Many pregnant mothers are in the third trimester.There will be a feeling of burning heart. What is going on?
With the continuation of pregnancy time, the uterus of expectant mothers continues to increase, which will raise the diaphragm muscle upward, compress the stomach, increase the pressure in the stomach, and the speed of the stomach empty will slow, which causes the gastric juice to stay in the stomach for a long time.It is also easy to flow the gastric acid to the lower esophagus, causing the burning sensation of the stomach, and you feel heartburn in your chest.
After pregnancy, a pregnant mother will secrete a hormone called "progesterone". It can make the smooth muscle of the uterine smooth, reduce excitement and sensitivity, and will not cause contractions to ensure that the fetus stays safely in the uterus.But at the same time, "progesterone" will have a effect on cardia.The cardia is located at the connection between the stomach and the esophagus, which can prevent food and gastric acid from flowing into the esophagus in the stomach.Under the influence of progesterone, the library contraction becomes weakened (the sphincter of the esophagus is relaxed), and the gastric acid will return to the esophagus, which will cause heartburne.
In the third trimester, because the fetus continued to grow, the space of the uterus became smaller and smaller, the stomach was squeezed, and the stomach acid was forced to retreat to the cauliflower, causing the stomach to reflux, and even a hot feeling.It is different from acid reflux in the early pregnancy.
Let me teach you what to do?
Generally, a small amount of meals can be used. Do not let the stomach enter too much food at a time, reduce the stomach pressure and reduce the reflux of gastric acid.Avoid lying on the bed half an hour to one hour after eating, sleep at least two hours before going to bed, and give food a time to digest.
Eat less foods that cause uncomfortable stomach, such as carbonated drinks, acidic foods, spicy and greasy foods, and excessive acid fruits.Drink a small glass of water after a meal to dilute and wash away the gastric acid that reflux to the esophagus and reduce the burning sensation.You can change rice food as pasta; jujube, tofu, cabbage, carrots, yam, lotus seeds, etc.: They are foods that strengthen the spleen and stomach, as well as soda biscuits and bread slices to eat more properly;But drink it properly.
Chew slowly during meals to fully digest and absorb the food.Eat gum can also neutralize stomach acid.Don’t wear loose pregnant women’s clothes.When going to bed, pad the pillow to prevent gastric acid.
