Indigestion during Pregnancy

Pregnancy is one time that every woman looks forward to in her life. She is excited about the experience and is craving to hold her baby in her hands, and feel the joy and warmth that only babies can provide. Indeed, a woman is boon to us because only she is endowed with the right o giving birth to a child and bringing a new life to this world. The first thing that most couples look forward to is the birth of their first kid.

However, pregnancy is not an easy battle! Only a woman who has been pregnant knows what all it takes to make sure that the baby born is healthy one, and that it faces no harm. Pregnant women have to cut down on physical activity and are also cared for by family members so that the mental stress too gets eliminated. But some problems are bound to happen occasionally, which if cared for can be avoided too.

One of the most common problems faced by women during pregnancy is that of indigestion. Since the body undergoes many hormonal changes, even normal food habits may cause inconvenience and irritation to the body. At times, it would be difficult to predict why a nutritious meal would cause indigestion and whether it should be avoided. But such a step would usually not be of much help as something else might cause the same problem the next time.

During pregnancy, the stomach squeezes and the womb puts pressure on the internal organs and the intestines. The amount of fluids in the body increase thus resulting in indigestion which causes great inconvenience and irritation.

It would be good to maintain a relaxed lifestyle. Small portions of food should be eaten at short and regular intervals followed by short comfortable walks, regular light exercises and adequate sleeping. The food should be nutritious and non-greasy and non-spicy which will ensure that there is no burning in the stomach. Consuming of fresh lemon water would ensure that the food consumed is well-digested. Home spices like cumin, peppermint, cinnamon should be available at home at all times. Sipping a warm cinnamon tea after each meal would help in the digestion of the food. Soda, coffee and citrus juices etc should be avoided. Antacids and baking sodas should be kept away during pregnancy. Food should not be consumed immediately before going to bed. However, warm milk gives relief to some.

Cigarettes should be avoided as they could cause indigestion by increasing the stomach acids and cause heartburn. Even drugs and alcohol need to be avoided, as they have chances harming the baby. Tea and coffee too should be reduced, and vegetables like cauliflower and broccoli should be avoided. Loose fitting clothes around the abdomen should be worn to avoid discomfort. Intake of water should be increased and coconut water should be consumed.

If one experiences nausea, cold or hot sweats, unusual fatigue, dyspepsia and persistent heartburn, medical guidance should be taken as self-medication could harm the unborn baby.
