OK been there. If you are using antacids like tums stop it is not the problem and is causing more. acid is caused by two things too much acid (tums works) and too little acid (tums makes it worse). If you have too little acid (as happened in a few of my preg) an antacid suppresses what little acid you have making your acid burn worse. To find out if this is the case all you need to do is get more acid into your stomach and the problem will lessen quickly, if it isn't the prob. you'll know right away too. Take a glass of water and add lemon juice to it. Fairly strong. don't use lemonade that has sugar in it that will offset the results just water and lemon. Drink while you are eating. If this works you'll need to suppliment your acid probably until you give birth. If you still have acid problems after trying this go see your doctor.

I was sick the entire 9 months!! I feel your pain, but the old wives tale says that the more nausous you are the healthier the baby is!! I dont know how that works but I've heard it a 100 times from all kinds of people! lol!

I was puking 6 times a day. I drank ginger lemon tea, and took vitamin B complex in liquid form. That really helped, not sure why. My midwife told me Tums were bad because it interferes with proper digestion. The soda crackers and ginger ale (not the cheap, fake stuff) also helped.

As far as the acid try Zantac. My doc told me it was safe to use. Since I started taking it I have been so much better. before Zantac I think I was solely keeping TUMS in business. I mast have taken 30-40 a week. Talk to your doc about the morning sickness there are things thay can give you to help. I don't know what because I never had bad issues with that. My SIL did and I know they prescribed something. Good luck.

I had some of the most horrible morning sickness ever with my first pregnancy. There is a medicine that your doctor can give you to curb the sickness but it will make you very very very sleepy!!

Ginger candy was really helpful for me. You can get it at health food stores and it's really cheap.

I had the same thing happen till my 8th month of pregnancy when i was preg with my daughter, and the only thing i could suggest is that u get some malox. The good thing about a ruff pregnancy is that you will have such a good baby after, the less the sickness is they seem to come out fighsty.lol, i only say that cause i had both a girl and boy.
