37 weeks, Fed up and totally irresponsible - toddler just ate one of my gaviscon tablets. Advice needed

Thats it really - have been following the 'I want this baby out' type threads and demolishing the 'is it easier to have a newborn and toddler then be heavily pregnant with toddler' thread and feeling extremely wiped by pregnancy this time round

My 18m DS is normally a total angel but has is beginning to show signs of FREE WILL which is causing a few issues

I just found him munching on my lemon gaviscon. Anyone know if this is an issue ?
When I held his nose to get him to open up so I could fish it out he just bit down with those razor sharp teeth and drew blood at which point I realised it was game over and he had won.

Think it should be okay if pregnant ladies are prescribed it by the gallon but please let me know if you know any different.

I feel like such a crap mum today sad

It happens to all of us.

They are not recommended for kids under 6 so I would phone the GP if I were you.

Try not to worry.

i am totally understanding you. i am 36 ish weeks and have 17 month old and 5 year old. so fed up of been pregnant now, its such hard work when u have a toddler to look after. i would also just check with gp about the tablet but i am sure it wouldnt be an issue.
i am also hoping that once baby is born it going to be easier as at least i will have the energy to tackle everything ( i hope )

Keep your chin up and keep me posted how u get on xxxxxxxxx

sorry to butt in but my ds (3.5yrs) has eaten several of my rennie tablets over the course of this pregnancy (38+5) and it was fine, even though he looked like a rabied animal foaming at the mouth!!! feel like a crap parent right now!!
