During pregnancy, progesterone production in the body is increased by 10 times compared with the index before conception.

When milk is lactose intolerance can lead to the same result. Pregnant women with lactose intolerance need to use soy milk substitutes.
4-5 meals a day in small portions instead of traditional heavy breakfast, lunch and dinner, can significantly reduce belching. Carefully chew food, and do not talk during the meal.
