Why every time as I’m stuffed and uncomfortable?
The high levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone that your body produces in early pregnancy relax so-called smooth muscles, including the gastrointestinal system.
This relaxation slows down the processes of digestion, which can cause swelling in the stomach, indigestion and discomfort after eating, especially if it was a meal. You can have:
• feeling of swollen belly
• heartburn, sometimes for the first time in my life
• nausea or vomiting
• reflow (when the food looks back to the mouth)
My poor digestion can be harmful to the baby?
No. The poor digestion is something really boring to you, but is harmless to him.
In fact she may even be positive, because with the slow digestion your body has more time to get nutrients from food to pass to the baby through the placenta.
What can I do to improve?
Get ready, since with some poor digestion you will have to get along in pregnancy. And you can get more from topbbacolleges.
But you can try some measures to reduce the intensity and frequency of symptoms:
• wear comfortable clothes and larguinhas; avoid any tightness in the waist and tummy. It is worth investing in a maternity pants even before I had a belly.
• do not make great meals. Eat several times during the day, in smaller portions. Do not eat, and chew well.
• try not to lie down for at least 1 hour after eating.
• Avoid foods that don’t take well to your digestive system. Those who tend to cause more problems are soft drinks and other beverages with caffeine, alcohol (which should be avoided anyway in pregnancy), fruit juices, chocolate and fried foods, fatty or spicy too strong.
• do not smoke (this is also a habit that should be avoided during pregnancy). Use strategies to try to abandon or reduce smoking, since he favours the heartburn and indigestion.
• Sleep semi-sentada, with the help of pillows.
