Hormones: During pregnancy your body changes and so do the female hormones. The esophagus and stomach also become displaced anatomically due to the developing pregnancy.

Pills neutralize the acid and stop reflux pressure into stomach. ...Read more

Unwise: Simply because something is "natural" and "safe" does not mean it is either one during pregnancy.

Pregnancy does change your metabolism and if you are consuming enough calories you should gain weight without resorting to supplements.. ...Read more

Could i be retaining water ? I gained weight on a healthy low cal diet + weight baring exercises. Why am i not loosing? So upset!
Retaining water?: If you are retaining water, you will have rapid weight gain. People that retain water get up at night to urinate. Are you doing that? You should weigh yourself after you get up in the morning, after you urinate. If you gain weight daily, it is due to fluid accumulation, not due to increased muscle mass. Muscle mass takes longer to increase your weight than does fluid accumulation. Good luck. ...Read more

Ask the tech how confident they are. ...Read more
