There is no one right way to experience pregnancy. Some women feel great throughout their pregnancy, while others may be plagued by heartburn and other inconveniences. No matter what your experience is, it is perfectly normal. If you are struggling with heartburn, there are a few things you can do to help alleviate the discomfort.
Heartburn is one of the worst things you can experience. It’s a constant burning sensation in your throat and esophagus, and it can be incredibly painful and disruptive. Unfortunately, I know this all too well, as I experienced it during pregnancy. If you’re struggling with heartburn, there are a few things you can do to try to alleviate it, though unfortunately there is no surefire cure. Try sleeping with your head elevated, avoiding spicy or fatty foods, and not eating close to bedtime. Hopefully these tips will help you get some relief from the discomfort of heartburn.
* Tip 1: I have found that milk is a good remedy for heartburn. It has worked for me in the past and I would recommend it to others who are suffering from this condition.
* Tip 2: You should avoid eating large meals. Instead, it’s better to eat several smaller portions throughout the day. This will help you feel more comfortable and avoid overeating.
* Tip 3: Coffee and carbonated beverages can increase the amount of acid in your stomach. When this happens, it is more likely that you will experience acid reflux. To avoid this, try to avoid these drinks, especially with meals.
* Tip 4: I personally found that I couldn’t sleep lying flat on my back, but if I put a pillow under myself, I could manage to get at least a little sleep. This was because lying down exacerbated my heartburn.
* Tip 5: If you feel heartburn coming on, you should try a dry slice of bread. Many people find that this helps to neutralize the acids in their stomach and gives them some relief.
* Tip 6: It is important to avoid greasy foods like pizza, fries, sausage, and other similar items. These foods can clog your arteries and lead to serious health problems. Instead, focus on eating healthy, whole foods that will help improve your overall health.
* Tip 7: A great way to neutralize acid is to constantly chew on peeled almonds or hazelnuts. This will help keep your mouth healthy and free from acid buildup.
* Tip 8: I personally really enjoy half a teaspoon of medium hot mustard. It has a good balance of heat and flavor that I think is really enjoyable. I would highly recommend giving it a try if you are looking for a new condiment to try out.
* Tip 9: I got Gaviscon Advanced from the pharmacy. It’s a medicine that you can safely take while pregnant.
* Tip 10: There are many drugstores that carry healing clay in the form of capsules. This clay can neutralize the acid in the esophagus and promote healing.
* Tip 11: Potato juice is an effective way to prevent heartburn during pregnancy. The potato juice neutralizes stomach acid and Queen of the Meadow can soothe the digestive tract.
* Tip 12: Cut a small piece of ginger root and pour boiling water over it. Allow the tea to steep for 3–5 minutes before sweetening it a little with honey to help with this troublesome heartburn. Ginger has long been used as a natural remedy for upset stomachs, so drink up and feel relief soon!
If you’re struggling with heartburn during pregnancy, know that you’re not alone. Up to 80 percent of pregnant women will experience heartburn at some point. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to get relief.
Changing your diet is one of the easiest ways to lessen pregnancy heartburn. Avoiding trigger foods, eating smaller meals, and avoiding eating right before bed can all help. You should also avoid wearing tight clothing, especially around your waist. If you can, prop yourself up with pillows when you sleep to keep acid from creeping up your throat.
