burning feeling above stomach?

anyone experience a burning feeling right above the stomach and below the chest especially after coughing or sneezing? my wife thats 7months is having those once in awhile latley, and having numbness in her hands sometimes. Is this all normal during pregnancy?

Thanks for any advice.
Still young at heart

Re: burning feeling above stomach?

It sounds like your wife is having acid reflux which is very common in pregnancy. The stomach gets all jammed up in the ribs and the acid is forced upwards. Eating smaller, more frequent meals helps and it's also safe for her to take tums and some other antacids, but she should probably check with her doctor first. Tums have helped me a lot.

The numbness in the hands is also normal - I've had it since about week 25 and it has developed into Carpal Tunnel syndrome. It should go away after pregnancy.

Hope this helps.
