Greeting lybrate-user, first of let me reassure that this is a totally treatable and also a very common problem among pregnant women. Now that you asked about safety, I would assume you are not a known hypertensive or a diabetic or an asthmatic. Answer to the problem is 1- you may reduce the symptoms by altering your lifestyle and food habits a): drink less water during eating b) many small meals and not one or two heavy meals c) not to lie down immediately after a meal, d) left lateral position while lying down. 2- if you have already done that and still have no relief then you could consider a few medications such as simethicone (acixx 5 ml) or gelusil chewable tablets which are safe during pregnancy. Please consult your primary care physician for more details. Thanks.

Regular check up after any major surgery is important for a patient. You must visit your operating doctor and should get a complete checkup to find out the reason of knee pain. Sometimes it can be just deficiency of calcium and vitamin d3 which can lead to severe pain in legs and generalized body ache with lethargy and weakness like symptoms.

Medically, none of the fruits are harmful. Eating or drinking juice from outside can cause stomach infection. If she has diabetes, then certain foods and fruits must be avoided.
