Pregnancy can cause intense heartburn that can be very persistent. During the first trimester, I had a few bouts of heartburn. However, my heartburn has gotten more intense in the last few weeks.
Pregnant women can experience heartburn for a few reasons. First, hormones relax the sphincters in the digestive system, which can allow back flow of stomach acid.
In addition, as the baby grows, everything will be pushed up a bit to make room for the baby.
In this video, I discuss my heartburn experience, and I also give you my top foods that help to relieve my heartburn.
