28 Weeks and Hiatal Hernia
almostthereseptember posted:
I was just wondering if anyone else is dealing with the frustrating effects of a hiatal hernia in the 3rd or even 2nd trimester? It's when part of your stomach slides up and down in the are of the esophagus known as the hiatus. It bulges in there and creates acid. It started getting annoying around week 16 and since then I have been eating less. I can't eat most of anything, not so much because of the acid, but because I feel full so fast on so little. I cannot have milk or refined sugars now, or anything salty or fatty. I have to sit down for at least an hour after eating because the pressure on my stomach is too much, my legs will feel full of pressure as well. I am trying to deal with it as best as I can, but I am down to about 1200-1500 calories per day, and that's a struggle to get in sometimes. Any help or testimonies will be appreciated, thanks.
