Answer: During pregnancy, changing hormone levels slow down your digestive system, weaken the stomach, and your uterus can crowd your stomach, pushing stomach acids upward.
Here are few suggestions which might help you.
Eat several small meals each day instead of three large meals.
Drink warm liquids.
Avoid fried, spicy, or rich foods, or any foods that seem to give you indigestion.
Don't lie down right after eating.
Keep the head of your bed higher than the foot of your bed. Or, place pillows under your shoulders to prevent stomach acids from rising into your throat.
Don't mix fatty foods with sweets in one meal, and try to separate liquids and solids at meals.
