6w Tums for Morning Sickness??

I got sick again today. Yesterday my Brother in Law gave me half bottle of Extra Strength 750 Wintergreen Tums. He said it worked for his wife when she was pregnant. Im scared to try them bc im feeling like crap and terrified of throwing up again. I also haven't taken my prenatals for the past 3 days bc of how bad I was feeling...
Should I give it a try?

I'd try them! Might be heartburn making you sick. I have to take 2-3 100 strengh tumbs before I eat anything. Even then sometimes water makes me sick due to acid in my stomach. My doctor told me to take them or Rantidine 150 mg. It's helped so much!

I would try it. I am 32 weeks and have been using tums since the day I found out I was pregnant. :)

If you don't like the flavor try a different one, Tums were a saving grace for me in the beginning when I had horrible heartburn and morning sickness. I like the tropical fruit ones the most.
