Our bodies are constantly changing. Someone told me your body changes every five to seven years. I'm not sure if that's true or not, but ...

Some people develop Asthma as adults and they never had it as children. Some people have Allergies as children and then "grow out" of the allergies when they become adults.

Pregnancy causes some serious changes to your body. I would think developing acid reflux after a pregnancy isn't totally out of the ordinary but I'm not a medical professional!

Acid reflux is extremely common in pregnancy. All of your organs, including your stomach, are displaced because of the uterus enlarging. You also have a whole host of hormones that are changing the way food tastes and what foods will cause reflux symptoms. Try to pay attention to which foods seem to make your symptoms worse and avoid these--often the symptoms will go away after the baby has been delivered.
