pepto and 3rd tri?

So, tums wasn't working well for me and my doc said it was OK for me to take pepto. Now, I'm reading from some others that its not OK. I took it once yesterday. Has anyone else taken pepto ? I'm 27w and 4d.

For heartburn?  I have hadhad itit soso bad for the past two weeks! I started with tums, then graduated to zantac. That stopped working so my doctor switched me to prilosec which is definitely helping a lot. I occasionally still take a tums.
