We asked you what was ailing you and it turns out that the responses we got were a lot of the same pregnancy complaints- things that top the list for pregnant women all over the world. You are NOT alone! So we made our list, did the research, and we are excited to give you all the details about how you can find relief.
Because we wanted to cover the solutions to these common ailments in detail, we decided to split this topic up into 2 episodes. Here's what we covered in Part 1:
-About half of pregnant women experience this sometime throughout their pregnancy
-Caused by the hormones Relaxin & Progesterone
-Valve between esophagus and stomach that allows food to pass through and cuts off stomach acid from coming back up gets relaxed from those hormones.
-Things move more slowly through body
-Big meals can especially cause it
-Baby getting bigger and creating more pressure on stomach, moving it higher
-Eat smaller, more frequent meals, sit up...
