By week 12, you may be experiencing new symptoms that could cause alarm at first. Fortunately, most of these symptoms are completely normal and no cause for worry. Heartburn is a common problem that may develop around this time, and it causes a burning or painful sensation in your throat and chest. Many women who've never had heartburn get it for the first time during pregnancy because of hormones that affect your digestion. If your heartburn is very severe, there may be a problem.
