Causes & Overcoming Excessive Burping In Pregnancy

Careline

Arora Valley answered:

During pregnancy, overeating or eating too fast, eating certain foods and drinks or anxiety and depression can lead to heartburn and bloating, leading to burps. It actually can be minimized with simple lifestyle changes- 1-Wear loose, comfortable clothing, nothing tight around your waist or stomach. 2-Instead of eating three big meals, have several small meals throughout the day. Take your time eating, and chew thoroughly. Wait at least an hour after meals before lying down. 3-Avoid foods that cause gastrointestinal distress like sugary, fizzy drinks (like coke), carbonated water, caffeinated beverages, alcohol, processed meats, or foods that are spicy, highly-seasoned, fried, or fatty. 4-Eat a serving of plain yogurt a day, preferably with live cultures. 5-Avoid gassy foods such as cabbage, beans, fried foods and onions that affects your digestive tract. 6-Try to relax. Stress and anxiety may cause you to swallow air, both during meals and throughout the day. 7-Use pillows to elevate your head when you sleep to prevent stomach acid from rising. If these changes do not ease symptoms, over-the-counter medicines such as antacids may be safe to take. Always consult your doctor before taking any type of medication while you are pregnant.

I had the same problem too when I was expecting, especially during the 3rd trimester. Consulted my dr and she told me cos the uterus is pressing against our diaphragm as the baby grows, so she suggested that we sit on a flat surface and get hubby to hold our armpits and help us stretch upwards gently (i.e. like someone trying to pull u to stand up). This is to create some space and will help us breathe better and less heartburn. It works for me, especially after a heavy meal. Give it a try to see if it works :)
