Gaviscon is fine. You would have to tell me the exact date of your last period for me to tell how far pregnant you are.

Best wishes

You calculate the weeks of your pregnancy from the first day of your last period.

Yes, gaviscon is safe during pregnancy.
Also try eating smaller meals more often an avoiding spicy foods and don''t lie down after a meal and drink milk after eating. All these things should help a bit with heartburn.


You need to see your doctor to confirm that you are indeed pregnant and have not just missed your period for other reasons. You also need to have your blood pressure checked and your urine checked.

Antenatal classes or a book such as what to expect when you are expecting will be very helpful to you.
