indigestion

I have never had indegestion before but I think I have it now due to pregnancy. Is it a burning feeling in your stomache and constant burping?? It hurts in my tummy and up a little bit???? Like I said I have never had it before this. Thanks

Re: indigestion

I've just started getting heartburn (which it sounds like you have). Especially at night when I lie down to go to sleep. It is caused by the hormones your body secretes to loosen your muscles and ligaments before birth. And also because the baby is pushing your stomach up. Try drinking a glass of milk slowly. If it gets too bad then there are medications you can take but you should check with a pharmacist or your doctor before taking them to make sure they are OK in pregnancy.

Re: indigestion

I am 22 wks and I have never had heartburn or anything similiar either untill now. Get yourself a big bottle of tums and start getting used to the taste. It sucks but tums help. I take them everywhere I go. I have heartburn all the time , everyday.

Re: indigestion

Tums are safe to use. I heard you should only take 7 per day, but I don't know if this is valid. I take them for my heartburn and I don't have to take that many. Good Luck.
