Why womens Vomit during pregnancy
While in pregnancy vomiting,neusea are common.Most of the women have same symptoms during first trimester( first three month) then usually gone from fourth month onwards. The vomitting is in morning time then will be okay, but some womens have entire day with this.ery rarely, a pregnant woman may experience a more serious condition involving severe vomiting, dehydration, and weight loss. This is called hyperemesis gravidarum.
The cause of morning sickness or vomitting is unknown but mostly points to rapid changes in hormone levels. These fluctuations may cause changes in the muscle contraction and relaxation patterns of your stomach and intestines, thus leading to nausea and vomiting.
Hormones slow down digestion, which could trigger heartburn, indigestion, and acid reflux, which are all considered possible symptoms of pregnancy and potential triggers of vomiting during pregnancy. It is important, however, for women to distinguish between normal pregnancy symptoms and potentially dangerous conditions accompanied by vomiting, such as hyperemesis gravidarum. Hyperemesis gravidarum is a condition where women experience more severe symptoms of pregnancy, such as profuse nausea and vomiting. These symptoms can have severe consequences, such as weight loss, rapid heart rate, and low blood pressure. Severe vomiting can prevent your baby from getting the nutrients he needs to grow and develop at optimal health.
How to Treat Vomiting During Pregnancy?
Women experiencing morning sickness can lessen the effects by making small changes to their daily routines. For some women, certain smells can trigger nausea and vomiting, so avoiding those smells while pregnant is recommended. Also, having a little food in your stomach can lessen the effects of nausea. It can be good to carry snacks around in your purse or leave them in spots that you visit every day, such as in your car, by your bed, and in your drawer at work.
Way to solve morning sickness
- Morning:Allow yourself plenty of time to get out of bed. If you usually get up at 6:00 a.m., set your alarm for 5:00 a.m. It is a good idea to keep a stash of crackers or dry cereal by your bed so you can put something in your stomach as soon as you wake up. Get out of bed slowly as you start your day.
- During day:Eat small meals throughout the day to avoid getting too full or too hungry. Progesterone slows the speed of food passing through your digestive tract. To further prevent your stomach from getting too full or too empty, drink fluids a 1/2 hour before or after meals, but not with meals. Also make sure to drink fluids throughout the day to avoid dehydration.DON’T take a nap right after a meal because this can increase nausea.Avoid foods or smells that make your nausea worse, and avoid being in warm places, which can increase your nausea.
- Evening :Avoid spicy, greasy foods. Prepare foods that are bland and do not have a strong odor. You may have to avoid cooking for the first trimester.Most importantly, go to bed early. You need your rest to have the energy to get up early and do it all over again. If you happen to wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, try to eat something small from your bedside stash.
