    To take indigestion remedies whilst being pregnant?

    I have these awful pains in my stomach, they are more uncomfortable than anything and its kinda just under my ribs, I've had it all night. It's sort like when babies lie with their feet in your ribs but it can't be that coz I'm not big enough yet.

    But I've been up since 4am with these pains I managed to doze off again at 6.30 and was up again at 7.20.

    I dunno whether to phone NHS Direct or just leave it. Knowing my luck it would be something like indigestion LOL but I've never had it so wouldn't really know what it was like.

    yes, certain remedies are safe, they usually have it stated clearly on the packet as pregnant women are obviously a target market for em :D

    Petic pepermint and rennie say on the label they can be taken during pregnancy. They never worked on me I threw them up again and they actually gave me worse heartbrun so I drink loads of milk and hope for the best now.
