I suffer from digestion problems. Why?

One effects of hormones in pregnancy is to cause muscle relaxation. When the muscles in your tummy relax this can allow stomach acid to come up and can cause the burning feeling known as heartburn. This is very common from 2nd trimester on wards. Food also stays longer in your stomach because the process of digestion takes longer and so you may suffer from indigestion more readily, as well as constipation.
