    My doctor told me taking TUMS would be okay to help manage excess stomach acid

    Thoughts?

    I hope so, I practically ate hundreds of them (but only certain colours lol) when expecting my son! I used them for heartburn though, although I think this is the same as excess stomach acid (maybe not)

    They are safe, says on the packet take up to 7 in 24 hours if you are pregnant.

    it is just the excess stomach acid, which gives me nausea and horrible burps. It gets bad into the evening.
