Heartburn and Indigestion during Pregnancy

Heartburn
  • Heartburn is a burning senesation in the center of the chest.
  • It actually has nothing to do with heart.
  • It may get severe during the second (4-6 months) and third trimester (7-9 months) of pregnancy.
       Causes
       Increase secretion of female hormones during pregency relaxes the sphincter between the stomach and the food pipe                   (oesophagus) that normally prevents the stomach acids from passing back into the oesophagus. This allows the stomach acid to pass into oesophagus and irritate its lining.

      Indigestion
      Indigestion or dyspepsia is the digestion-related discomfort in the abdomen.

      Causes:
  •  Hormonal changes during early pregnancy.
  • Pressure of the growing womb on the stomach in the later pregnancy.
  • Excessive intake of tea, coffee, caffeine, fried or fatty food or less intake of water may worsen it.
       Symptoms:
  •  Heartburn
  • Excess gas
  • Bloating of abdomen
  • Burping
  • Feeling of fullness after a normal meal.
        Do's
  • Eat smaller meals more often rather than three large meals.
  • Eat yogurt(curd) or drink a glass of milk.
  • Sit up straight when you are eating.
  • Sleep well propped up, raising the head side of your bed.
        Don'ts
  • Don't eat foods, which cause trouble. Avoid fried, spicy or rich foods.
  • Don't drink much while eating.
  • Don't eat or drink for a few hours before going to bed.
  • Don't lie down immediately after eating.
