    Pregnant? How to relieve and prevent acid reflux?

    Sura uppstötningar och halsbränna är ett vanligt, men också besvärligt problem för många gravida. Här går vi igenom vad det beror på – men också vad du kan göra för att förebygga och lindra besvären under graviditeten!

    Varför får man sura uppstötningar som gravid?

    Sura uppstötningar under graviditeten är vanliga och beror ofta på hormonella förändringar och trycket som den växande bebisen och livmodern orsakar. Även hormonet progesteron, som gör att musklerna slappnar av i mag-tarmkanalen, kan orsaka att magsyran rör sig uppåt och resulterar i sura uppstötningar. Inte så behagligt, men det finns några knep du kan prova för att lindra halsbrännan!

    Några knep att testa för att lindra besvären:

    1. Ät små måltider ofta. Genom att äta mindre portioner flera gånger om dagen istället för några få, stora portioner, kan du undvika att magsäcken blir helt full och därmed minska risken för sura uppstötningar.
    2. Undvik kolsyrade drycker. Kolsyra kan öka trycket i magen, vilket kan öka risken för sura uppstötningar. Välj dryck utan kolsyra istället!
    3. Dags att bulla upp med kuddar! Att sova med huvudändan lite högre än vanligt kan hjälpa till att förhindra att magsyran rör sig uppåt i matstrupen.
    4. Undvik stora måltider innan läggdags, försök istället att äta minst två till tre timmar innan du går och lägger dig för att ge din kropp lite tid att smälta maten.
    5. Ta kontakt med en läkare om halsbrännan och uppstötningarna blir för besvärliga. Det finns säkra preparat anpassade för gravida som kan hjälpa till att lindra besvären.

    Sura uppstötningar är ett vanligt förekommande graviditetssymptom, men det gör det inte mindre besvärligt att tampas med. Testa dig fram och se vad som fungerar för dig när det kommer till lindring, blir besvären inte bättre kan du be din barnmorska om råd!
