Soda from heartburn during pregnancy
Oh, and do not need to tell me how she gets the pot-bellied moms! It's just that there's no life-everything burns inside all the time! Heartburn during pregnancy is a phenomenon as frequent as unpleasant. Therefore, many pregnant women are saved from burning only with soda. But is it safe? No!
First, let's look at how soda extinguishes heartburn? After all, probably, each of us at least once in my life, and tried this method and made sure of its effectiveness. Indeed, soda helps very quickly. It reacts with gastric juice and neutralizes that acid, which causes us to feel a fire. But at the same time, carbon dioxide is formed, which increases the secretion of gastric juice. Thus, you repaid one serving, provoking the next one. The relief that has come is actually visible, as it entails the continuation of heartburn.
In addition, soda irritates the intestinal mucosa, so even out of pregnancy is not recommended for ingestion. And during pregnancy is completely forbidden! After all, what is baking soda? This is sodium bicarbonate. You, of course, do not care how chemists call it or who else is there - just to help! But know that sodium, accumulating in your body, will cause the appearance of edema, and if you already suffer from them - then further aggravate the situation. Be especially careful with this in the second half of the term.
And with regard to heartburn - there are many other ways to eliminate it. If you choose a drug, then for this during pregnancy only suitable so-called non-absorbing antacids. These include, for example, Maalox, Alfogel.
