Question: I am just 6 weeks pregnant I have gastric problem very much. Is it normal? How it can be cured?
Answer: Gastric problem is normal in pregnancy and it may cause of cramps in stomach.
One of the more effective ways to remedy gas during pregnancy is to monitor your diet. While you can't restrict everything that gives you gas without affecting your nutrition as well as the nutrition of the baby, certain food culprits that produce particularly bad gas can be avoided. The same types of foods the produce gas outside of pregnancy also can produce gas during your pregnancy, such as high-fiber foods like oat bran, most fruits, beans, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower, as well as some starchy foods like potatoes and corn. High-fat and fried foods can increase both the intensity and odor of gas. Keep a food diary to help you determine which foods are causing the worst gas and either reduce them from your diet or find other foods that do not produce as much gas but still provide similar nutrition.
Adjusting the size and frequency of your meals also might help reduce problems with pregnancy gas. Sticking to just three large meals increases the work for your digestive tract, increasing the risks for gas development. Eat smaller meals more frequently instead, which not only helps reduce gas but also can help control your blood sugar levels. This is because you are introducing a more constant, smaller stream of glucose into your bloodstream, instead of just three large amounts during the day.
The way you eat your meals also can affect how much gas is produced. Limit the time you spend lying down and eating. Instead, get in a seated position while you eat, and stay seated immediately after eating to help digestion and reduce the risk of gas.
Several other eating and drinking habits can be introduced to help reduce gas. For example, slow down how fast you eat. The faster you eat, the more likely you will swallow air with your food, contributing to gas. Drinks should be consumed from a cup or glass, not through a straw or squirt lid for the same reason, as it can increase the amount of air you swallow. Carbonated drinks as well as any food or beverage that contains sorbitol or other artificial sweeteners should be avoided, as these also can contribute to gas.
For serious gas, your doctor might be prescribe an anti-gas medication. Do not take an over-the-counter medication for gas unless told to by your doctor, as even over-the-counter medications might have an impact on your pregnancy.

Question: Hello Dr I am 6 week pregnant from last two days I am suffering from gastric problem and acidity even gastric problem occurs whole day......
Since you are just in the first trimester it is common.
Keep something to eat besides bed while sleeping at night. First thing in the morning instead of getting up(sitting) put something in mouth and chew properly for a minute or so (lying on bed itself) and then get up and sit ..it helps a lot in settling down acidity and gastritis.
*Cold milk without sugar.. 2 3 sips after every hour, vanilla icecream.
*I had major acidity during pregnancy.
Dont have spicy food, have small frequent meals, and Chilled milk in small sips, eat saunf after meals help alot, avoid canned juices, have coconut water, chewing gum can give temporary relief, you should have dinner early at least 1.5-2 hours before sleep can drink a glass of cold milk before sleeping.
Dont worry it will get better in 2nd trimester.
