Heartburn

Early pregnancy symptom

Heartburn is typically associated with later pregnancy as the baby grows and takes up more and more space in the abdominal cavity, but the hormones produced in early pregnancy can also cause heartburn. Progesterone, which relaxes the smooth muscles of the uterus, may also relax the valve between the esophagus and the stomach, allowing stomach acid to travel back up to the esophagus, causing heartburn even in early pregnancy.
