yes, these antacids can be taken when pregnant.

Hi, I saw your question and just wanted to give you a different opinion. You say you are 12 weeks pregnant...have you had a scan yet that has confirmed the pregnancy is progressing normally and most importantly that that the pregnancy is definitely in the womb?
If you have and all was well then I would go along with the other expert's advice above.
However if you have not had a scan yet you need to go to A&E without delay as the pain and faintness you describe are also signs of an ectopic pregnancy where the pregnancy is stuck in the fallopian tube. This can be very, very dangerous.
So...if you've had a normal scan, fine. Follow the advice above.
BUT if you have not yet been scanned please go to A&E and get checked out immediately.
