Indigestion often happens following the eating or drinking activities and is identified as a burning sensation within the throat. This happens when the ‘mucosa' (lining of your stomach) damages because of acids produced in the stomach.
While most pregnant women suffer from heartburn, the attacks are often mild and happen after some time durations.
In some serious conditions, you may also feel:
It leads to inflammation in the lower chest, back of the throat, and is often caused due to pressure being put on your stomach by the baby and due to overeating.
Hormonal changes that happen during the course of your pregnancy can also add to the symptoms of indigestion. This happens when your muscles relax and the gullet and stomach parts. Besides, psychological aspects such as fatigue and stress are also believed to be some contributing factors for the condition.Speak to a Doctor about Heartburn and Indigestion
