Thanks for choosing causes many hormonal and physical changes in a woman's body.Due to hormones there is vomiting called morning sickness usually in the first 3 months of pregnancy ,will subside by then.The muscles at the junction of the esophagus and the stomach relax, and the uterus presses on the stomach from below, causing the stomach contents to flow back into the esophagus and hence the heartburn and vomit.You may also be constipated. One of the pregnancy hormones causes the muscles of the digestive tract to relax; therefore, they pass the food more slowly through the intestines. In addition, the uterus can press on the colon, inhibiting passage of feces. key to these problems is in having small but frequent meals ,fresh fruits,nuts,drink lots of fluids like buttermilk,coconut water,fresh fruit juices etc..Donot worry .as the pregnancy progresses these will ease.
