Can i take this while pregnant? I went a little overboard with dinner tonight and its not exactly heartburn, its more like a huge bubble sitting in there... which i know baking soda helps with, but i cant quite figure out if its safe to use the typical baking soda in water antacid while pregnant...

for the record, i dont have high blood pressure or anything, its sort of low actually. not horribly low, but lower than my NON pregnant bp

thanks in advance!

it should be fine. tums is calcium carbonate, and baking soda is bicarbonate. obviously I'm not a hcp, but I'd take it and feel safe

I took it during pregnancy. I figured if I bake with it, whats the harm in taking it in water?

From what I understand it's okay, but be careful it's also a bit of a laxative, and tastes nasty!
Try some activated charcoal?
