Pregnancy and Heartburn Pain

Get rid of that burning sensation

If you have never had heartburn before in your life, then you will more than likely experience it during your first pregnancy. This is typically when women experience their first case of heartburn, and it is completely normal, uncomfortable, but normal. Heartburn is also known as acid reflux or indigestion. It can be described as a burning sensation that occurs in the lower part of your throat. The changes that your body is going through during your pregnancy are usually what cause heartburn. In some women, their heartburn can last all throughout their pregnancy up until the baby is actually born!

There are some simple things that you can do to try and relieve that burning sensation, first try to stray away from carbonated beverages such as soda, which you should be staying away from anyways. You want to stay away from the drinks that will make you burps because that can set off your heartburn and cause you that unwanted discomfort.

Instead of eating big huge meals during the day try eating less food and smaller meals and smaller portions. And when you do eat a meal try to take your time when you eat, do not rush, and make sure that you are chewing your food thoroughly. While you are eating try not to drink too much fluids, while it is important to drink a lot of fluids throughout the day, when eating you should just try and take sips of your drinks between bits of your food.

If you find that you simply cannot find anything that will help relieve the pain and discomfort you are experiencing, talk to your doctor about taking some over the counter medications like antacids. Be careful about choosing the right antacid because some of them contain aluminum and aspirin and you want to try and avoid those as much as possible during your pregnancy. And if these methods do not work for you, talk to your doctor again about other medications that they can prescribe. This is quite uncommon, but it can occur and your doctor is there to help you relieve your unwanted heartburn.

Heartburn is common among pregnant women, and it can be a big pain. There are measures you can take to try and prevent it and try to relieve it, but it probably will not fully go away until you give birth to your baby. So find a method of relief that works for you and stick to it.
