Question: I m 38weak pregnant mere gala bohut jalta hai
Answer: Heartburn (also called acid indigestion or acid reflux) is a burning sensationthat often extends from the bottom of the breastbone to the lower throat. Many women experience heartburn for the first time during pregnancy, and although it's common and generally harmless, it can be quite uncomfortable.
Another 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. It is important that the foam be firm enough to truly elevate the upper body. The wedge should also extend all the way to the waist so that the entire chest is elevated. Using pillows alone will not work since this can put pressure on the stomach and aggravate symptoms.
6.) Lay on your left side at night
Lying on the left side at night may decrease acid reflux just as it does in women who are not pregnant, and other individuals with GERD. In this position, it is physically more difficult for acid to reflux into the esophagus. Occasionally, it may be necessary to sleep in a recliner chair at a 45-degree or greater angle.
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.) Don't smoke
Pregnant women should not smoke. In addition to harming the fetus, smokingweakens the lower esophageal sphincter and aggravates acid reflux.
9.) Bend right
Don't bend at the waist; bend at the knees instead.
10.) Avoid tight clothing
Avoid tight clothing, which puts pressure on your abdomen and can aggravate reflux.
11.) 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.
12.) 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.).
13.) 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.
14.) 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.
15.) 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.
16.) Sip liquids
Sip liquids instead of drinking large glasses of liquids at once.
17.) Chew gum
Chewing gum may be helpful in providing relief from heartburn. Chewing gum stimulates saliva, which contains bicarbonate. The saliva and bicarbonate are swallowed, and the bicarbonate neutralizes the acid that has backed up (refluxed) into the esophagus.
18.) OTC drugs for heartburn during pregnancy
If recommended by your doctor, you may take over-the-counter (OTC) medications including antacids (Tums, Rolaids, etc.), H2 blockers such as ranitidine (Zantac) or cimetidine (Tagamet), or proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) to help relieve heartburn symptoms.
Ginger is as natural remedy that helps some people with an upset stomach, nausea, or vomiting. However, ginger has not been approved by the FDA for such use.
20.) 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.

Question: I m 23weak pregnant but mujhe breathing prblm horahe hai bohut
Answer: It is common to experience shortness of breath especially in pregnancy.
• Your growing baby and expanding uterus push the diaphragm (the muscle that lies under the ribcage), restricting the amount of space for your lungs and making it hard for them to expand
• It will, therefore, make you to breathe faster, as if you have just run a marathon. It is quite normal and completely harmless to you and your fetus.
Caution: If you have breathlessness along with heart burn, racing pulse, palpitations or cold fingers and toes, it could indicate a serious complication of heart or lungs. You should immediately check with your doctor.
