Pregnancy, acid reflux and not wanting to eat.

Answered on August 19, 2014

Someone I know has the following question for you all...

What are some good foods to eat for someone who is pregnant and has severe acid refux? Before I resort to Zantac I want to find out what foods to eat and what to avoid to see if I can cure it myself. It's hard to eat food because nothing sounds good. Thoughts?

Apple cider vinegar has helped me, too.

Thanks Sondra! I was actually thinking about emailing you too but now I don't have to since you answered this question first. Thanks! I went to the guest post you did on my blog and told the individual about it. I like these recommendations so I will pass them on :)

I had this problem big time while I was pregnant. I had to really limit my carbs to mitigate the problem. Also eating more fat really seemed to help.

Smaller meals and small amounts of kombucha or apple cider vinegar with meals can help.

Definitely avoid gluten!

Try potatoes or sweet potatoes with butter or some tapioca pudding, if meat and eggs aren't appealing right now. Cottage cheese may work, too.

I don't know much about pregnancy but I do know about acid reflux.

  1. No grains, especially gluten! However, later in pregnancy I would try some sprouted bread in very small amounts just to make sure the baby is not gluten-intolerant.

  2. Go low carb in the morning, higher in fat (good fats that do not cause heartburn). Save your carbs for the evening.

  3. Try eliminating foods high in FODMAPS.

  4. Steaming and boiling are better than frying and baking.

  5. Bone broth in the morning among other foods.

Thyroid problems can cause low stomach acid. It's what caused mine.

I eliminated my heartburn by eliminating gluten and have suffered none since being pregnant. I limit my carb intake in general (T2 diabetic), but no longer suffer horrible heartburn from spicy or fatty foods. My pregnancies prior to eliminating gluten required that I eat a jar of Rolaids a week.
