Omeprezole during pregnancy


Anyone taking omeprezole (Prilosec) during the third trimester? I have had horrible le indigestion and my dr put me on it and it's been a month and it's working great but now I learned that it may not be safe for the baby. Anyone take this and have any issues?

I've taken it since second trimester with this pregnancy and most of the last trimester of my last pregnancy, it was prescribed by my GP who said it was fine for use in pregnancy. I take 20mg once per day x

My midwife said it was okay to take, I only take it when my reflux is unbearable because it makes me nervous.

Is this for heartburn? I'm at my witts end! Never had it this bad! I'm taking a Zantac every day and have already got through 5 boxes of Tums antacids as they are the only thing to slightly help! I'm now 34 weeks and it's making me so sick I'm vomiting with it and it's making me not want to eat or drink!
