I remember when I was pregnant with twins, I had a very difficult time with any red (tomato) sauce. When I laid down to go to sleep, invariably I would wake up within a couple of hours with the sauce burning my throat.
So foolishly, my solution was to keep eating the red sauce and sleep sitting up until 4 a.m., which caused me to drag the next day from low energy.
Hey, priorities right? I guess I loved red sauce more than sleep. Believe me after the twins were born, I wished I had slept more when I could.
Looking back, I should have given up the red sauce completely or had it for lunch instead of dinner so I could get a good night’s sleep.
Acid reflux during pregnancy is common and temporary for most; it should resolve after delivery and losing the baby weight. When you are already feeling heavy, bloated, and uncomfortable with pregnancy, the last thing you need is heartburn and acid reflux.
