8. Interesting fact about the eighth month of the pregnancy

Gastric motility decreases and the gastric emptying time (time taken for the food to go to the small intestine from the stomach) also increases.

This causes food to remain in the stomach longer, and because the gastro-oesophageal sphincter (Valve which is present between the Oesophagus and Stomach) is more relaxed. This causes the reflux of food into the oesophagus and causes gastritis.
