creating that searing pain. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to put the fire out:
Sit up and take notice. Make sure to sit upright while eating — and stay that way for a couple of hours after you eat. Lying down, slouching, slumping, and stooping will do you in. And when you have to bend, do it with your knees instead of at your waist (or you’ll send all that acid for a repeat ride up your esophagus).
Chew it over. Do your body a favor and eat slowly. Chewing is the first step in the digestive process, but the one that’s most often neglected when eating’s done on the run. The more you chew, the less work your stomach has to do. Another chew that’s good for you: Chewing sugarless gum will increase saliva, which can help neutralize acid in the esophagus. And while you’re at it, leave stress off the menu — anxious eating compounds digestive distresses of all kinds, including heartburn.
Catch the early bird special. Not to save money — but to save yourself heartburn. Whether you’re eating at home or out, take your last big meal at least two hours before bedtime so your stomach can get started on digestion before you lie down for the night. (A before-bed snack is fine, so long as it’s light and easy to digest.)
Break it up. Better still, skip those big meals altogether — six small meals are the pregnancy solution to just about whatever ails you, from heartburn to bloating to lagging energy level, you name it.
Think loose and flowing. No matter how voluptuous your upper curves make you feel, if you have heartburn, now is not the time to wear anything that Pamela Anderson might favor — tight clothes just fuel the burn.
Don’t play with matches. Some things are sure to light your heartburn fire. Just say no to highly seasoned spicy food, caffeine (this also relaxes the esophageal valve), alcohol (which is off the menu anyway), greasy foods of all kinds, and too much citrus. (If OJ gives you trouble, water it down a bit — or buy a low acid variety.) Peppermint turns up the burn in some women, but not all.
Hold your head up. Sleeping with your head elevated about six inches can keep the burn from waking you up.
Keep it down. Extra pounds can make heartburn extra worse. Try to stay within the 25-to-35-pound recommended weight gain.
Raise your hand. Ask your practitioner whether he or she has a preference for an over-the-counter antacid or whether you need prescription strength. As you’ve probably already figured out, taking Tums or Rolaids is a great way to ban the burn while boosting your calcium intake.
Feel like a natural woman. If you want to avoid over-the-counter antacids, you can try the following popular folk remedies.
Papaya (fresh or dried): You can also ask your practitioner about the safety of using chewable papaya enzymes. (You can find these in health-food stores.)
Almonds: Good for calcium as well as being a stomach settler.
A tablespoon of honey in warm milk: Yummy and relaxing. Some say all dairy helps, and others say the opposite. (At the very least you’ll get in your calcium.)
Q: What should I use during pregnancy to get more calcium besides milk?
I was thinking about taking Oscal or either Tums with calcium-do anyone knows if these are beneficial.
A: It’s better to get it from food, but your prenatal vitamins have a lot. You should consult with your OB/GYN to be safe, but here is a short list of non-dairy foods that are calcium-rich:
Google your question, and you will find many more resources too long to list here.
Q: What are some foods/drinks/techniques to help combat nausea in early pregnancy?
My wife’s stomach is constantly gurgling and she has a lot of acid. I’m not so sure eating a ton of TUMS is the best thing for a pregnant woman. Any natural remedies?
A: crackers, ginger that has not been processed (ginger chews, ginger tea, or ginger ale), sea bands, lots of water…
Another thing – check to see when she is getting nauseous. If she seems to get ill feeling about 2 hours after a meal and/or first thing in the morning, she is probably letting her blood sugar get too low between meals and should have small protein-rich snacks throughout the day to keep her sugars up a scoop of peanut butter, bananas, trail mix, etc..).
To keep her from having MORNING sickness, have her eat a hard-boiled egg or banana before bed and then, on waking, peanut butter on toast with a cup of ginger tea.
If she is eating greasy foods, or consuming lots of caffeine – this too can cause nausea.
Good luck, it will soon pass, hang in there you two. )
Q: What foods or drinks caused the worst heartburn for you during your pregnancy?
I am 26 weeks pregnant, and EVERYTHING I eat or drink causes bad heartburn for me. EVEN WATER!!!
I do take Tums, but don’t like to take them a lot because they can cause kidney/bladder stones.
What foods/drinks should I completely avoid? What foods/drinks help?
A: with my first pregnancy, i really don’t recall having heartburn. with my second, i just had to look at food and i’d get heartburn. i think bread caused the worst heartburn. my doctor told me to take rolaids. i must have been popping those things like candy! i didn’t leave home without a whole bottle. the only thing that finally relieved it was his birth!
