Pregnancy Questions and Answers

Question:
Can I do anything about heartburn?
Answer:
Yes. Antacids may provide considerable relief. Follow the directions relating to pregnancy on the package or your doctor's instructions. Don't overdo it. You can use antacids, such as Amphojel®, Gelusil®, milk of magnesia and Maalox, without much concern. Avoid sodium bicarbonate because it could cause you to retain water. In addition to antacids, try the following tips for heartburn relief.
Eat smaller, more frequent meals.
Avoid eating before bedtime.
When lying down, elevate your head and shoulders.
