Answer: Hello dear. A natural remedy for heartburn involves the use of baking soda (which is sodium bicarbonate) to neutralize stomach acid - mix one tablespoon in½ cup of water and drink to relievesymptoms. Tell your doctor before using any natural remedies. 1.) Foods that can cause heartburn during pregnancy include chocolate, peppermint, caffeinated beverages (such as coffee, tea, and soft drinks), fatty foods, and alcohol. 2.) Because heartburn during pregnancy is thought to be caused by pregnancy hormones, heartburn will usually go away after delivery and no further treatment is needed. 3.) Heartburn during pregnancy is caused by a combination of pregnancy hormones and the growing baby inside you pushing on your abdominal organs. Fortunately, heartburn during pregnancy usually goes away after delivery. 4.)Foods may also aggravate heartburn during pregnancy. All the same foods that cause heartburn in non-pregnant people can cause heartburn during pregnancy, including: chocolate, peppermint, caffeinated beverages (such as coffee, tea, and soft drinks), fatty foods, and alcohol. 5.) Raise the head of your bed The two feet of the head of the bed should be raised on 6 to 8 inch blocks. Alternatively, a 6 to 8 inch wedge-shaped foam rubber pad should be used to elevate the upper body. 6.) Lay on your left side at night 7.) Don't bend over after eating After meals avoid activities that require you to bend over. Instead take a short walk, do light housework, or surf the internet to avoid bending over. 8.) Bend right Don't bend at the waist; bend at the knees instead. 9.) Avoid tight clothing Avoid tight clothing, which puts pressure on your abdomen and can aggravate reflux. 10.) Eat yogurt or drink milk Eating yogurt or drinking a glass of milk may help ease heartburn symptoms. If you are lactose intolerant choose lactose free products. 11.) Foods to avoid heartburn during pregnancy Any specific foods that aggravate heartburn should be avoided (for example, coffee, cola, tea, alcohol, chocolate, fatty or fried foods, citrus fruits and juices, spicy foods, tomato, mint, etc.). 12.) Eat small, frequent meals Frequent, small meals should be eaten rather than three large meals, and the last meal of the day should be early in the evening at least three hours before bedtime. Women who are pregnant and have heartburn should not lie down soon after a meal. 13.) Don't eat so fast! Slow down when you eat. Eating too quickly can lead to heartburn. Eating slowly can keep you from becoming too full, which can also result in heartburn. 14.) Cut out large amounts of liquids Try not to drink large amounts of liquids after the last meal of the day because the more empty the stomach is at bedtime, the less likely there will be reflux of acid. 15.) Sip liquids Sip liquids instead of drinking large glasses of liquids at once. 16.) Ginger 17.) Other home remedies for heartburn during pregnancy Other home and natural remedies for heartburn include apple cider vinegar, 2-3 teaspoons in an 8-ounce glass of water. It is believed that even though apple cider vinegar is acidic, it helps balance the acid production in the stomach or buffer the acid activity. There is no evidence that homeopathic remedies work to treat heartburn during pregnancy. If you are interested in trying a homeopathic remedy, talk to your doctor first, and consult a registered homeopath. Hope this helps.

Answer: Hello dear. In pregnancy, they cause changes in the urinary tract, and that makes women more likely to get infections. Also, your growing uterus presses on your bladder. That makes it hard for you to let out all the urine in your bladder. Leftover urine can be a source of infection. Remedies are Drink plenty of water. Don't ignore the urge to pee.
