In brief: GI sxs in Pregnancy

Gi symptoms in pregnancy are common.
Nausea & vomiting begin in the 1st trimester of 90% of patients due in part to Progesterone which delays gastric & intestinal emptying.For similar reason, heartburn occurs in 2/3rds of pregnant women. 31% get constipated, most often in the 1st trimester. There are lots of reasons for acute abdominal pain in pregnancy, but most require evaluation & intervention.
