It was heartburn that got me in the end. I could take the swelling, the back pain, the constant trips to the bathroom, the itchy skin, the fatigue, the sweating, the sleeplessness and even the psychological shock of seeing the scale tip 200 pounds. But the constant, searing pain of heartburn made the miracle of pregnancy seem more like a curse—by the middle of my third trimester, my mantra had changed from “Please, let him be healthy!” to “Just get him OUT!”

That fiery sensation known as heartburn happens when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), a muscle responsible for keeping stomach contents in their place, begins to relax or leak. this allows stomach acids to flow upward into the esophagus, explains Suzanne Trupin, M.D., CEO of Women’s Health Practice of Champaign, Ill.

Pregnant women are prime candidates for two reasons: First, the hormone relaxin—busy limbering up your joints and connective tissue for an easier delivery—slows your digestion, meaning food stays in your stomach longer and triggers more acid production. Second, your growing baby exerts pressure on both the stomach and the LES, increasing the chance that acids will be pushed up into the esophagus.

So what’s an expectant mother to do? Follow these five tips to relieve the pain:

1. Eat Less, More Often
Overeating exacerbates heartburn, says rachel Brandeis, M.S., a registered dietitian in Atlanta who specializes in prenatal nutrition. “When you’re pregnant, there’s less room for your stomach to expand,” she explains. and maintaining a sensible diet will not only stave off heartburn in the short term, but throughout your pregnancy as well, because gaining more than the recommended weight puts more pressure on your abdomen, which can trigger the condition. instead of three meals a day, aim for six mini-meals (See “Mini-Size Me”) of no more than 1½ cups of food each, Brandeis recommends. Smaller meals are easier for your body to digest.


2. Eliminate Trigger Foods
Identify the foods that intensify your heartburn and banish them from your diet. While there are no universally “banned” foods, common heartburn triggers include acidic foods, such as citrus fruits and tomatoes, greasy or fried foods, spicy foods, chocolate, coffee and carbonated beverages and alcohol (which, as you well know, you should eliminate anyway!).

3. Focus on Fluids
“Liquid-y foods are less likely to cause problems than solids, since they move through the stomach more quickly,” Brandeis says. Soups, smoothies, yogurt, milkshakes, protein shakes and puddings are good choices. Look for liquids that offer plenty of protein, such as milk and drinkable yogurt. and aim to make solids a little less so: “chew solid foods slowly and extremely well, until they’re almost liquefied,” Brandeis adds. Make quick and healthy smoothies in a flash at  fitpregnancy.com/smoothies.

4. Sleep Smart
To avoid nighttime heartburn, don’t eat anything for at least three hours before bedtime. Elevate the head of your bed by placing books under the legs, and if you’re not already sleeping on your left side, start now; stomach acids will have to travel uphill to reach the esophagus—no easy feat!

5. Time for Tums
It’s fine to find relief in a bottle of tums or rolaids or other calcium- containing antacids. However, “too much calcium can block iron absorption, so don’t take tums at the same time you take your prenatal vitamin,” Brandeis advises. By the time i gave birth, i estimate i’d ingested my own considerable body weight in tums. This overuse created calcium overload, which may have exacerbated my anemia. acids 10 times a day (or more—as i was), talk to your doctor: she may want to check for ulcers or a hiatal hernia (where part of the stomach protrudes into the chest cavity), or prescribe medication.

Also, avoid antacids that list aluminum (such as aluminum hydroxide or aluminum carbonate) as an ingredient; it can cause constipation and can even be toxic in large doses. remedies containing aspirin (such as alka-seltzer) should also be avoided during pregnancy; look for salicylate or acetylsalicylic acid in ingredients lists. You don’t want an antacid containing sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) or sodium citrate, either. Both are high in sodium, which causes water retention.

Mini-Size Me
Here’s a sample of what a day’s worth of small, healthful meals looks like:

1 cup of oatmeal with nonfat milk and 1 apple

1 cup of yogurt with fruit

½ peanut butter and jelly sandwich and 1 cup of vegetable soup

1 handful of whole-grain crackers and 1 ounce of your favorite hard cheese

2 ounces of chicken, ½ cup of mashed sweet potatoes and ½ cup of cottage cheese with fruit

      When i was in my first pregnancy, i experienced hyperemesis gravidarum on my first trimester, then on the third trimester i experienced this heartburn, also my baby bum was so big that the estimated weight from the ultrasound was 4 kilograms, i used pillows on my back and positioned myself on my left side while sleeping. I did also experienced heartburn again with my 2nd pregnancy where it was a twin pregnancy. And i got a very hard time positioning myself when sleeping.

    My Biggest Thing Was Not Keeping Food Down. Heartburn only bothered me in the beginning. Once I started drinking milk because it was all I could keep down I no longer had heartburn. I did start craving milk A LOT. I could drink a gallon in three days. Drink milk, it helps!!

    These tips really do work! When I was pregnant I really didn’t get heartburn till the last month, but that’s mostly because I strayed away from my strict healthy eating. Stay a way from fried foods, and tomatoes. Fruit and water are your best friends. Also portion control and you should have a pretty calm pregnancy. Good luck to you all who are experiencing it.

    I just had a baby on December 1 2016 and I did everything in my pregnancy to prevent heartburn ! NOTHING WORKS! You literally have to let it run its course ! A lot of people told me that my baby would have a lot of hair and I didn’t believe because I didn’t feel that had nothing to do with her hair . . But now I second guess it because my baby came out with so much hair , that’s all people talk about! So heartburn might be a good sign for mothers who doesn’t want to have a bald baby ?

    This article would have most definitely been helpful in the last trimester of my pregnancy. Heartburn would only affect me at night when I would get in bed.. The heartburn would awaken me out of my sleep aspirating! I think that was the worse part of my entire pregnancy.. Feeling as though you are choking and burning vomit coming up your esophagus is no fun! I’m not considering another pregnancy anytime soon but when I do decide to conceive again this article would definitely help a lot!
