User:could you plz suggest us what cud be the best diet at this point of time for her ..
Doctor:it is common for her to have, increased acid reflux during this time
Doctor:hence, she should not eat foods that are known heartburn triggers. These include chocolate, citrus fruits and juices, tomatoes and tomato-based products, mustard, vinegar, mint products, and spicy, highly seasoned, fried, and fatty foods.
Doctor:Eating a well-balanced diet is the cornerstone of good nutrition during the third trimester
Doctor:Mothers-to-be should focus on eating whole grain bread and cereal products, a variety of fruits and vegetables, lean sources of protein and low-fat dairy products
Doctor:eating five or six mini-meals to reduce acid indigestion.
Doctor:she should definitely eliminate spicy and fatty foods from her diet.
Doctor:she should Avoid drinks containing caffeine (coffee, tea, cola) because these can relax the esophagus sphincter and allow acid to reflux back into the esophagus.
User:do you have any kind of list of foods & time table so that she would follow it..

Doctor:that could be due to dryness of the skin
Doctor:which stretches during the 3rd trimester
User:okay doctor..
User:which side she should lie down on bed..
Doctor:The position that is usually recommended is to sleep on your left side. Sleeping on the back can put too much pressure on your back and compress important blood vessels.
Doctor:she can try hugging a pillow or putting a small pillow between your knees.
User:recently she was suffered with urine infection & she took the medicien called cifron..500
Doctor:may i know who advised that medicine
Doctor:it should not be taken during pregnancy ?
Doctor:ciprofloxacin, is not advisble during pregnancy, so other antibiotics, should have been advised instead of that
Doctor:But, i guess, your wife is feeling better , and the infection has subsided
User:yes doctor she is better now...
User:but still she has one problem
User:whenever urine is ready to come she feels liittle pain below belly button..
Doctor:that is also a common, issue during this time, as a result, of the pressure of the growing uterus, on the bladder
Doctor:Abdominal aches are usually related to the stretching tummy and the ligaments in the abdomen. The growing uterus and baby also cause crowding in the abdominal area.
User:is there any side effet due to cifron 500 ?
Doctor:since it was during the 3rd trimester, the effects are limited , and there is no need to worry as such
Doctor:the effects can be more, during the 1st trimester
