Patient :I am 25 weeks pregnant and I feel like food is t digesting at all, I will eat and 7 hours later have horrible pressure of the food pressing back up my throat I try to sleep propped up on pillows but it doesn't help and at least once a week it will cause me to be sick as the food is just sitting there. I have tried milk (it curdles) tums, gaviscon and even have omeprazole from the doctors but my food still just sits there in an evening levying a horrible full feeling, will digestive enzymes help and are they safe in pregnancy?
