Question: I m 8 month of pregnant and i have pain in my left side of ribs
Answer: Dear you must check if pain is below ribs or on the ribs. If it is immediately below your last rib. And it pains more at nighttime. Then it is Acidity and gastric pain is most common in third trimester due to the hormonal effect on stomach muscles and the inner lining which relaxes and causes slow food peristalsis hence accumulating food in stomach and intestine for more than normal and causing gas. Do not worry As your gynae about gelusil or magnesium antacids. Try to eat meals every 2 hours keep them short. Eat at least 5 fruits a day. Do a little exercise in morning to help body balance the hormones. Drink at least 3 lt water every day. Having coconut water once a day relives acidity by balancing your ph. Avoid eating lemon at night time. Take care.
