2 Common Pregnancy Problems And Their Solutions

Common Problems and Solutions during Pregnancy

While there is almost nothing that can beat the joy of becoming a mother, there are things to look out for during pregnancy. Here are some of them:


1. Heartburn

Heart burn is caused by hormonal and physical changes that your body undergoes during pregnancy.

Solution

Avoid foods that upset your stomach and eat smaller but more frequent meals with plenty of water in between. It helps to sleep propped up instead of flat and to have your last meal at least three hours before you go to sleep.


When to Worry

Heartburns usually do not cause any major problems but cause a lot of discomfort during pregnancy.


2. Constipation

Most pregnant women become constipated due to the hormonal changes that make your digestion much slower, as your baby starts to grow; there will be less space for your digestive system to function at its best.


Solution

Add more fruits, whole grains, vegetables and any other foods that are rich in fiber to your diet. Drink lots of water and if you still feel a lot of discomfort despite this, talk to your doctor. Do not take any medication on your own as some of them may cause contractions.


When to Worry

While constipation is not something that can cause any huge complications to your pregnancy, in some rare cases it can lead to fecal impaction.
