Q:

having very bad acidity although m eating no spice food taking cold milk digene etc. anyone else facing the same issue in 31st week of pregnancy. I've consulted my gynac and she suggested to take Rantac D or Pan D tablets. are these affective? m worried if my baby is effected due to this acid reflux.

It's safe to take these medicines.... I had a similar issue during my pregnancy.... Increase ur water intake.... Iron tablets also cause acidity so u can monitor that if iron is causing you these get ur medicine changed by ur gyeno

my water n fluid intake is sufficient I think. taking 3 ltrs of water milk butter milk etc. I will try avoiding my iron tablet for a day n see if the problem still persists.thanks Jyoti.

Hi.  Some mothers have more acidity than others.. But your baby is not affected.. Reflux happens cuz the osephagus n stomach get compressed as the expanding uterus occupies more n more space inside u... Put up with it  .. Keep up your fluid intake... Trust your baby to have good hair... Hair growth causes heartburn too

Smita Rao

Good hair ....really....if dats the case I will take this problem with grace...thanks a lot Ank M.

Even i had severe heartburn during pregnancy.  I used to take  antacids and  always kept parle g or any sweet biscuits by my bed side.   It  helped with heartburn.  Also i drank lot of water.  I don't know how heartburn and baby hair are connected,  but my baby did have good hair.  So,   fingers crossed.
