Constant burp in pregnancy

Doctor, My wife is 2 months pregnant. Apart from the normal early symptoms she has, there are certain interval of the day where she has constant burp for full hour. She was saying that the bleching comes from deep inside throat area. If is caused by stomach gas, how can gas be expelled continuously and non stop for so long. Frequent small meals and easily digested food didn’t help. She had a hard time trying to control the burping . It isn’t hiccups, just expelling gas burp continuously. However I would like to bring out that she had this burping issue before she is pregnant. Recently is getting bit more. Also she hasn’t any appetite. And losing weight.

  1. Hello and thank you for posting on medimetry.During pregnancy increase in levels of hormone progesterone can cause slowing of digestion.This causes increased gas production leading to excessive burping and farting.As you mentioned the symptoms in your wife has been having these symptoms before pregnancy its possible that she has gastroesophageal reflux disease.She may take TABLET RANTAC 1 tablet two times a day for 5 days.It is safe in pregnancy.Take light frequent meals.Do not lie down immediately after meals.Take dinner at least 2 hours before sleeping.Try doing all this.If symptoms still persist please see a doctor and get examined.I sincerely hope it helps.Take care and keep me posted on your health.
