Heartburn

What can i do about this heartburn and indigestion??? Everytime i eat something its like my throat is on fire!!! WIth my last daughter i ate a 5lb bag of cooking flour from the freezer but my baby was born with flour all over her and my doctor said though it helped me it wasn't really good for the baby! Ugh i want some flour so bad right now but i don't want to harm the baby! What do i do?

Re: Heartburn

Ask your Dr. if you can take Pepcid!!  That is what I have taken for this pregnancy and the last.  But you have to get the Dr.'s ok before you do.  Also, if it get's too bad I eat white bread and drink a lot of water.  I am not able to drink anything but water this time around or my heartburn gets really bad.  Good luck.

Re: Heartburn

I agree on the Pepcid but make sure to ask your doctor first.  This article might help as well...

Re: Heartburn

I take TUMS... I suffered from acid reflux and heartburn from before i got pregnant. TUMS helps!

Regarding flour ingested during pregnancy for heartburn relief...Do you think it was likely Vernix covering baby's skin when she was born? Vernix is a white substance that covers your baby's skin sometimes at birth. It helps protect the baby's skin from amniotic fluid.

Re: Heartburn

Btw-Food that you eat cannot cover the baby's skin. Tums smoothies extra strength was a savior to me.

Re: Heartburn

Your baby was not covered in flour. Seriously?
