Avatar f tn The first time I had heartburn I took Prilosec. It works wonders! It's a 24 hour medicine. I highly recommend it and it's safe during pregnancy.

Avatar f tn She said by the time she walked from her kitchen to her bedroom it was totally gone! I don't have heartburn during pregnancy but she swore by it because hers was so bad.
Avatar n tn What treatments for heartburn are safe during pregnancy? During pregnancy, the medical treatment of reflux should be balanced to alleviate the mother’s symptoms of heartburn, while protecting the developing fetus. Step 1: Modification of diet & lifestyle Step 2: Antacids are probably safe. Sodium bicarbonate can cause a condition known as metabolic acidosis and should be avoided during pregnancy.
Avatar f tn My doctor gave me a list of approved medicines, however it says to avoid during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Here are a few of the items on the list. Cough/Cold: Robitussin (cough), Sucrets and Vick's Throat Lozenges Its says do not take "SA' (Sustained action) forms of these drugs or the "Multi-symptom" forms of these drugs.

Avatar n tn Having a period means you are shedding the lining of your uterus. So I would say, it's not normal nor possible. Some bleeding can be considered within normal limits and so can some types of cramps. If you feel like this is a REAL period, and the bleeding and cramping are plentiful, I would suggest contacting your OB for a check. How far along are you?
Avatar f tn Nexium is a category B heartburn medicine and safe to take during pregnancy.
Avatar n tn That really helped with the heartburn. I'm 24 weeks now and still dealing with gas and heartburn but it is not near as bad as it was. Hang in there mama! If it gets really bad, tell your doctor. There are medications that can help.
Avatar f tn Tums worked for me. They're safe during pregnancy so I'd pop em every time I got heartburn. And my doctor told me that eating less amounts in one sitting and more often throughout the day-6 times or so rather than 3-helps. It was hard for me to follow that guideline bc let's face it, I was pregnant and I'd just splurge lol... hope this helps. I'm sorry... heartburn *****:( my little guy is 4 wks old and has acid reflux and is just miserable:( I feel sooo bad!
231441 tn?1333896366 I've tried tums. No go is not better than eating candy! Eno seems to help (fizzy fruit salt drink), particularly after a few good big burps. :) Sleeping on left side.
Avatar n tn Hi Ladies, I am 9 weeks pregnant and I have TERRIBLE gas pain and I have to get some relief! My Dr. is out of the office this week. What is safe to take during pregnancy? I can't take this anymore! Anytime I eat ANYTHING I have stomach pain for hours. Any thoughts are appreciated!
Avatar f tn So now to my question, has anyone or would anyone have some wine during their pregnancy? I'm not even sure if I would but, I have a lot of special occasions coming up (my birthday, our anniversary, thanksgiving, chirstmas) and I wondered if anyone had done it during their pregnancy now or in the past.

Avatar n tn I'm a 60 year old men, in excellent health, except for experiencing tremors during sleep that wake me up and have difficulty going back to sleep. As I start to fall sleep again, I feel these "rumbleling" (tremors) around my upper body. I immediately wake up again. These tremors last for about 10-15 seconds after I wake up. The first time I experienced this condition was exactly two years ago. It lasted for about four days and it simply went away.
Avatar n tn Hi, An OBG specialist of all the doctors on board would take special care in prescribing medication which are safe during pregnancy and cause no untoward effects on the baby. Virlix is cetrizine and you can take it for your symptoms. You should in addition, follow up with your doctor regularly and get all routine investigations done as and when required. Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts. Hope this helps. Regards.
Avatar f tn You can eat them but make sure you have some heartburn medicine somewhere close by. You'll probably get horrible heartburn!
Avatar n tn Talk to your doctor about using Sudafed during the first 3 months of pregnancy. If your doctor says not to use Sudafed during the first 3 months, you may use diphenhydramine (die-fen-HI-dra-meen), like Benadryl. Take 1 to 2 Benadryl tablets (25mg to 50mg), every 6 hours as needed. Use Benadryl with caution. It may make you drowsy. For a sore throat, gargle with warm salt water or mouthwash. Suck on cough drops or throat lozenges.
Avatar n tn Hi, I was wondering what you ever found out about your pregnancy after having your partial?? I feel i'm having the same problem. Please let me know how it is going and if you've found any answers.

Avatar n tn I had my tubes tied 11 years ago. I have had symptoms of pregnancy for about a week and a half. Bloating, constipation, throwing up, tender breasts, etc. I had a blood test done two days ago that came back negative, but my period isn't due for another 5 days. My last period came two weeks early and wasn't very heavy. How often do tubes come untied? And could I be pregnant even though the blood test came back negative?
Avatar n tn is it normal to get a negative pregnancy test 24 hours after embryo transfer?
Avatar f tn Just to add on my comment on May 23, 2008. I had my fibroid surgery 2 years ago and trying to get preg after got better from the surgery but no luck. I think HSG played a big role on positive preg test result. Just an opinion...Who knows!
Avatar n tn I am looking for more info on pregnancy after an endometrial ablation. I had an ablation in May 2002. January 2003 I was not feeling well and went to the family doctor. She thought it may be an ectopic pregnancy since I was told I was sterile. I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue.
