I just found out that I am pregnant ( :-) )... I have GERD and have been taking Nexium for many years, it's the only medication that really helps me. With pregnancy, I experienced lower abdominal pain,and got really worried, but then I was told that's its normal. I asked the doctors in the ER if nexium is safe to take during pregnancy, and both OBGYN doctors at the hospital said yes, since it is a part B drug it is SAFE to take. Yesterday however, I had a visit with my OBGYN who is completely against nexium, prilosec or any other drug except for zantac. I tried taking zantac, but I do not feel any relief whatsoever. I consulted pharmacists and other doctors who clearly state that it is safe to take nexium during pregnancy. I am sure I am not the only pregnant woman with this problem, can someone please advise as to whether nexium is safe to take during pregnancy and if you actually took it and your babies are healthy.
