Your Body

Pregnancy can cause some unpleasant side effects when it comes to digestion. Not only does the hormone progesterone slow the emptying of the stomach — it also relaxes the valve at the entrance to the stomach so that it doesn't close properly. This lets acidic stomach contents move upward into the esophagus. The result: reflux (also known as heartburn) that can make eating your favorite meals a nightmare.

The expanding uterus puts additional pressure on the stomach in the last few months of pregnancy. Try eating smaller, more frequent meals, and avoid spicy and fatty foods.
