  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Some gastric upset happens during pregnancy. It is a common problem during pregnancy. Avoid hot spicy and fatty meals. Take small frequent meals instead of full stomach at one time. Do not lie down immediately after meals. Avoid stress and undue medicines esp pain killers etc. Some amount of walk twice a day also helps.
    If does not get relieved and you have irritable bowel also, it's better if you contact your gynaecologist.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
