Hi,

With increasing duration of pregnancy the abdomen becomes more distended and tensed - this causes pressure on the diaphragm and upper abdomen - this could cause a muscle pul, muscle spasm, or even reflux symptoms.

Sleep with your head end elevated, eat small frequent meals, avoid tea , caffiene and drink milk and yoghurt and this should help with your symptoms.

All these could present with the symptoms you are currently having.

I have tried to give an extensive answer, however please let me know if you need any other information.

Hi,



The same reason as above - abdominal distension - increases pressure on the abdominal organs like urinary bladder and in some cases even the rectum.
