    Not sure about the tablets I'm afraid. More ingredients may have been added to those than the liquid so you should check with the Dr or pharmacist.

    Manda,

    I checked with the NHS direct.. about taking Rennies.. as I used to take these on almost a daily basis before I was pregnant, due to my addiction to lovely white wine!
    And they said they are ok to take.. just not too many... Now I might take 1... IF i really really need it..

    I also try and have a swig of milk to try and help it out.. (I HATE milk.. but sometimes it helps) just like a small half glass.
    As for your strechmarks.. get the cocoa butter/bio-oil/ E45 cream on them! :)

    I can't take the liquid - even the advert makes me heave :puke:

    I'm taking the spearment rennie tablets... didn't even occue to me that they might not be OK.

    Still, I used them with DD and we're both fine and I'm using them this time too.

    :hug: :hug:

    definately have milk it works a treat and dont spend too much money on stretchmark creams.....like an idiot I spent £20 on bio-oil which does nothing more than keep your skin moisturised and maybe smoothes out previous scars and judging by reviews it does nothing to stop them appearing if they're going too. Cocoa butter is yum, affordable and really good for keeping skin soft and supple plus it smells a hell of alot better than bio-oil lol!

    I love the liquid Gaviscon. I like the feeling you get when its going down.

    Sorry to hear about your heartburn. What position do you sleep in? I seem to recall sleeping propped more upright is good for helping ease it.

    That has made me laugh so much!
    I have never thought of it like that - you're right though it is similar.
    Tastes nicer though

    i hate the liquid too - i have to drink a whole glass of water afterwards to get rid of the taste, which defeats the object! I also have the tablets but i think they are just as bad (if its the taste rather than the consistency that is the problem). Milk works better than anything else for me at the moment, i am drinking loads of it and just think it is good for you too!
